I am strong
I watch these happenings through their eyes, not mine.
I see these horrors every day,
And see them in my sleep now as well...
But I am strong.
I make it through each day because they do not matter.
Sticks and stones are all they have,
they cannot truly hurt me.
Because I am strong.
I carry my burdons and do not drop them.
I will succeed.
No matter what they do to me,
i will carry on.
I am capable of continuing,
I am strong.
They do this every day in hopes of breaking me.
They laugh at my attempts,
they glare at my success,
They jeer at my failures.
they speak of me the way no human should be spoken of...
They slander me when I leave,
they torture me if I stay,
They steal and break my possessions,
And yet I live on.
because I am strong...
I am strong... So i only cry when I am alone...
but I feel so alone.

I am sorry that it was, but glad that you found it relatable.

Don't worry, things will look up soon. If people slander you, it mean you steal their attention. Their jealousy cannot last forever :)
