Why is this happening to me?

That might have been funny to you.

On the outside, I am laughing at what you said.

But it was not funny to me.

On the inside, I am crying my heart out.

You tripped me, and I fell.

You kicked me while I was on the ground.

I stayed on the ground for a long time.

Somebody help me.

Is there anybody to talk to?

A teacher; I`ll just get called a snitch

A school counselor; I`ll be asked what I did to evoke it.

Somebody listen to me.

I need to share how I feel.

I need to know that I am not alone.

I need help.

Somebody to talk to me.

If they don’t like what they see, than I sure don’t like what I see in myself.

I`ll change everything about who I am, just to be liked.

Change my life, just to feel like I am not a waste of space.

Somebody? Anybody?

I don`t know who I am anymore.

I don`t recognize myself.

Maybe the world would be better off without me.

Would anyone care if I die?

Would anyone notice if I left this world?


I Guess not.

Good Bye.


I just scared myself.

I put the blade back where I got it from.

I was about to end my life.

But something happened.

I found somebody.

Somebody to pick me up off the ground.

Somebody to dust me off.

Somebody to live for.

Somebody to stand up for.

Somebody who against all odds, Stayed Strong.

I am that somebody.

That somebody is me.

Goal:  Yes, I went through a lot of negativity.  I found a alight at the end of the tunnel, a light that engulfed my darkness.  Not that many people would be proud to say that they were bullied a lot.  I am one of those that are proud.  Proud that all those emotions made me into the person that I am today.  The theme is that we all need somebody to help us, and to motivate us.  The problem is we don’t even know where to look.  My realization came when I looked in the mirror.  I decided that if no one else would help me than I would myself.  Be that somebody for yourself.  Be that somebody for another person.  Above all Stay Strong.

  1. That is one of the most inspiring poems I’ve heard in a long time. You just expressed what I have been telling kids for such a long time. If you want to create better self image, its’ starts with believing in yourself. You are the master of your own destiny. That’s why I wrote my book.
