The wounds you leave, they burn so deep,
the words you say, you shouldn't speak,
and everywhere I go I hear your name,
I think I'm going insane,
you think I'm small and weak,
you think you have me beat,
but let me tell you the truth,
I'm stronger than you,
I'm standing on top of the world,
I'm not a scared, little girl,
I'm looking down, I'm standing proud,
and there's nothing you can do now.

I hate how people insult us when in fact, they are weaker than us. Nice writing skills :)))

In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life. It goes on. -Robert Frost

This is an outstanding piece! It is so powerful and yet so short! It takes an incredibly gifted writer to capture something that beautiful in such little words! Wonderful job!

I really like the strong will but usually rhyme is used in poems to lighten the tone. I think it could be a bit better if you had less rhyme, to keep the tone determined and intense...other than that, it's great! :)
