It all started when I was in the first grade! I went to school with a neighbor that started talking about me shortly after starting! Throughout the years it became worse! Well everyday on my way to catch the bus I would have to hide in some bushes to wait for the bus because every time the other kids saw me, they beat on me! In the afternoons I would sit up front so I could be the first one off to get a head start running home! During the summers they would gather together and come to my house to steadily harass me and beat me up given the chance! One time they rang the doorbell and when my brother opened the door they busted in and beat me! Others was a girl that knocked on my door, introducing herself ame asked if i wanted to come out! Thinking I might have a new friend I walked outside and she, to my surprise, hit me square in the face! We fought and I messed her up pretty bad! Her dad told me to apologize to her so I did and we started talking! I asked her why!!! She said her two aunts told her to do it cause they didn't like me! Well the stories go on and on but my status today, I am 42 years old and just got my GED 2 years ago! I'm now a motivational speaker for troubled teens and for the students in GED classes! I am now a published poet and just started putting music to my poetry! My first song is named Bullies & Authorities and is on YouTube! I started writing in 1985 because it was the only way I could get my feelings out! I didn't have parents around to help! My mother was always gone and when I tried talking to her she blamed me, saying if I didn't say something to upset them then they wouldn't be picking on me So writing and singing became my way of dealing with it!!!
