I can't sleep
my mind is racing
with unwanted thoughts 
and memories
the way you tortured me
with your words
and your hate
that made me hate myself
"I know how you feel"
they tell me
but they don't
no one knows 
or has to go through
all the b.s. 
that I have gone through
and one day
I'll just burst 
with rage and sadness
the darkness within me
will take over
there's no turning back
the damage is done.

The author's comments:
What inspired me to write this is the topic of bullying. Many kids and teens these days are being bullied and I don't think it's right no matter what that person is like. I hope that this poem will help teens understand a bit more about what its like to be bullied or bothered because of something you do or what you look like.
