A poem about a teen being bullied at school

please, she implores, let me be invisible,
is her daily mantra,
she prays she will go unnoticed by the bullies;
their cruel words and actions
pierce her soul with a poisonous lance
meant to annihilate.

she hates Them,
she hates herself.

she sits alone in the cafeteria,
whether it be her hair, her attire, what she eats,
They loudly ridicule, curse and call her names,
accompanied with subtle physical torments,
pushing, tripping, pulling hair,
always in front of a titillated audience.

she hates Them.
she hates herself more.

when not being followed,
she escapes into the girls’ bathroom
to stare at her reflection in the mirror.
They have altered her appearance
to one she utterly loathes.
hypnotized, she stares, until pushed aside.

she hates Them.
she hates herself the most.

she walks home alone,
friendless, hopeless, forlorn,
yearning to be free from her pain.
in her room, she opens her closet door,
she tightens a belt around her neck...
the young teen hangs herself.

She no longer hates them...
She no longer hates herself the most...
