I thrive on others weaknesses – I hit them with a blow
I am fearless – my actions let them know.
When I am around – they tread on deadly ground.
I take the vulnerable apart – because I possess a careless heart.
I go around daily – insulting and out of control
I torment and disturb – the gentle type of soul.
I was not born this way – but circumstances dictated to me,
abused and abandoned – this is my way of breaking free.
I am a bully – my actions have decided
I go around defiant
I’m a broken giant
I’m anti – social compliant
suffering in silence.
