Standing Alone

When I was a boy

sometime ago

I faced a problem

and wanted to let go.

I felt scared

but wasn't sure where

and I was not strong.

I had little courage

to stand up against fear because I could hear

the bully was coming near.

He had always threatened me

took jabs and stepped on me

and I just let it happen,

until I heard Eminem rappin

He said "you only got one shot,

do not miss your chance to blow"

This is when I would glow up

to take a stand and grow up

to be the man I knew I could be.

The next day at school I went to the bully

and told him you could hurt me but now I have confidence.

That even if you try to touch me

I will show you that you are unworthy.

Being nice is better so

lets squash the beef together

and I will be your friend.

Together we won't be lonely 

but happy and fully

living life the way it ought to be done.
