"Do not hide behind the image of who you wish to be, or you will lose sight of who you once were."

They whisper their cruel words
They stifle their teasing laughs
They hide their gawking stares

They think I don’t see, or don’t want me to see

But I see
They backhand their insults
They play their little games
They smoothen their lies
They blog their hate

They think I don’t know
But I know

Don’t be a coward
Say exactly what you mean
Don’t hide behind euphemisms
Don’t play games; they won’t last for long

I have a four-year sentence under your torment
Then I will be free
And you’ll answer to me

I wrote this piece about the various forms of bullying. There’s the indiscreet bullying and the direct bullying, from whispering rumors to people’s friends to making hate blogs about someone on the internet. Whichever way you bully, whether it’s indiscreet or direct, someone still gets hurt. Getting bullied sucks, so don’t do it.
