School Yard Bullies

Excellence In Writing Award in the 'Dream Big 2013' competition
It gets so hard, in the school yard
It’s so rough; I try my best to be tough
I don’t fit in, how could that be?
When all I do, is try to be me.
I am who I am, I do what I do.
I might not look the same as you.
It’s just not fair, does anyone even care?
One day I will no longer fear
There will not be a single tear
They will know that they are wrong
The day will come when I am strong
We’re all different and that’s O.K.
We’re not going to run, we’re here to stay
We have a choice
We will use our voice
We do care and it’s not fair!
