Shall I tell thee of my woes

Where all my deepest secrets lie

The very thought tingles my toes

But I truely must abide 


My eyes water and my heart aches

For we're all placed by caste 

Oh how much more can I take 

When I'm forced to wear a mask 


But it is what i hear 

That makes me want to weep

The joyous laughter and good cheer

With no part can i ever hope to seek 


I see the world for what it truley is 

The colours of black and white 

Nothing to say, Nothing true to be 

But this realization helped me take flight 


For here i'm lifted up and away from constantly being teased

Away from the cold harsh world where society is never pleased

The author's comments:

I wrote this peom to express the view of those who are bullied and are put down. Though it may seem harmless, it can intensly effect someone, and i believe everyone needs to be aware of that.
