Stop looking at me like it’s my fault, and making those boys look at me like a slut.
Stop saying ‘hi’ in hallways like a pitiful fool, and intimidating me by breathing down my neck.
I’m so sick, I almost fainted five times today. My head hurts, my heart hurts, and I’m so tired.
I cry myself to sleep, if I sleep at all. Replaying–and replaying the words like a cd.
I need to run away from this place.
In the shower, I scratched myself until I bled, because the pain is unbearable inside.
If I could flee your eyes, and the terrible lies you’re telling everyone about me; maybe I could start to focus on my own problems.
Play the victim card like the coward you are.
See, if I care.
I will rise above this.
I will survive this.
I am a warrior, but I think you know that.
But you never expected to wage my war on you….
