Here comes the ugly one
Looking sad and wearing black those stupid preps all laugh because she looks fat
Trying to ignore the comments she walks looking at the floor since she doesn't say a word
They shout more ugly words The jocks throw there footballs at her and the anorexic sluts just laugh she's teased in Science P.E and even Math everyday the same routine she runs into her room and cries.
She thinks that no one cares If she just curled up and died she grabbed some lipstick and put it on her lips she grabbed her long black skirt and then started to rip .
At the corner of her eye she spotted a pointy blade she slashed her wrists until her vision started to fade suddenley she fell collapsing on a towel and as she was dying she looked up at the doctor and said "AM I PRETTY NOW!"
