Am I human?

They hurl stones at me,

stones of hatred,

I just can’t ignore them,

I feel faded.

They would spill dirt on my name,

make me seem wrong,

make it seem as if I come from hell,

Is that where I belong?

Words out their mouth,

hurt my heart,

I guess they are just below me,

and less smart.

Sometimes I feel irrelevant,

and unrecognised as well,

sometimes I want to scream,

and loudly yell.

I want them to feel my silence,

as loud as a scream,

I want to make them realise,

that I have a right to dream.

I know they can’t reach higher than me,

by pushing me down,

I also know that they put themselves down,

when they try to make me drown.

I don’t know how to tackle them,

like every day, I walk away,

towards a road of solitude-my mind,

which treats me like a prey.

Thousands of kids today are prey to bullying.

When someone throws stones at you, pick them up and build a wall between their jealousy and your perfection…

Hi! I am a 13-year-old currently studying in the Netherlands. For 5 years, I was studying in London and moved to India for some time in July 2019. First of all, I love playing the western flute and have been playing for quite a few years now. Playing and also, listening to music is definitely my passion. Some sports I enjoy playing are badminton, netball, swimming, football, cricket (these are the top 5!). Ok, so let’s talk about poetry. I wrote my first poem in a primary school in England and this inspired me to start writing poems on WordPress. Some of my recent poems are about global issues such as climate change, depression, bullying etc. Writing poetry is another passion of mine…so, check out my poems on WordPress. I don’t know what else I could say here so, hope you love my poems…..happy reading!!

  1. A normal condition often faced by many as people around us feel more happy in critcizing and pin pointing at everything. It’s better to ignore and move on… I think when people throw stones at me, I collect them and make stair-case to rise and move forward…

    Great piece of work… Liked the way you have beautifully expressed it… Well done… 🙂
