  2. “They will never break me” (Bullying) By: Lamont Carey https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PV5I9QS9UhMb Spoken word poem

  3. Lamont Cary • From listening to some of his poems I have realizes that in school he could play basket ball and that is why his teachers pasted him on. He also was bullied in school because he did not have the nicest clothes and playing basketball he could get him and his family out of the poor part of town.

  4. “They’ll never break me” (Bullying) This spoken word poem about bullying and what happens on both sides of bulling and what they think.it makes people think well if they can’t afford it than why do I make them feel even worse. I should be trying to lift them up instead of tiring them down. It is also about how to deal with bullying and what to do. I chose this poem because when people pick on me I say in my head “they will never break me”. The figurative language use is imagery and flashback . He uses imagery when he describes the pain he feels and what he sees. He uses flash backs to tell his story of when he was bulled. I saw when he said “I remember walking down the hall in school”. when he said “I can see there hated for me in there eyes” I see an angry face.
