My life hasn't always been easy as everyone thinks. People always say I have the perfect life and everything. No they are wrong what they don't see is the hurt that I felt from the 6th grade until now. My names Kaili and this is my story. It all started in the 6th grade I would get picked on and everything but it didn't bother me then. I knew it was normal for a teenager to be bullied at some point in their life. This continued and followed me all through middle school and I kept pushing it away like it was nothing. Then my 8th grade year I lost my support system. My grandmother had passed away on my birthday. I didn't know what to say. She was everything that had held me together. I mourned her death for years and still do but that's not the point. The point is I missed about a week of school and when I came back the bulling had gotten worse. I didn't know what to do. I was always hurting. This is about the time I started to write poetry. Not the sweet kind either. These were suicide poems. At first they were ok then they started to get worse as the bulling got worse. After a while though things got a little better I got my first real boyfriend and things were going back to normal and everyone thought I was a happy teenager again. They were wrong. I was still being bullied but I kept it bottled up inside. I didn't want people to know I was hurting, so I hid it from everyone. This only made things worse for me. I became more sensitive to the bullying. Finally, I reached my first breaking point I started to cut myself. They wouldn't be bad or noticeable but they were there. As the bullying got worse and the hurt I felt got worse though I started to cut more and more. Eventually my body was covered in scars. My parents found out but they didn't do anything about it. This is when I knew I was alone. I was alone in a world of hurt and had no where to go. This is when I turned into a bully. I started to pick on my best friend. Next thing I knew the bullying followed me everywhere I was no longer the bully, everyone around me was. Everyone turned on me and pushed me to the point to where I felt useless. Later I started to be cyber bullied. This was my limit I wrote a suicide letter and was ready to follow thorough with it, then something stopped me. To this day I don't know what it was. But I changed schools and things got better. There is hope. Don't give up and don't let it beat you down. Stand up for yourself and those around you.

She sat alone. Never talked. Only looked. Only imagined what could be, if she spoke a word. If she muttered a whisper of sound through those lips that were never loud. If she made an effort to get to know those around. Even though those around did not take the time to get to know her. She sat there and thought 'why me' as she walked through the halls of pain and sorrow. As she climbed and climbed, she was brought down time and time. She was of no family but that of an orphanage. She walked around with her head down upon the ground. She never looked at the faces of her doers. Those doers who brought blood to her tears. Those doers who brought the pain and sorrow to her halls. Those doers who pushed her down when she began to climb. Those doers who never knew the real soul. The soul that was burned many a times. That soul so pure, its only the purest because of it past. That past in which went unspoken as if a secret. That past that made the present and future a living nightmare. But those doers of her never know, that when she gave up, they killed the soul that would never be forgotten. That soul of hers still to this day is of importance as if to say, words hurt more that you know. Words hurt no matter how far they go. Words hurt the purest of souls. Written By: Jasmine Cole
