"Friendship isn't always easy, but there's no doubt it's worth fighting for."

Taunts and teasing start,
The dam breaks, and her tears flow.
She feels so worthless.

Why do they do it?
Why do they love to bully?
Do they like her pain?

"No one wants you here,"
Was written on her locker,
So she'd remember.

AMAZING. I can relate to this sooo much. Bullies bully because that hate themselves and projecting them on others to make themselves feel better. I know that

I love this. It's sends a very convicting message, and I can tell you felt really vulnerable. Exposing yourself to write this paid off, well done.

You capture the vulnerability of the victim and the inner deep rooted emotion in her heart. This poem cascades with pathos for the victim. Well done. You detail with acute precision the affects of bullying.
