Bruised, beaten, broken.

What is one to do?

When the world is spiraling out of control,

Sometimes all you have is you.

.

And it doesn't end.

.

Those hurtful voices that you hear in your head,

They won't ever go away.

And though the words were spoken long ago,

They're still ringing in your ears today.

.

It's not going to end.

.

Why must you remember?

It's just so hard to forget.

Why can't you just accept that it's over,

And just get over it?

.

You can't get over it.

.

What other people just don't understand,

Is that you still remember.

You still hear every word, every phrase, every voice,

And it doesn't get any better.

.

It will follow you forever.

.

After all the bullying,

After the hurtful words are over,

It still stays with the victim,

And it will stay forever.

.

Bullying is forever.
