Unkindness

Unkindness

A Poem by Annabelle Lee

I'm sitting on the floor
But you should know, you put me there
Crying eyes bloodshot and sore
What you're doing isn't fair

Run to my bedroom at the end of the day
Shut the door and belt it out
On my own and unafraid
I'm free to sing out loud

I sit alone in the back of the room
Won't even raise my hand
I'll be out of here real soon
I won't have to be afraid again

Slammed my head into the wall
Screamed at me, called me f****t
Lock myself in the bathroom stall
Wondering where's my pride or if I ever had it

Baggy sweatshirts to hide the bump
Make no eye contact with anyone
It's too big to cover up
I'm scared and all alone

Long sleeves and bracelets hide the scars
My friends can never see
I can't let my personal issues mar
Their opinions of me

Run to the bathroom after lunch
I can't help it anymore
Time to throw everything up
Pray nobody walks through that door

Cover up all of the bruises
Paint a smile on my face
Go ahead and make excuses
Daddy's stressed from working all day...

The human race is so unkind
Even after adolescence
But this is often the first time
Unkindness is really present

I remember being bullied in high school and when I told a teacher about it, all they did was make the person say sorry to me. But what teachers don't realize is that bullying is a serious issue and can make people self-harm or want to die, or maybe they don't care... I empathize with you on the emotions in this poem

Annabelle, you are so talented! You have a voice. Not a copy-cat voice, where somebody tries to make their poems like somebody else's, but your own unique voice. I've really been enjoying reading your poetry! and I look forward to reading more of it! :)

Now, for the poem.
This was amazing. I really liked your rhyming scheme. And the words are so relateable.
Great Write! :)

There is always strength in your poetry no matter what you write about Annabelle, sounds like you've gotten yourself into a bit of a pickle here, unkindness is the harshest cut of all especially when in need of the total opposite, those times seem to be the worst of all, a little compassion goes a long way.
