My Poem of the Day

(09/10/2013)

Me and My Bully

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
I was 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 or that have been 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.

I have a vision for tomorrow …

I have a vision for tomorrow that doesn’t include violence.
It doesn’t include intimidation or a culture of brainwashing.
My vision is for individualism and free thinking people who don’t have or need to follow the destructive decisions of a smaller majority of unhappy people.
I choose to stand proud and do things that will be remembered for the good they were meant to do.
Those who bore me and those who look up to me will see the good and forgive any imperfections.
I wish to prove that good choices and good actions will be followed and will wipe out all the bad choices of others.
When I open my eyes I will see good in all people and will no longer be sad.
I have a vision….

Take back your life

♦ ◊ ◊ ♦ ◊ ◊ ♦ ◊ ◊ ♦ ◊ ◊ ♦ ◊ ◊ ♦ ◊ ◊ ♦

The look upon your face is sadness
I wonder what they said to hurt you so
I wonder why they hurt you
Words are often hurtful, but only when they’re meant to hurt
You don’t deserve it
They fault you because you’re different
They fault you because they know you don’t care
You don’t care what they say or what they do
But that’s just what you say
That’s just what you tell yourself
Maybe it’s not true
I see your eyes sadden
I see your body change
With every mean word that falls from their tongues

Your smile only returns when I enter the room
I feel saddened by what they have done to you
I’m saddened that they’ve taken the life from inside you
I wonder how I can help you
Help you find your way back to being you
The you that always smiles
The you that always laughs
The you that knows what they say doesn’t matter
The you that knows you’re the best that you can be
And that’s the best you to be

Whoever you want to be is who you will be
Whatever you want to do is what you will do
When you want to do it you will do it

Move forward with your life the best way you know how
Don’t let anyone or anything get you down or in your way
Take back control
Take back your life

Carry on as the you I’m proud to know

Each of us bound to the life that’s been chosen for us
Our fate is marked when we take our first breath
We are all innocent when first we arrive
We must be careful when choosing which road to take
All that we see may not be as it seems
Choices must be made with care
For they will determine which road you will take
Opinions can’t be made solely on what is seen
We will have to live up to expectations of all those watching over us
Our schooling will prepare us for the career we hope to obtain
Our religion or beliefs will guide us morally
Love and friendship will handle the rest
As long as you stay true to who and what you want to be
Life should go your way
Nothing will come easy
Hard work reaps reward
Be thankful and grateful for each day
Show compassion and understanding to those who struggle
Struggle to find their way as you have found yours
Carry on as the you I’m proud to know

Carry on as the you I’m proud to know

Always there when you need me

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

I shed a tear
I open my heart
I listen to your pain
I’m there to support you

You can count on me
You know I’ll never leave
You know we’re one in the same

You shiver
I bring you warmth

You are fearful
I bring you peace of mind

You want to give up
I give you reason to go on

You feel crushed
I pick up the pieces

You’ve turned a corner
I’m there to greet you

You finally choose to live
I’m there beside you

Never Done

Blessed with a child, often more than one
Our Job is never done
We make sure they never go hungry
That they are always clothed
That they get the best education possible
That they get to be a child for as long as they may
That they fulfill as many of their dreams as possible
That they hold a smile upon their face instead of a frown
That they learn to fight life’s battles

Always let them know that you love them
And life may be hard but all the pain ends up being worth it
Just hang in there and that rewards always come to those that are deserving

Always know that a parents job is “Never Done”.

I Wonder…

I wonder if I do too much, take on too much
I wonder if they will be disappointed if my smile is absent next time they see me
I wonder if they will notice when I’m no longer there
I wonder if they know just how much their words hurt me
I wonder if they just don’t care

I wonder if I’ll have the time to change the way they feel
I wonder if it really matters that much to me
I wonder why I can’t stop caring as much as I do

I wonder if they know I used to cry myself to sleep
I wonder if they really need to be who and what they are
I wonder if they could survive being me

I no longer wonder, I’ve decided just to be me
The me I used to be before I started to care about them and what they would think of me
So now I no longer have to wonder or cry myself to sleep
—————————-
For those who know me, this piece is not about me. It is written as a reflection of young girl I know who is constantly worrying about what others think about her and how they treat her. She is working on finding her inner peace as we speak.

Manic Monday

I wake up do the darkened morn
Energy already gone
Lots to do and so little time
But I know that once this day is done
The rest of the week will be a breeze

The sun finally shows it’s face
No train, or bus to catch
I go to the front yard to retrieve the days paper
I see the leaves come to life with color
So now I can do what I must to make this day a success

With energy restored and shower taken
There is spring in my step
As I make my way out into
World today, I think about all that a Monday brings
Everyone tired from their weekend triumphs
They stop for their coffee to begin their day so
I’ll stop for my tea then I will be set for the day to begin
The Monday morning blues will be gone

My day is stress free because
Everyone is too tired to make things hard
I’m happy to say that
My Manic Monday will be no more

Power of the people

Here I sit on this skinny little wall
Sifting through all my thoughts of the day
Wondering why things are as they are
Government shutdowns
Baseball players using the league
Mothers dying due to depression
Men found dead in their homes
Men stealing from a police station collecting for DARE
Where is all the good that I know is out there
Why is there so much doom and gloom
We all must paint a picture of the good we know
And help those that feel lost, unappreciated, or misunderstood
The power of the people is the strongest that there is
It will take all of us to make a change for the better
Just wait and see just how much better things can be
