Down at ur feet,
Hands on my head,
Tears falling uncontrollably,
Why..why did this have 2 be?
How is it that kids are so mean?
We say sticks n stones break our bones,
But it's the words that hurt the most,
Still, why.. Why did this have 2 be?
Where were the teachers?
Where were the parents,
Were the signs flashing before everyone's eyes?
I ask u why...why did this have 2 be?
Is it really in our nature not 2 get involved,
When we see somebody hurting,
Do we just not care at all?
And how do we judge those,
That we won't take the time 2 get 2 know.....
While our community mourns him,
I call those those responsible 2 task,
Did u ever reach out a hand 2 him?
Did u take the time to ask.. R u okay?
I don't have words of comfort,
I'm angry as hell inside,
Are the bullies who caused this all,
Beaming inside with pride,
Are the teachers whispering how they should have done that or this?
And most of all,
I'm on my knees,
Asking with my heart clinched in my fist,
Tell me why....
Why did this have 2 be?
