So, I've had this idea stuck in my head for a while now but it just hasn't gone anywhere. For the longest time, I only had "darling, they're just ghosts/looking to pick and pull at your bones" (which was originally going to be a part of every chorus run, but it didn't quite fit so I just left it at the end.) I wrote this for the people who are being bullied or pushed around by those around them. I've never been bullied, but I know it hurts. I can see the pain it causes and some part of me helps me know how much it hurts and let's me sympathize so I can try to help people through it. I know I said I wrote this for a group of people, but there's one person that specifically made me want to write this. My best friend moved away from us last summer and she's in a totally different environment. They look at her and start whispering, I know cause she's said so. And the girl who she thought was her friend is toying with her emotions just to keep herself at the center of attention. It's sickening how people can do that. And I wish I could be there, but I can't. Not only do I live in a different area, but I'm busy all the time. And when I'm not, someone always gives her a reason to not see us. It's been over a year already... It's been a year since our little circle would stay up until we couldn't keep our eyes open and focused on phone or computer screens, since we all went to a movie together, since we could talk to each other and things almost never got rough and overly dramatized in an unhealthy way. My best friend is stuck in a place where she doesn't know anyone and no one cares how trampled and ruined she gets. All I can do is pray for her and try to be as positive as I can. But that doesn't always happen. I'm not the most collected person in the world. I have a temper and sometimes I can't control it. Same with my emotions. If you read all this ranting and babbling and start crying, I'm sorry... That wasn't my intention. But I needed to get this off my chest. I think people need to read this and see that not only are those who are being bullied are hurting, but the bullies are hurting too. My dad always says that people who are hurting tend to hurt others. And I watched SayWeCanFly's video on self image and he basically said the same thing. The bullies are so insecure that they put others down to make themselves feel better. It's sad that they do that, but it's also sad that they're hurting. When someone bullies you, try to smile at them and be kind. It's really hard to do that, but it'll make them feel better and it'll give you strength.
The idea of ghosts is not like they're literal spirits haunting you, just people who have been mentally and/or emotionally brought down to the lowest level (or "killed" in a way, I guess.) So in order to make themselves feel "alive," they "kill" other people. They do this to make themselves feel better or to bring others down to their level. It's sad, really, but it makes sense when you think about it.
I think I'm gonna stop here. If you think more people should see this, then I'll post it to my Facebook. If you have any questions, comments, criticism, anything, don't hesitate to ask or tell or whatever.
