Bullies

website: None at the moment

I wrote this poem (or song) after I heard about a local child who been bullied and how he had suffered through the actions of other children. It is written for all the people in the world who are bullied.

BULLIES

WHY DO PEOPLE BULLY OTHER PEOPLE?
I DON’T KNOW WHY

BULLIES SAY
YOU’RE TOO FAT
TOO THIN

YOU’RE TOO TALL
TOO SHORT
YOU’RE NOT WHITE
NOT BLACK

YOU’RE LAZY
YOU WORK TOO HARD

YOU’VE TAKEN MY JOB
GET SOME WORK

YOU’RE TOO SMART
YOU’RE STUPID

YOU’RE THE WRONG RELIGION

DO BULLIES BULLY THROUGH FEAR?

FEAR OF BEING OVERCROWDED
OR JUST BEING ALONE

IS IT FEAR OF THE UNKNOWN
OR THE KNOWN?

IT IS CERTAINLY THROUGH IGNORANCE
THAT BULLIES BULLY OTHER PEOPLE

THEIR WORDS ARE FILLED WITH SO MUCH VENUM
SO MUCH VENUM

BULLIES SAY
YOU’RE TOO FAT
TOO THIN

YOU’RE TOO TALL
TOO SHORT
YOU’RE NOT WHITE
NOT BLACK

YOU’RE LAZY
YOU WORK TOO HARD

YOU’VE TAKEN MY JOB
GET SOME WORK

YOU’RE TOO SMART
YOU’RE STUPID

YOU’RE THE WRONG RELIGION

BULLIES COME IN ALL SHAPES, SIZES AND COLOURS
SO DO THE BULLIED

IS THERE AN IDEAL PERSON?
THAT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO ACHIEVE

WE SHOULD RESPECT DIFFERENCES IN OTHER PEOPLE

WHEN THE BULLIED ARE FREE FROM FEAR
WE WILL ALL BE FREE
