Hurting Inside MAG

By Kyle S., Goodyear, AZ

They said one in every 10 school kids is obese.
We saw that article and counted the kids at the table.
There were 10 of us and one obese kid.
I was the obese kid.
We all had a good laugh.
But mine was forced.
I was hurting inside.
Tired of all the ridicule and fat jokes.
Although I may not show it,
I am hurting inside.
Although I laugh with them,
I am hurting inside.
Although I don’t say anything,
I am hurting inside.
I want them to stop.
I want them to quit.
But they don’t.
And as they continue,
I am hurting inside.
