"Your words have power, use them wisely"
“No matter how many good qualities someone has, people will still manage to only notice the negative.”
They tear you apart,
they get in your head,
they shatter your heart,
they make you feel dead.
They somehow get deep,
way into your mind,
secrets they won’t keep,
and more they will find.
They share them with friends,
so people can hear,
your rumor is out,
and so is your fear.
They ruin it all,
your life they could end,
too strong and too tall,
for you to defend.
They punch and they kick,
their words oh so strong,
they are just so sick,
they are just so wrong.
They do have a lot,
and they are really smart,
But they don’t have one thing,
and that’s a good heart.

No one accepted him, he had no where to turn to,
He left a letter on the table, it showed everyone he was through”
