Trapped
Chris, Age 14, Galena, MO

Trapped.
No way out.
Scared.
Scared to run.
Scared to be still, to go home.
Angry.
Angry at the world.
Angry at everyone, no one understands.
Parents always fighting.
Bullies picking on you.
No were to go.
School’s not safe.
Home is a bickering mess.
Have to make everything safe.
Have to make the bullies go away.
Have to act now.

They meet you in the hallway.
This is the moment.
This is your time to shine.
You swing. Victory.
What happens next?
Will more come at you? Yes.
Will you be ready? Yes.
Are you scared? No.
Just remember one thing.
You may have won the battle
but the war is far from over.
