The words you say sting like bees
Even if I can barely hear.
They travel through the hallway, up and down,
Sweeping softly from ear to ear.

Though the voices are quiet and gentle,
The meaning underneath them is sharp.
And the rumors pile and weigh me down
Like rain on a weakening tarp.

These words, they're spreading like wildfire,
Traveling faster than a propelled dart.
But what you don't know is that there's another fire,
And this one's in my heart.

One of the biggest lessons that you never learn
Is that I don't sit back and obey.
I am my own individual, and trapped inside your unhappy self
Is somewhere I'll refuse to stay.

It's like an exciting game for you;
To see how many take your side.
The sea of numbers is in your favor,
But to you, I will never abide.

So go ahead, fight this-one man battle
And I'll watch the fear in your eyes
As you open your pretty little unconcealed mouth
And speak more whispered lies.

"Life isn’t about how popular you are… What girl or boy you are dating or who you know. Life is about always being true to who you are or what you believe in. Never let anyone convince you that their way is better than your way. In the end all we have is our hearts.. and our minds. This is the reason we sing.. this is the reason we cry… this is why we live."

hey, this is rlly good. However, you should try to write it as a story, beacause the flow of the words, if you stick them together the flow would work better as pharagraphes. and that would just be amazing. Try expanding each thoug, because i see you have lots more to express. Other than that, it was phenomeanal.
