A Boy

Rating: 4.3
My daughter came home crying, so hard she couldn’t speak,
I tried my best to calm her, wiping the tears from her cheek,
What is it my dear that’s upset you, Why are you crying so?
“Oh mummy, its too awful, you wouldn’t want to know”.
If you tell me what is bothering you, there may be something I can do.
“There’s nothing you can do mummy”, she said between her cries,
“They’ll say they didn’t do it, they’ll say you’re telling lies”.
What’s happened to my daughter, to cause her this distress,
What’s happened that’s so awful, to make her such a mess?
I’ve never seen her like this before, oh, what can I do?
You need to tell me darling, what has happened to you.

a good narrative...a bit longer than i had assumed it would be but excusable and understanable due to the subject matter

Has a lot of reality in it. Happens much to a lesser degree in schools. BUT, kids are kids.

Lindsey, this poem is amazing - it has brought out the worst side of bullying so effectively - I hope this sad social menace is finally stopped with serious punishment being awarded to the guilty 10+ from me and thanks for drawing my attention to your work

Lindsey this is as dramatic and provocative as a poem can get....you have penned this one with the detail of a brillaint screenplay....most poignant, powerful, and a social advocacy message as well for anti-bullying measures
