It takes being the jinxed or an outcast
To understand what hiding in plain sight
Means, even with Sun there is an overcast.
Why is his own opinion never right?
No one cares until you've rounded third-base
Or you’re dying, wait why are they crying?
How many more ugly words will we have to take?
Course those words hurt, what were you implying
Words of warning we couldn't have been primed
Bullying shouldn't be used for others' clarity
So next time before you speak keep in mind
A bullet is cheaper than therapy,
Remember don't blame the shaken finger,
It's always the thought behind the trigger.
Some of my friends said this made them cry and others didn't know what I meant. I think now a days people tend to over-analyze too much or try too hard to understand poetry. On that note I'll let you all decide for yourselves what this poem means.
Hope all is well,
