Who is the bully?

Location

Who is the bully?
that walks the halls
all big and bad
can you really tell
that his world is upside down
that his parents have disappeared 

Who is the nerd?
that walks the halls
so sad and alone
can you really tell
that his world is upside down
that his mother has cancer

Who is the cheerleader?
that walks the halls
careful to hide behind a smile
can you really tell
that her world is upside down
that she has aids

Who is the teacher?
that walks the halls
never teaching never there
can you really tell
that her world is upside down
that her husband died in war

Who are they?
Are they even there?
What happened to them?
Where will they go?

For I may know
the bully is facing life
the nerds mom is one life support
the cheerleader has 3 months to live
the teacher plans to never live again

The world is sad
for non of them deserve 
the life that has been given
but each is strong in their own way
