Just one word.
That's all it takes.
Continued by many.
Followed by pushing.
We wish it will stop.
We try hard to be strong.
To deal with it on our own.
But when we try and ask for help, we get put down and told to 'get over it'.
It's not just physical, it's not just emotional.
It attacks our confidence.
And shatters our Esteem.
It threatens our well-being as we dream.
That maybe, just maybe we'll be treated like everyone else. To feel what it's like to not fear of being hurt.
To those who bully; to those who judge.
Put on the shoes of someone who you have hurt and,
Walk a mile where they have walked.
Feel the feelings that they have felt.
So, do yourself a favor.
Think before you speak.
Think before you do.
'Cause you never know; the victim could someday be you.
Then you will realize that your words nor your actions were ever that cool.
