At school today
I learnt a lot
Of hard and complex words.

Like Math and Science,
and literature,
Will sit with me at lunch.

I pass my tests
I’m pretty nice
Yet still don’t understand
Why I’m the constant
victim of
their cold and cruel words.

I try my best
to act so tough
but it’s like they also know
as soon as I
walk out the door,

I’ll go and cry at home.
