For years have been bullied. Believe it or not I was bullied in pre-school by a girl who used to steal toys from me. Elementary school was bad too. I was called fat,weird. Guys would come up to me and tell me that no guy would ever like me. This kid used to kick me in the back and punch me. Then came middle school The chance to start over. Not completely. I had a crush on this guy. I thought he could be different. But he wasn't. Sixth grade he told everyone I was going around saying I knew him so well. All I ever said was I liked him. He called me fat and ugly and a no way girlfriend. Then in seventh grade he told everyone I stalked him and I was just trying to be cool. Kids would come up to me and ask me why I liked him and would tell me I should know he'd never go out with me. A girl who was suppose to be friend got new friends and they told her I was lying about things too. I've known her since kindergarten. Then she left me. Now I'm in eighth grade and it still goes on but as bad to me. I cut my hair. It's long but I have bangs in the front like Justin Bieber. Every said I was just trying to copy him and that I'm gay. I have no problems with people like that. But, I'm not gay. They told Me I was going to hell because I listen to metal, rock n roll, scene , screamo or what ever you want to call it music. Also because I dress different. But, I have found some friends who are looked down on too. We have so much fun together. I really don't understand why I put up with it for so long. Now all I do is try to speak up and help others. I hold my head high. I know I'm better than what they say. My voice has been heard by so many people and I will continue to speak it. I believe that if you believe in what you love , yourself and your dream , there isn't anything you can't do. I will fight against this world. I am a rebel. ~Mercedes Compton
