I found confidence
Knowing they couldn’t see my face.
Wearing my screen name as a mask,
My fingers moved like pistons,
Spitting out words
Otherwise hard to swallow.
My keyboard was like a weapon
Crippling people’s self-esteem
While serving to augment my own.

I seemed to think
I couldn’t be traced,
Until one day
A brave victim fought back.
I was caught red-handed,
The incriminating evidence
Printed in black and white

I love this poem. This is exactly why I don't have a Myspace or Facebook because there nothing but drama.
