              THE BULLIE 

Why are you always laughing at me 
Why do you call me names
Just because I'm so different from you,  for you to drive me insane 
hurting my  brain 

It saw an introverted me, closed up 
I felt alone all through  my secondary school
It made me stronger in later life, no one now treats me like a fool

It does hurt,  it still hurts at times 
bullies leave scars,  permanent ones a memory it pops in ones my mind 

I was the new girl yes, i was all in black, i 
didn't fit in with the bullies persona, pretty girl yes, the prom queen, very popular ( couldn't do no wrong )

From the moment I walked in the main school door 
I was seen as an inanimate object, another victim they where waiting for 

It left a scar,  cut me deep memories that i would rather of left behind 
It's permanently etched into my mind

I've tried councillors,  so many groups I knew so many were in the same position
I cried so many tears it's been ten years I remember still  with a passion 
I have to keep strong I had to take action 

I have to face  my demons no more would i let it show
Still I am that little girl inside I have to
Let go

To face, to conquer, to talk control of what once was before
Is the only way to move forward 
To unlock that door

To open up, to face ones fears when bullied this one has to do
If you face up to all and show
others how  they can be to

Yes this is easier said than done
Because the bully is usually one tough son of a gun

Try standing  up to them they have something to hide
bullies have there own insecurities deep inside 

Thats why this is the path that they choose 
But face up to them surely they will lose

Be  positive, never back down don't give in to this yes easier said than done 
Because a bully is only a bully if you let him be one
