A poem written by a victim of bullying

”WHY DO YOU LAUGH AT ME?”

 

Why do you laugh at me,

 And why do you make fun?

 I am an ordinary person,

 Just like everyone.

 

 Please tell me today,

 I would like to know,

 Why you point and stare,

 And make me your show?

 

 You laugh at me,

 Then call me names.

 Hurting me dearly,

 When you think it’s a game.

 

 But I can’t help it,

 It is who I am,

 I can’t ever be cured,

 medicine like that isn’t known to man.

 

 Stop for a minute,

 And recall what you said.

 All those poisonous words,

 You programmed into my head.

 

 Words can kill,

 More often than thought.

 And from those words,

 Grave actions are sought.

 

 When someone is different,

 Please let them be.

 For your unfortunate wish,

 Could cause their destiny.

 

 So I ask you again,

 Just one last time;

 

 Why do you laugh at me,

 And why do you make fun?

 I am an ordinary person,

 Just like everyone.
