Broken Communication

“I think that social media has really empowered bullies because you get to do it from the comfort of your own home, completely anonymous, with no ramifications.” – Maysoon Zayid

You tell me to leave

I have a right to be here

You tell me I am unwanted

Others may feel different

You talk like I am in the wrong

When all I did was express an opinion

You talk like I am an idiot

When I just pointed out a fact

You say I’m uneducated

Maybe I made a mistake

You say I’m ugly

I am no pageant queen

You called me stupid

I didn’t do the best in school

You called me a fat ass

I am over weight





Waste of space…

Maybe you can shame me into silence

But I will be damned if you will break my spirit
