Nothing Can Save You

“Nothing Can Save You”

You walk alone

With your head down

Holding your books close

They point and laugh at you

You stare back

Tears start to well in your eye

As you begin to walk faster

You feel hot all over

As embarrassment consumes you

You wish you were invisible

As the tears start to escape

They trickle down your face

All you want to do is escape

This place that is suppose to be safe

Who are they to judge you

Have they even said “hello” to you

Nothing can save you

From the cruelty and hostility of others
