Why Me

Updated on September 30, 2009

bullies hurt me

Why Me

As I enter the school yard I look left then right

I do not want to run into you because you will start a fight

I do not see you any where close by

So I run towards the building and I go inside

I  quickly remember to be careful and look around

Because if you see me you will throw me to the ground

You will hit me hard on my arm or my face

It is getting harder for me to come to this place

A place for me of sorrow and pain

Torture and teasing it is your favorite game

I often wonder what did I do

You do not even know me not even my name

But for some silly reason you like to cause me pain

Not just my body but deep in my heart

I don't even know how did it all start

I think you are lonely maybe you need a friend

Someone to listen to what makes you mad

Or someone to help get over being sad

I often wonder why did you pick me

What was the reason this I do not see

I am not mean,nasty or bad

In fact I'm quite kind and helpful and always feel glad

Maybe that is why because I'm so happy and free

You see something in me you wish you could be

I will help you if you want me to

I will listen if you need me when your heart is feeling blue

You don't have to beat me and make me cry

Just say hello and you can be a friend let your heart fly

We can play games go fishing and all that stuff

But beating on others doesn't really make you tough

It only makes people afraid of you

And if you have no one then what will you do

We all need each other to make this life nice

So put down your fists and I will wipe the tears from my eyes

We can shake hands put the past in the past

 Build a strong friendship and through the years it will last

Now think about all the things I have said

And even dream about it when you go to bed

Then tomorrow we can start it all new

You be nice and I will be a friend for you

      Quill I'm glad you liked my hub. I would never have guessed you were a bully you seem like such a wonderful person. I'm glad you stopped when you did. I always stopped the bullying when I saw it too.I can't imagine being on the receiving end but I also never bullied anyone. It's just not in my nature. But I was friends to alot of people who were bullied and I tried to protect them the best I could. Thank you for sharing your experience maybe it will help someone else to stop and be a better person. God bless you

      Sadly as I read your poem I was reminded of myself being the bully as a child. Even after many warnings it continued, until the day I met one that was bigger than me. The pain that I had inflicted was now being inflicted on me. It was not until I had received a broken arm from him in a fight did it stop. We became friends and choose to be the Bully Cops, not with violence but with encouragement to the bullies of what they were doing.

      Thank You Tracy for sharing this writing with us all.

      Blessings

      vanderhaven, I'm so sorry you were bullied that is so sad to me. If these bullies only knew what kind of hurt they were causing maybe they would stop. I think most of them do it because they have unhappy lives and so they make others feel bad to make themselves feel better. But I think it doesn't work for them and they get angry and get even worse. I'm so glad you had a true friend. One friend can make all the difference in the world..God bless you

      Very sweet poem. I was bullied -- not in a fighting way but with names they would call me, etc. But I did have a very true friend through it all and that really did help lesson the pain, etc. Thank you for your true words and I wish I would have had them back then so I could of tried to befriend them and forgive them, etc. My friend I did have was a lifesaver though :)

      Looking forward to more hubs by you.

      I'm so sorry your son had to go through this. I know that alot of children suffer because of this. I myself was never bullied but alot of people I grew up with were. I would become their friend so that they would be safe. Thank you for the comments and God bless you and your family..

      My son had the same problem as you.

      Then I took him to a place where he learned Kung Fu.

      No one every bullied him ever again.

      It was dangerous to be his enemy, so the bully became his friend.

      It is a difficult thing to deal with. I wish you the best.
