I wrote this piece for a friend at school who really needed to know that i would always be there for them. They have been bullied for their looks, but they are a good person. I have been bullied for hanging out with this person. I hope this poem will help others to be able to not just be a bystander by to stand up and say something

I am not a bystander

I am a strong young woman who won't be underestimated 
I wonder when the cruelness will stop 
I see it happen all around me 
I want to help them 
I am a strong young woman who won't be underestimated 

I pretend the cruelness stops 
I feel the cruel vibrations of their words 
I worry for them 
I touch their shoulder 
I cry with them 
I am a strong young woman who won't be underestimated 

I understand how they feel 
I say "Lets go tell an adult" 
I dream of a better tomorrow 
I'm going to make sure the bullying will stop 
I am a strong young woman who won't be underestimated
