“I am so clever that sometimes I don't understand a single word of what I am saying.”
― Oscar Wilde

“You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.”
― Dr. Seuss

“It is better to remain silent at the risk of being thought a fool, than to talk and remove all doubt of it.”
― Maurice Switzer

Sticks and stones may break my bones, but the names you call me will always hurt
Just because they are words doesn’t mean that they don’t still hurt
Just because they are words doesn’t mean that they won’t make me cry
Just because they are only words doesn’t mean that they still can’t kill
A clever nursery rhyme does not make the pain go away
A cheerful smile I get from my mother when she tell me it’ll be ok doesn’t make me stop crying
A pat on the back from my dad doesn’t keep the suicidal thoughts out of my head
The smile that was once on my face has disappeared
The dry eyes that I used to have are no more
The happy days I used to have turned into distant dreams
All from the names … the names that do hurt

I'm not personally bullied, but i was when I was younger and I know that it feels horrible and believe that no one should ever have to go through that.
