Do you know how it feels?

Yes, I'm that strange kid to laugh at
The one that is petite and fat
The kid that always has her nose in a thick old book
The kid who's feelings are badly shook.

Do you know how it is to be picked on?
To feel the pain that your always wrong?
Or to not want to come to school because of others?
Or to cry every night, keeping up your mothers?

Yes, I may look shrimpy
But at home, I don't get fed
Starved everyday until I no longer have a clear head
Did I also mention that my parents hit me?

Yes, I'm that strange kid to laugh at
The one that is petite and fat
The kid that always has her nose in a thick old book
The kid who's feelings are badly shook.


The author's comments:
When I was younger, my "cool friends" Would be rude to this one girl who walked kind of funny and carried a book around with her everywhere. They made fun of her day in and day out, I knew it couldn't feel to good, so I wrote a poem about it.
