Katherine Sessor

(March 14,1990 / Virginia)


Why is this happening to me
What did I do wrong
Why don't they let me be
They've been hurting me for so long

Why do they hate me so
I did nothing to them
Why do they go so low
To make me feel so grim

How to get out of this
Just tell me what I should do
Is it true that ignorance is bliss
Someone please give me a clue

They act so big and bad
Making me feel so small
Then they get so mad
When I try to ignore them all

When I try to stand my ground
And start to fight back
They swarm all around
Making my world go black

I just don't see why
Why they have to be so mean
Tormenting a person until they want to die
When the person doesn't want to make a scene

Why don't they leave me alone
Why do their words sink in so deep
I just want to go home
And cry in my sleep

Poem of the Day

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
