The Bully


Did I bully you at school?
I've a feeling that I did,
I'm ashamed to say I was a fool,
An Insecure young kid,
I'm sorry if I ground you down,
It was me that was at fault,
You were the new kid in town
And I never gave it thought,
I remember being jealous of you,
And everything you did,
I wound up making you feel blue,
Because I was stupid,
I never meant to cause you harm,
Or make you feel so bad,
Nor did I see reason for alarm,
But wish now that I had,
There's very little I regret,
In my life at all,
Except for stuff I can't forget,
Like making you feel small,
So sorry for all the things I said,
And all the hurt I caused,
I should have shut my mouth instead,
At least I should have paused
And given thought to how you felt,
I didn't think at all,
Unfortunately though, what's done is dealt,
And I wish I hadn't been so cruel,
It's probably far too late
For me to apologise,
But I can now contemplate
The reason you hate me because,
at the time I didn't realise,
How nasty that I was.

Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
