Through the Eyes of A Child

It’s not fair But then it never is All the teachers All the learning that they got It couldn't prepare them Could it? It couldn't stop it Or halt it Or even control it? The whirlwind that is I All the promises and All the lies It was all too much It was never enough I tried They didn’t The whispers behind my back The taunts, and jeers; Even the teachers Who are supposed to protect and keep order; Just walk away Just ignore her She’ll go away Yes Mrs. Mother Well stop it Don’t worry Freak Vampire Weirdo She has coodies She’s creepy No one likes you Go away No one wants’ to play with a lesbian like you It would be so much better if she were gone I wish she would just leave forever Would it? Could it? Was it? I left I hide I never showed my face But you still; What did I ever do to you? What could I have done to you? I was only ten Just barely out of childhood really But I can't really blame you...can i? No I can't My only option left Was silence Did it make you happy? Did you smile? Was all that work All that cruelty All that heartache; Was it worth it? Did it finally make you feel better? Like you were better, More powerful? Who was your next victim? Never mind. Not like it matters They didn't help them either I suppose You can't see You refuse to see Just like the teachers They all failed Not only me But you And Every Other Child That Was Forgotten, Lost, And Alone. I hope you all are proud.
