Bullying happens because bullies want to feel better about themselves os they feel insecure and want others to feel the same way. According to nobullying.org, the way you know if someone is a bully is when they call others names, leave them out of activities, take or damage their things, threaten them, kick or hit them, and make them do things they don’t want to do. Bullies also can have problems themselves like getting abused at home or think that they are stronger then others. There are many types of bullying.

9: As I walk to school everyday I always feel ashamed My body always feel like Thunder and rain because Of the games they played Kids always tease me, Sometimes I think to myself Why does it have to happen to me? Why don’t bullies take a day In my shoes To feel the pain and Understand how much damage They have done to a person Sometimes in class I feel Like I am trapped in a dark tunnel With no one to talk to Or look up to I feel so ashamed Different emotions go in And out of my head Sometimes I feel like dying But life is too short to worry about What others think So I just keep my head held High But I still feel so ashamed | Poem
