You are Just as Bad as Them

Whispers and Glares
Look back and Run
Down the hall to the left
And second door on the right.
You are just as bad as them.



I hoped to be treated fairly,
But I got quite the opposite.
You treated me worse,
I didn't think it possible.
You are just as bad as them.



A false rumor that circulated,
The biggest talk around.
It was last years talk,
But I was still judged.
You are just as bad as them.



Treatment unfair
Glare's and Attitude
All I wanted was to get through,
To get done with high school.
You are just as bad as them.



You judged me,
Before you even met me.
Yet you spoke of  "Antibullying"
In fact, you were on the school's committee.
You are just as bad as them.



You called me "Bully"
When I screamed for other to be silent.
For spreading the diesese,
For spreading my misery.
You are just as bad as them.



The more you talked,
The more you glared,
The smaller I felt,
The weaker I got.
You are just as bad as them.



I nearly broke,
You nearly destroyed me.
I didn't need a knife.
You cut me with your words.
You are just as bad as them.



By the end you are worse.
You degraded me,
You discriminated against me.
And still you called yourself my teacher.
You are just as bad as them.



Them are those who sent me here.
To a damned place called hell.
I still live in it, three years later.
All because you helped chain me there.
You are far worse than them.

This could not be truer. Three years ago a teacher helped spread a rumor that not only destroyed my reputation and sent me into a spiriling depression but masacured my home and school life. It still haunts me to this day. Bullying and harassment suck. Stop it if you can.
