Bullies Beware

They said that I'm ugly.
That my parents didnt care.
They said that I was fat,
And laughed when my brothers were no longer there.
They said that I smelled,
They laughed because the lies stayed the same.

But.
Look.
At.
Me.
Now.

Because everything has changed.

I am beautiful.
I have friends galore.
My life, it loves me.

Because I refused to shut my door...

They,
I don't know where they are...

And honestly,
I don't really care.

Truly I do forgive them.

But bullies beware.

Because I have made a vow.

To.
Help.
Make.
Others.
Lives.
Change.

And if you agree.

Speak up.
Step out.

Let everyone see.

That you are not afraid
Of somebody

Who is simply afraid of

Themselves.
