I am the face in the crowd,
I am the lonely bystander,
I am the next one.
I am your victim
You are a tyrant,
You are a monster.
You are a thug,
You are a bully.
You always mocked me for I was different,
You always attacked me for I was weak,
You always made names at me for I was sad.
You never stopped.
I always ran, full of fear,
I tried to keep all I held dear.
I never could stay,
You took it all away
I could have been a doctor, a scientist, a politician.
I could have done great things.
I could have been rich, famous or helped others,
But you took my chance, my learning, my friends.
When they walked,
I went down to the river,
The water was cold but I was told about peace,
The peace of the grave and that gave me hope, just a sliver.
But when they fished me out,
I finally felt warmth,
And now I am the winner,
You've lost and been found, sinner.
My friends are back, I'm liked again,
I no longer feel your sting, your pain.
I am the victor you see,
Those full of hat
