Defeated

Location

Cannot go any further, the pain hurts just so

For months and months, they taunted

Mocked and tortured the soul

Bullies amuck

Tearing apart the inner being

Making the darkness rain upon the earth

No joy or cheer

In the path of the bullied

Rampant hate spreads its web

Through the screen or through the people

Cannot go any further, the pain hurts just so

Yet where was the courage?

Among the students, there was none

No strength to defend the bullied

No boldness to stand for what is right

Of course, the bullied simply

Cannot go any further, the pain hurts just so

Perhaps thing would have been different

If others had taken a stand

For what is known to be right and true

A stand for the bullied, a stand for the mocked

If only they had not left the bullied, rather than the bully,

Be ultimately defeated
