I stumbled across this poem/video on bullying recently. Although bullying was really the least of my problems, I found myself identifying with a lot of this - all the effects he describes are pretty much what I experienced because of the abuse. To be honest, it was quite triggering - had me in tears for about an hour after I first listened to it.

Anyway, because I think it is really good and because I love the positivity at the end, I want to share it here.

Lyrics here

Because -
we are graduating members from the class of
fuck off we made it
not the faded echoes of voices crying out
I guess what I'm trying to say
Is whose life is it anyway because livin'
Living is the best revenge
You can play
-- Def Leppard
