The words never spoken,
Yet always heard.
Not from people around me,
No, that's absurd.

I've heard these words,
Time after time,
They always pierce my heart,
They continuously cross my mind.

But these words were never said.
Never once directed at me.
Maybe they never became reality,
But I saw them spoken in my mentality.

These are the words of a bully.
The words that can tear me apart.
The words that can no longer be erased,
Because they have entered my heart.

This person who speaks them,
I know them quite well.
They have countless words in their head,
They have many stories to tell.

I don't know why they want me
To take all of the blame.
It might be for vengeance,
It might be from their own shame.

But the owner of these words,
The words that repeat,
Have caused me great fear,
Have led to my defeat.

This person I know,
Whom I don't like to show,
Has never left my side,
Never will leave my mind.

This bully,
You see,
Is actually me.
We like to beat ourselves up,
don't we?
It's still too hard though...

Unless given permission to do so...

Yeah. When I get down, I tell myself that even though the "thing" (whatever it may be) seems really depressing, the next day is most likely going to be better. A good friend once told me: Weeping may continue (or come, can't remember) into the night, but joy comes in the morning. Thanks, you just made me feel better!;D

Yep. It is hard. I did this to myself everyday when I was in school. I still do sometimes. But, then I catch myself. And I'm like, 'Seriously? You are strong and beautiful woman that has overcome all of this.' I had to deal with bullying in school from others. And I believed them to be right. But, every time I did something good, I remembered it, and cherished it. And I used it as a reminder that I am not what they say I am. I am better than what they say I am. Yes, their words were hurtful. But, I knew they were hurting on the inside about something as well, so they lashed out at others. Eventually, What they said didn't nearly hurt as much. I brushed it off, like dust on my shoulder. After that, I didn't care what people thought of me. Because, they didn't know me. They didn't know that I am very caring for others, even if they are the ones who bully me I would show them the kindness they wouldn't show me. They would be dumbfounded, and walk away.

Bullying needs to stop. Even if it is us bullying ourselves or others that are bullying other people.

Thank you for your poem. The world should read this poem. I believe it could open eyes.

I'm glad that my poem has been able to reach the hearts of many.
It is true, the sadness that enters others and ourselves is quite difficult to get rid of, and even harder to reach happiness once we've lived thinking in such a negative manner for so long.
I wish that the world could read my poem as well, for them all to know that they are not alone.
