The victim

December 15, 2017

People laugh and mock.

Stare and flock.

They push and shove.

Bruise and scar.

The victims sit back and do nothin.

Too afraid to act, afraid to even move.

They flee into own world to ignore how much pain is boiling within.

Foul word spit from mouths.

Black eyes are formed.

They cry out for help but no help arrives.

Their mind race with memories of their unfair past.

Chasing dreams that never seem to pass.

Day after day is the same.

No peace, no rest,

just a mess.

The author's comments:

This is poem about pain and suffering of teens who feel so misunderstood and a total outcast. I was inspired by how much pain has been presented in my own life and I used that pain to form words.
