I've seen a lot lately regarding awareness against bullying, and I think it's absolutely great. I used to be bullied a lot when I was younger, and it was really hard. It eased up once I got to high school, and around sophomore year (I'm a senior right now) I learned how to stand up for myself. This is my song on my experiences, and I want others to know that it WILL get better. It won't be this way forever, and even if you are too afraid to stand up for yourself, it will get better, I promise. :)

Sticks and Stones by Amanda McCarthy (c) 2011

All I ever wanted was just to be accepted
But now I'm in the corner, I've only been rejected
You think you're so above me, I'm looking up but all I see
Is the world where I would rather be
And every hurtful word you say makes me wish more and more
You hadn't closed the door on me
And my chance of being something
I'm tired of being nothing
You don't need to explain why you're better than me
When I look in the mirror I already see
You've been telling me now for years and years
But you don't know how many tears I've cried
How bad I've wanted to hide
Wanted to curl up in a ball and die
Whoever said sticks and stones are the worst
I'm telling you, you don't know what I've been through
I wanted to be like you, but there was nothing I could do
It was out of my control to change your mind
You made me feel so low, you had no problem letting me know
I was still below no matter how I tried
My clothes were never cool enough, my hair was never straight enough
For you I knew I'd never be good enough
I'm reaching out for something, 'cause you've left me with nothing
My friends tell me I'm beautiful but I just won't believe
And I walk around the hallway with my heart on my sleeve
You can't take back the words you said
Forever floating in my head
But you have given me something
I won't let you tell me nothing
(Chorus 2x)
I'm telling you, you don't know what I've been through
