By MandaI walk in and everyone starts to stop and stare,I start to feel awkward and just run to my chair,I stay quiet like I've done something wrong,=bull.jpgand bury my head cos I've got to be strong,I look up from my work, it's all started again,The giggles and whispers, the scratch of a pen,They're writing silly notes, passing them around,but even right now i am not making a sound,Break time comes, i just want to run away,I go into the toilets, i just hope and i pray,I look into the mirror and look right at my face,covered in sweat and tears, oh what a disgrace,What am i doing crying and hiding like this,I feel like going in the room and giving some fist,but I'm not that kind of person, I'm just too shy,I'm a kind person who wouldn't even hurt a fly,I need to go home now and get a little rest,I'll get prepared for tomorrow and try my best,not to let any of them bother me in any way,As tomorrow is the start of another new day,At home i put on some music and have a cry,At last i am free and at home, I give a sigh,Then i jump into bed and i turn off the light,but i wake up because i get such a fright,I have had a nightmare, this is all i need now,I want it all to go away, I ask why and how,Is this all my fault for being scared and quiet, Is it my fault that I'm thin and their on a diet,but i am just me i can't be nobody else, ever,cos i don't want to feel like this, now or never!
