A Poem about Bullying

Gosh,

I wrote this years ago. So many years ago. It was part of an anthology about bullying and I completely forgot it existed until I stumbled on it just now.

I'm not much of a poet but I have written a couple.

I have to say I still feel strongly about this one so I thought I'd share it with you.



To the kid who doesn't think

They're strong enough to fight.

To the kid who thinks

They aren't worth a dime.

To the kid who was once me

And is now you

And will be me again in another life

I have but one thing to say.

You're tremendous

You are precious

You are wonderful

You are unique

You are amazing.

But this is not enough.

To the kid who doesn't think

They're strong enough to fight

Anyone, but the demons of their own imagination.

I have this thing to say.

You are strong enough to fight

Them.

You only haven't had the time,

To harness your greatest weapon.

Your words.
