Practice English Speaking&Listening with: Me Too

Difficulty: 0

Monsters are real.

We cant always see them, but we can hear them.

Whispering in the back of classrooms.

Snickering in the hallways at school.

Passing notes between desks, or typing statuses on Facebook.

Some days, we cant outrun them. No matter how hard we try.

They follow us like shadows.

Those are the times when even the thought of going

to school can make your stomach feel like a graveyard, hollow and cold

and even a smile looks like the empty space under your bed because you're afraid of

what scary things might come out of it.

Even after we erase the comment, blocked the user, or deleted our profile,

what we read can continue to hurt us.

Sticks and stones can break your bones, but words are ghosts that hang around

long after they have been said.

Words can twist us.

They can take what's on the inside and change how we act on the outside.

They can make you feel like a monster yourself, swallowing every insult

until you're sick and silent like the air inside of a casket.

Ever feel like giving up?

Me too.

Me too.

Me too.

But we didn't and we won't.

We won't.

We won't.

Science tells us that our hearts are the same size as our fists.

But what if we were to open our hands?

How big could our hearts get then?

How much hurt and sadness could we let go of?

How easily could we reach out to others?

You're not alone.

You're not alone.

You're not alone.

and doing nothing.

might just be us.
