A Poem

What do you call it 

When hurt fills your heart

Anger fills your soul

And you don't know what to do?

What about the times

When you're with lots of people 

But still feel alone?

How about when

Your "friends" only talk to you

When there's nobody else around?

And the feeling

When others are picked over you 

Until you're the last one standing

And you have no partner.

When you're not favored by many

When you're the last to be picked

When you have no partner

These are the times

You need to be the strongest.

You need to keep your head up.

You need to be independent.

These are the times

When your strength is tested.

So hold on,

And don't make a bad grade.
