I hate to see one cry over heartless words
The bullies dismayed the young men (the young women)
When I hear this (when I see this)
It splits my heart in two
One half is from sorrow that another person has caused
And the other half is what's left of me
But the solemn words you say don't affect me
It's the peace I see that will get to me

If you've come to tear me up, it isn't gonna work as well as you'd think
Take one more step towards me, I assure you I will turn around
Why should I go shout out loud anyways?
Unless you are not going to tear me up then I'll stay
I don't see the point of adding stress to those on the same ground

I won't be let down, I won't bow to stress
I'm not afraid to fade away from hate
Nor from all the stressful moments
But the depth of anything comes near
(I'll be able to avoid much damage)
However, to do all of that, I have to keep my
Temperature inside of me so I can help others
If you oppress another, the weight of the world is on you
And not me because I'm not the one who's doing anything mean
I'd rather show up peacefully instead of showing up uneasy

I can't help myself but to admit that I don't like to see anyone of any age
Tear themselves up because of the harmful words
I got to admit that I don't like watching this happen (where is hope?)
I don't want to see anyone tear themselves up because of the heartless words

If we, the peaceful ones, stand up now
We can be the ones who can win (even if it's hard for us all)
We can give them back the innocence they once had
They don't have to live all their life this way
None of us have to live like this anyways
If hate showed lethargy in the first place
Everyone would be in a peaceful world
But no, the amount of peace and hate
Back in the days lead to today's world we live in
Peace exists, don't get me wrong
We just didn't overtake the other side yet
I'm here trying to be more calm
Trying to help peace out instead of leaving one down
I tried to be a helping hand so they don't feel bad

Hey girl, you're not alone here
You don't have to hold the weight of the world alone
But I can't blame you if you want to pack your bags and run
At least know that you've got friends to help (you've got friendly strangers to help)
So grab my hand and we'll fight this together
Since you're here, let me say this
The words bullies make get you to shake
But don't let those words affect you
Because only you can make your future
The bullies can't tell who you are today or tomorrow
Keep in mind that they can't tell you who to become

Hey man, you're not alone here
You don't have to hold the weight of the world by yourself
I can't blame you if you want to pack your bags and run
At least know that you've got friends to help (you've got friendly strangers to help)
So grab my hand and we'll fight this together
Since your here, let me ask this
Why should their words hurt you as much as should?
But you know what, the words may get you to shake
But don't let them take your days
Because only you can make your future
The bullies can't tell who you are today or tomorrow
Keep in mind that they can't tell you who to become
If anything needs to be edited in this, please note me.

Very inspirational... I was bullied for a while while I was young, but I can't really remember much of how it made me felt now... I don't think it bothered me too much... I count myself lucky.
I was bullied a little bit half way through high school too, it was a bit worse because I was more self concious, but it still wasn't too bad.
It just makes me feel bad for the people get bullied to the point where they can't take it any more....
Anyway, a really good piece.. It's emotive, expressive and very well written. Great job!

Glad to hear it wasn't that bad for you. And I agree with you. It feels bad to be bullied and to see other being bullied.
And glad you think so. Thanks.

not the only answer you meant because peace doesn't cut it anymore, telling someone only make it worse, i'm at the point where that is one of my only solutions other than making an army or something like that to stop the army of bullies like 300 spartains

i preferred delivering my left-hook-from-hell. my justice was swift and absolute. then i ended up defending them from kids they used to bully.

This is amazing!.
I've been there.. Through all those.... But honestly if you can't stand up for yourself then it makes things more difficult....
It's best not to complain.. It's better to share to get rid of those burden..
Is being isolated better or being bullied?
