Shy girl

Not an athlete
Can't compete
Feels incomplete
They know this
She shows it
They tease her
Are mean to her
She takes it
Her spirit is broken
No words are spoken
Silence is her action
They get satisfaction
By being mean
But not just her peers
Adults take their fare share
Of teasing and name calling
She sits alone bawling
Never feels good enough
She's got to learn to be tough
Mean girls don't get picked on
Every summer she vows
The meanness stops now
And every fall
She tries to stand tall
And face all the meanness
It'll take decades to conquer this
My struggle continues....
