Whatís the use?
How do you excel by
lowering someoneís self-esteem, by simply being mean?
They put on a fake smile pretending to be okay,
believing it will all go away.
Itís not just the punching and hitting. Words hurt.
Fat, ugly, stupid, worthless. To some it means
nothing but to others it can truly damage.
People join in, thinking itís fun while not knowing
the pain they give to everyone.
All they want is a true
friend as you make their lives want to end.
Thinking itís cool but really just being cruel.
Bullying is not okay. We need to make it go away.
