Oh I don't care what they say
I'm as deep as the next girl you see
And if they choose to judge and rage
Then they must be filled with envy
Oh I don't see what they mean
By saying I am far too cruel
Those kids they deserve these insults
After all this is just high school
Oh I don't know what to wear
And though I know it all looks great
I call myself fat. Annorexia's passe
I go and throw up what I just ate
Oh I'm not scared of school shootings
Besides I'm as pious as can be
And if they point a gun in my face
How dare they kill something so pretty
Oh and I suppose that it could happen
And stranger things could happen still
But I have a thought (imagine that)
What inspires such losers to want to kill
Oh and I've said some trifling things
Shoved an ugly girl or two
But this hideous face I don't remember
Please tell me what I did to you
Oh and I see that I'm going to die
You think I deserve this violent end
But I so want to leave a pretty corpse
So shoot me someplace it won't offend

I hope that this doesn't upset anyone or make them think that I want to kill anyone. Far from it. This is just my take on a lot of school violence and the other side of it. I think that a lot of the kids who do stuff like that had to put up with a lot of stuff from their classmates. I IN NO WAY CONDONE THEIR ACTIONS. But I wanted to write something to repersent that.

This is a very strong subjected poem...amazing what concerns our youth of today, they don't fear death, only sometimes life

The content of the poem is important but just as important is the way it's being said.
And you have said it very well indeed.
