You see that kid over there?

His dad abandoned him when he was only five

, and his mom killed herself when he was just ten

Hes a foster child.

His foster parents beat him.

He smells like alcohol and weed

,and all you do is make fun of him.

You're a bully to this kid

, and you don't even know his story.

Before you say something like "fag" or "emo"

,because of the cuts down his wrist

try walking a day in his shoes.

Would you still be such a bully if you knew his harsh reality?

Take a stand put a end to bullying.
