First this poem talks about how a person fights through darkness every single day, and rarely receives help until he begs for it. Then, it continues to talk about how this is thoroughly related to how a bully victim's day is.
No, I'm not a bully victim, but I think this issue should be brought up.

This is a really awesome piece but I think there IS something missing. If I were you I'd take out the third person and make it in his/her viewpoint. A "show not tell" sorta thing. I also think that after what this kid has gone through he/she is either very emotionally hollowed out or very strong. Or both. That's just how I see it. You also had a more positive voice at the end talking about negative things, and I think you can make it more simple and more powerful. It's up to you. Great poem otherwise -C

I liked the message in both of your poems. In the first one though, I found two instances where the poem didn't rhyme. I assume you wanted it to flow, so that's why I'm pointing it out. In the second, I could sense the emotion, but the poem felt incomplete to me somehow. Maybe you could add a few more descriptive lines about how he/she felt?
