The Wound That Never Heals


Thankfully I was never bullied at school but for this poem I tried to put myself in the shoes of someone who was. Bullying hurts and leaves a permanent scar!

Laughed at, taunted, left all alone,
You tell me to drop down dead on my own,
You make remarks on the way that I look,
You don’t realise the effort it took,
My mother to feed and clothe me today,
When I walk nearby you all walk away,
You make it clear, the message you send,
Nobody wants to be my friend.
You push me over then start to laugh,
You say that I smell and should take a bath,
You tell me I’m worthless and nobody cares,
It makes me wish that I wasn’t there.
I find it difficult to read and write,
I try to pretend that I’m alright,
You make me so nervous I physically shake,
You all gather round as my lunch you take.
You’re all in your “gangs” and you can all see,
How much your rejection is hurting me,
The bell rings at the end of the day,
I put on my coat and run all the way,
Home, I hate this place called school,
Always terrified, always the fool,
There’s not much more that I can stand,
I’ll be okay, I’ve made a plan,
No longer will I feel such strife,
Tomorrow I’m going to end my life.
If I don’t this hate will follow me through,
My whole life I’ll be thinking of you,
The way that you’ve made me hate myself,
I wish that I could be anywhere else,
Forever this pain I’m going to feel,
Forever a wound that will never heal.
