Poetry

Fight

Never show the pain.
Keep walking.
You’re alive.
Words don’t hurt.

(They do. A lot, but you’re not supposed to know that.)

You are stronger than them.
They are in the wrong
but not enough for
anyone to do anything.
Don’t sink to their level.

(It’s not really sinking. It’s more like switching paths.)

Violence solves nothing.
You cannot stop them,
so do not try.
No one will believe you.

(They won’t, but it hurts knowing that no one does. It’s like no one cares.)

Wounded animals get shot.
Be a doormat.
No one thinks about hurting doormats.

(They don’t really care. You are a wounded animal, hurt and vicious.)

Keep a stiff upper lip.
One day they'll get tired.
Fighting is entertaining them.

(That is a blatant lie. They never stop.)

Violence puts you on their level.
Acting out will help nothing.

(Actually, it helped everything. No one wants to get near a wounded animal.)

Stop caring about how they feel.
They stopped caring about you long ago.
You are not a doormat.
You are a wolf, wounded and vicious.

(You don’t need to be a good little girl. Being that made you hurt and turned you cold.)
