Lessons from my Past

Keep your pocket money anywhere but in your pocket
Never believe when bullies tell you there a surprise in the toilet
Never sit in the middle row of the class
It's sure that you will be hit by paper balls in mass
If you happen to have a crush on the most popular girl in school, just pass
You will get hurt at the last

If you have a crush of you teacher
Teach yourself not to let your friends know this secret
If a girl bullies you around, always finds reasons to argue wit you
Believe it or not, she is in love with you

While other will be doing their home work
You will be doing home works
For those bullies and jerks
Never look a bully in the eye
In simple words, choose to live not die

But listen closely, on this one
More bullies will come, some would fight
While most would run
Those who choose to fight will have their eyes black and blue
Even if you choose to run, seldom ends up black and blue

For now, there is nothing you can do
Years later, the same bully
Will be working under thee
In a multi million dollar company
This is all a ex-nerd has to tell
In the end, all is well

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
