Sian Mein

Dear School Bully

On a skeleton's throne
you rest your head
Cruel world tyrant
you wish me dead

But to you have I done
such a terrible deed
That you silence my voice
til I give in and plead

Get over yourself
so that I may be free
No one really likes you
but this you don't see

Although not quite yet
the time will come through
When you're no-one like me
and know not what to do

Then and there I will know
that you're afraid more than I
You just hide it better
yet still we both cry

Inside or out
it's all just the same
The only thing different
is you're filled with shame

So step down from your throne
relinquish your crown
be friends with your foe
and turn up a frown

the day will be brighter
for this you will see
we can all get along
he, she, you, and me.

    Such a true and sad poem. In schools there should always be zero tollerance for bullying. The bully has pain inside that someone has given them and they want to cause pain to another. A vicious circle. Thanks for sharing this important message. Hugs (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
