Do you really think you’re tough? Do you like to pick on people smaller than you or do you do it because I’m quiet or different? Do you do it just to make me feel bad about myself?
You keep on doing it and you won’t quit. What did I ever do to you? I’m trying my best at school. I’m trying to fit in. All I want is to be liked. But you keep on embarrassing me. You make me feel ashamed to live.
What did I ever do to you? I want to be your friend but you choose to pick on me and beat me down. You continue to hurt my feelings. I lay awake at night crying… wondering what I’ve done to deserve this. Is it because I’m smarter than you? Is it because don’t have as much money as you do? Is it because I can’t defend myself?
I read about a kid that killed himself because he was bullied. He felt like the world hated him. It’s because of you that I feel like this. I’m so scared now. I don’t want to feel this way anymore. I feel like a complete failure… a loser. My parents try to talk to me about it but I’m ashamed to let them know that I’m the one that gets picked on. I don’t know what to do. I’m terrified, but I can’t do this anymore.
So this is my statement to you BULLY! I’m not going to let you do this anymore. I’m going to stand up for myself. I may not be able to fight back but I know something else I CAN do. I’m going to tell the teacher, the principle, your parents, my parents, and even the police! You keep telling me that if I tell on you, that makes me a coward. Untrue! Because the truth is…you’re the coward. You prey on the small, the weak and the vulnerable. You know what you deserve? A night in jail with criminals. Because that’s what you are. A criminal! You’re the coward! You’re the one that’s weak! And I won’t back down anymore! You will NEVER do this to me again. Because I’m brave, I’m strong, and I’m worthy. And when you get older, you probably WILL end up in jail. And me? I’ll be fine. I will have a future, a job, and a family. So who’s the loser now? You are! It’s damn true!!
