    they called him ugly

    all through school

    they called him things

    so they would look cool

    they never thought about it

    as they laughed and poked

    they never thought about it

    'til the last time he spoke

    he spoke to them then,

    with words so true

    he asked them softly

    "what did i do to you?"

    they stopped laughing then

    just stared and looked around

    as the gun went to his head,

    and his body to the ground

    sorry about how sad this is I'm just so tired of kids bullying kids and the best way I know how to express it is in a flow... much luv

    Hi Serenti,

    Your poem makes me think!! I was teased in school as well. I was a chubby kid. Often, I wanted to lash out!! Instead I starting writing. I guess I should thank them!

    Thank you for this one. Very good piece!!
