Treasure Island

Cassidy Fohs

I Know and I'm Sorry

I'm sorry I did not stand up for you
I once was bullied to
I know what it's like to dread coming to school each day
I know how hard it is to ignore what people say
I said I'd never stoop to there level ever
Yet I watch and laugh as your confidence is severed
I can see why you might want to even the score
I can't stand to watch this fight yet I hover by the door
I hear a crack which people say it's your nose but it's your heart
The punches keep coming at the speed of a dart
Your eyes meet mine and they beg help me out
All the ideas I have leave me in doubt
Instead of helping to pick you up off the floor
I turn and walk out the door
Only then do I let the tears stream down my face
I hope I never again have to see this place
When I was considered uncool
You were the only one who hung out with me at school
You were my friend for a long while
You gave my face a smile
Then I ditched you for they considered you a geek
Popularity I did seek
We took a pact to never become fake
But that road I did take
Only now will I not be able to sleep
I'll ponder my decisions and wish our friendship I did keep
I didn't stand up for you and I'm sorry I did not
But popularity is now all that I've got
I distanced myself from everybody and I left you alone
But into a different person I've grown
It is now my only task
To wear a mask
I no longer really feel
I am not considered real
I became what everyone wanted to see
And that person is way different than the original me

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
