Friends In High Places©

Copyright 2014

by Felina Silver Robinson

My friends are in high places
Seated so high
One on the left and one on the right
They keep watch over plenty
They’re entrusted to rule the world
I’m not usually someone to follow
But this time I’ve chosen the path
I promised to be faithful
If you show me a thing or too
I will lead them to you quickly
But only if you’ll save them
And send them back to me
I have friends in high places
But it means nothing if I can’t trust them

Can I call you one?

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
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.

With a new school year just a month away, 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.


Out to Sea©

My friend she travels here and there

Although she’s smiling, her pain is clear as can be

As she seems full of sadness

 She sounds as though she misses home

And all of whom she loves

 Traveling sure takes its toll

When you are out to sea

A never-ending yearning for what use to be

She sits there with her husband, lover, and friend

Although he’s everything she ever hoped for

She still seems to be missing her friends and family

 There seems to be no substitute

For the love of family and friends

 No ocean big or small

No sunset or moonrise

Nor the stars at night

 Why not come home my dear friend

For we miss you just as you miss us


Friends©

By Felina Silver Robinson

Come in all sizes and are all different ages

They sometimes want what you want and need what you need

They help you make the right decisions

Sometimes they tell you things you are not ready to hear

But you listen, because you know they are sincere

and more often than not, they are right

Friends

They take a beating

They stay through thick and thin

Just don’t abuse them because the good ones are hard to find

I’m the kind that would do whatever it takes to see you happy

I would help you be the best you that you can be

I would help you do those things you’ve always been too afraid to do

I would let you know that you can do almost anything

Because a true friend is that part of you that you always wanted to be

Friends

They will not falter

They will be there forever, if you let them

Stripped of all that’s normal

I’m bare and I’m free

I run wild between the trees in the wilderness with thee

Hoping that no one will see

You bring life to my soul

My spirit is alive for a time

Not long enough for me

Before the alarm bell rings

and life gets in my way


… and three friendship-preserving alternatives.
