Standing Up For Yourself


I put make up on to see a new me
Knowing deep down that no one is ugly
People say its easy to ignore what the bullies say
But those words still taunt me to do this day
Good
I remember trying to keep the tears locked inside
Standing up to them is something i tried
I was like no one else
occasionally l was by myself
Happily reading a few books
Taking no notice of the strange looks
Standing up for yourself


I learned to stand up to them on my own
And soon i had the confidence and hadn't spent another week reading alone
If you stand up for what is right
The future will be happy and bright
