Why... - Poem by Katherine Sessor

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
