What I do when someone calls me stupid
First of all I know they're wrong,
then I find that place inside where I am strong
I walk away with my head held tall
till I find someone that I can call
Poems about me, about you, about everyone in the class.
Poems about friendship, playing games, teachers, bullying, jealousy, quarrels and secrets
