Me and My Bully©
Felina Silver Robinson
Even if you weren’t looking at me, I saw you
Even if you weren’t talking to me, I heard you
Even if you didn’t invite me, I really wanted to go
Even though you didn’t hear me, I was talking to you
You asked me why I’m always crying,
But I know you really don’t care
When I’m not looking, your laughing with your friends about me
At the beginning of the year I was happy and smiling
I was full of laughter
Walking around and hanging with my friends
Two months of knowing you
No one would dare to be my friend
Destined to be alone
I was always alone
Except for when you and your friends would hurt me
Who are you? You’re my Bully!
Why do you hurt me?
Because you feel small inside
Because those you love have no time for you
They leave you out in the cold
Your friends just use you, because you’re rich
Because they know you are going places and someday, they might need you
Don’t you know, you’re just like me
You’re bullied too, so stop hurting me and maybe just maybe
We can just be friends
I wrote this for all the kids that I know that are now being bullied or
was once bullied.
Stand up and take back your life.
Turn your bully into your friend,
Your bully is just as lonely as you are and maybe even lonelier.
I created the slide below to hopefully be used as an educational tool. I hope it helps.
As this new school year begins, remember that there is no place for bullying in anyone’s lives.
Bullying has no place anywhere. Stop the pain of the innocent.
Use your voice and stop abusers in their tracks.
My Poem Of The Day
If Only I Could Fly© (written 04/02/1980)
I dream of flying high above the clouds
Seeing all that I can see
The stars that shine so bright at night
Would warm me as I travel
I almost don’t care
As long as I’m feeling free
To shed those pieces of me
That carry the hurt from all those who judge me
It’s a pity I know
To have to go
So far away
There just doesn’t seem to be
Any other place that one of your friends don’t appear
And follow your orders to goad me
They all seem to annoy you
What makes you think you have the right to slay me
This is why I can’t sit by
Waiting for you to come for me
I wish that I could fly so high
And see you down below me
Just know that I would never
Do the things you do and make you feel like I do
All I want is my peace of mind
And for those I know to see me
See past your words
And past your scorn
To know that I’m actually quite alluring
Maybe, just maybe, you already know
And that’s why you choose to taunt me
So no one else will see
Anyone but you
