The Monster that Lived Within Her-- What Would You Change Scholarship Slam

It fed on the opinions of others

It became alive that day in middle school, 

when a boy called her a mean name

He did not know then that she was already ashamed

of who she was and who she had been

 

As more children joined the feast began

oblivious to the cause 

She being eaten alive from the outside in 

and then the inside out as these names swarmed like bees

her friends joined in on the fun 

and soon she was to be done

 

be careful what you say,

you might just save a life.
