Finally My Say (For The Bullied And The Bullies) - Poem by Living Experience

Although it may not be easy to actually say goodbye,
To the way that you all treated me with you bullying and lies.
Its not always easy trying to be accepted, often we conform,
To all the little games they played the ones I tried to ignore.

It’s not just the kids that often bullied and teased,
In my first year the teacher clearly had it in for me.
What she failed to see is the example that she set,
That it was okay to bully a kid, with no expectations met.

I tried very hard to fit in, if I may be frank,
But you all had more fun, with your ridicule and pranks.
I may have stood a lone, and not very liked,
But at least I can say I am me and that I am alright.

What will you think years from now, when grown and matured,
Hey we knew that kid, and what we did was so absurd?
I know that I will take with me, the lessons that I learnt,
Don't conform to anyone, as you surely will get burnt.

Everyone is different and unique in their own way,
I choose to be Me each and every day.
Seeing you couldn't accept that, it’s really not my loss.
Thanks for opening my eyes to a just and a lost cause.

So good bye to all you bullies in Baxter Public School,
One day you will realize the steady golden rule.
What you put out - one day you will get back,
So try to remember that when you're giving new kids flack.

***Written by my son (with my help) - A child who was badly bullied in school***
