My name to you is weird,
You believe that you are so much better than me,
You think you are popular,
Ha I think that's hilarious,
I have a name,
I don't have to bully someone to feel good about myself,
If you are popular then that is something i don't ever want to be,

We became friends at church,
But I still didn't know if I could trust you,
But when we became better friends,
Sharing each and every secret with each other,
You told the saddest one of all,
You whispered to me that your dad abused you,
You showed me the bruises he left,
Oh lord did I believe you,

I want to help but I don't have the courage,
Courage is what you have for being able to deal with these things,
Courage is something you have but I do not,

I take back what I said before,
Now knowing why you said and acted like you did,


The author's comments:
I'm sorry to say that this is a true story. Since I don't have the courage to stand up for her my paper and pen will. My real life story was a little bit different. And I haven't seen her at church since she told me she was abused I know she is ok because I have been able to keep in touch with her. I'm sorry

This is really sad. I like how you admit that you didn't have the courage to tell, it feels like you wish you did though. Amazing poem. Four out of five.

Life is a maybe. Death is for sure. Sin is the cause. Christ is the cure. :)

Love is the breath of God, and prayer is the melody that makes it sing.

If you cant annoy someone, there's no point in writing.

Love is overrated, marry for money.

This is so sad! :( But very well written! Five out of five stars! Great job!
