Stand Up - It Was A Mistake Series

18 2 0

A small comment,
written on the bathroom stall,
A snarky insult,
spoken in the school hall.

You don't know what to do
So all you do is ball up,
and the words scroll through your mind
like a song left on repeat.

Push it aside,
bounce it off your strength.
You're stronger than that,
You're stronger than them.

Stand up,
wipe those tears away.
Walk down the hall
with a smile on your face.

Fake that confidence,
fake it 'til it's real.
You're a rockstar,
exactly like you are.

Their insecurities,
aren't your problem now.
You're beautiful,
you're unique just like yourself.

So stand up,
wipe those tears away.
Walk down the hall
with a grin on your face.

Fake that confidence,
fake it 'til it's real
I'm stronger than that,
I'm stronger than them.

Those comments don't bother me now.
It's just an empty bathroom stall,
It's just an empty school hall.

The words shred through my mind,
gone as fast as they came.
