Why do you hate me?

Why must you bring pain to me?
Why must you humiliate me,
especially in front of my friends?
Why do you do these things to me?
What is the significance of being a bully?
Does this bring joy to you?
Why do you call me names?
Why do you state untrue facts about me?
Why do you make fun of my family?
Why do you hate me?
What did I ever do to you?
I don't like being hurt.
School is supposed to be a place to feel safe.
So, why don't I?

The author's comments:
This is about the times when I was verbally humiliated at school.

Nice job. I think you could have re-phrased a few things to make the poem a bit stronger in the message you were trying to get across, but overall, I loved it. Keep writing!

Please check out some of my work if you get a spare minute. Feedback always means a lot to me.

If this is one of your first pieces of writing, I can't wait to see what the rest will look like!

No grammar or spelling errors of any kind, a clear message with just as clear wording, and a no nonsense tone to it.

You have a good poem here GoGreenGirl!

Life is so ironic to understand fully, it takes sadness to know what is happiness. noise to distinguish silent and a broken heart to find true love.

Aww...I really like it. I can feel your emotions. Keep writing you show a lot of potential!!!
