You hit me.
You hate me.
You label me.
You judge me.
You reject me.
You blame me.
You laugh at me.
You criticise me.
You threaten me.
You try to guilt me.
You call me names.
You tell me I’m wrong.
You try to manipulate me.
You refuse to apologize to me.
You try to make me responsible.
But you can’t stop me from being me.
Be who you are and not the fabrication everyone expects. Truly a beautiful message that is hard to follow outside the screen this is read on.
Recited this to a bully, he never bullied again
This reminds me of someone from my school.
We never liked me since I met her. She would judge me all the time. For example, she would make fun of my jugular vein in my neck pulsing out and mimic my cough (I was in CHF). Then she tells lies about my friends and I caught her in them, then she'll start saying how I bring people down, that I am not religious like she is, etc. It goes on and on. This is why I love this poem.
Thank you! Please keep doing what you love, even when people discourage you. That girl I told you about would steal my artwork and when she requested a piece of my work she would scream at my face saying it wasn't what she wanted and threw it away.
Thank you so much! Keep writing poems like these. They are really well written!
Also, she never thinks nothing is her fault and it's always mine.
Beautiful.......and so true. You made my day.
Love. It. A ton.
This is awesome. Thank you for sharing it.
Yay, a piece of writing that I can relate to. Great job.
Oh my God, yes! Finally, someone who believes this as much as I do! To the favorites! A lot of people really need to see this, and I thank for putting down what I would always wish I could say.
*Blush* Thank you very much for reading this.
I love it. It's simple, but really effective
This is perfect omg
amen, I'm sure i'm not the only one who can relate to this poem.
The all caps title was kind of a turnoff, but otherwise a good poem. Also, did I use turnoff in the correct context?
This deserves all of the praise it has gotten and more. Don't stop being you.
I like it. The message is straight-forward. Good job. C:
