Reminisce - Poem by Leland Wright

Reminisce on when I was a kid
The name calling the brain washing that use to make me livid
When I encountered trouble it use to always it use to blow up in my face
Always finding myself misplaced
Instead of in class in the principals office
Though did not provoke found that my education was in stake
Had to speak with the kid who had bullied me since the school year began
Was so anxious to couldn’t concentrate on any of the exams
Walked to the play ground and finally stood up to him with words
Out witting him with an onslaught of verbal abuse that struck him like fist
Finally now I can be left alone
This life story will always be engraved in my brain
Like a stone with a growing black rose crackling from above
I’m not ashamed what I said to the bully
I would like to go into more detail if only I could remember more fully
