She never was quite like them
She didn't quite fit in
She thought there was no way
To put her sadness to an end

They would laugh and whisper
Whenever she walked by
She acted like she didn't care
When she really wanted to cry

She tried to be strong
And hold her head up high
It was so very hard
She just wanted to die

She never understood
Why they hated her so
She wanted to run away
But she had nowhere to go

If they only knew
About all of her pain
Maybe they'd be nicer
And she could leave this cold rain

wow, this really hit me like a cannonball to the stomache. when i was in junior high, i knew a girl that everyone made fun of. they'd even throw rocks at her and put gum in her hair. when anyone tried to befriend her, everyone would treat them like they treated the girl. since i didn't want to be made fun of as bad as she was, i'd laugh at her when i was told to. just me laughing could put her into tears. i think she thought i was different, and i was for a while, but then the people at school started getting to me, and i couldn't take it. when i turned on her, she was really dissapointed, and i could see it in her eyes everytime i looked at her. if i could go back for just one day, i would be as nice to her as i possibly could. however, i can't turn back the clock, and i live thousands of miles away frome her now.
here's my advice:
IT REALLY DOESN'T MATTER WHAT PEOPLE THINK FOR ONE DAY, WEEK, MONTH, OR EVEN A YEAR OR TWO. ONE DAY, PEOPLE ARE GOING TO REALIZE HOW STRONG YOU WERE TO STAND UP FOR ONE PERSON, INSTEAD OF THINKING YOU WERE WEAK FOR JOING IN. I'M HERE TO TESTIFY THAT THE WEAK PEOPLE ARE THE ONES WHO GIVE INTO PEER PRESSURE, AND THE STRONG ONES, THE GREAT PEOPLE OF THE WORLD, ARE THE ONES WHO BEGAN IN JUNIOR HIGH- STANDING UP FOR THEMSELVES AND SOMEONE ELSE.

This poem really strikes a chord because I know people who act like the people in this poem. Maybe not quite as cruel, but hurtful just the same.
