24 (who?)
I've had it crushed
broken inside
thrown into the shadows
dragged it out again

I stood on the edge
with my soul in my hand
ready to throw it away
into the dark of the abyss

Don't tell me I have no soul
I've felt the pain it felt
from being crushed so many times
with every hurtful word
launched to my head
because my hair is red

Feel the pain I've felt
with all the damage dealt
to my soul every day
with all the things they say

I have a soul
which I feel every day
all the darkness kept inside
and sometimes comes out

When you see and when you hear
the things that come out of me
tell me again, I dare you,
to say I have no soul

Listen to every word
Watch all the tears
That come from my soul
When I finally break down
The barrier I keep up
finally broken down

You won't see the tears
You won't hear those words
You will see me when I'm strong
Only my beloved when I've broken down

But I am no fool
You've stopped to read
at the impossibility
of a ginger with a soul
I hate every single bully in the world.

It made me stronger in the end, but that doesn't mean I don't hate the journey I've had.

I hate the ginger jokes! I learned to shrug them off, but I get my feelings hurt. Good job! I really liked this!

Wow, I always thought those "gingers have no soul" where mainly good-natured jokes. I mean, annoying, yes, but nothing serious. I just can't get you would taunt and bully someone for something as stupid as the colour of their hair.

I have been bullied myself too, but looking back, I can now see that I DID really stand out because of my behaviour, and though no-one of course "deserves" to be bullied, I can see the way their mind worked. They just couldn't handle someone who was different. So that I get. But I always thought it so incredibly stupid if people got bullied just for something that is purely looks.

The problem is that the bullies see it as jokes, but it stops being a joke for gingers when you hear it all the time.

I love gingers. They are currently my favorite hair type.

I neer understood why people bully "gingers" as they call it. They are just people with red hair. Personally I sometimes wished for red hair but alas it doesn't work out for me

Thank you, itīs been years ago, but it has taken me some practice before I could write poetry. But now I do, things come out from all those years. Thatīs where the expression comes from.

If it makes you feel any better, I've always wished I had red hair. I've just always thought it was gorgeous. (Two words: Florence Welch.) In fact, I'm contemplating dying my hair red.

Some people want to have ginger hair and girls with ginger hair are often seen as the most beautiful, as they are exotic. For the bullies though, it is what makes you different. Although for them it doesn't matter what makes you different, they'll find something to bully you. It's just that ginger hair is something that stands out so much.

Boy, ain't that the truth. For me, it's pretty much everything BUT the hair. Namely, I'm a psycho-geek, I'm a vegetarian, and I don't follow the crowd.
