I've been bullied and it makes me mad.
Sometimes I come home and cry to my mom and dad.
I think school is a great place
but not when someone makes fun of me to my face.
I try to be nice to everyone I know
even when I get made fun of just for show.
Being bullied will never stop me.
To be the best person I can be.
I know that one day everyone will finally see
how it truly feels to be me.
It can make you angry, sad and even bad,
But at the end of the day it makes me glad
to know that I am a stronger person because of it even though it makes me mad.
