Dear Bully – Page 35

~ Joyce Fields

 

My seventh and latest book, Dear Bully:  A Collection of Poems about Bullying, contains poems that capture the emotions associated with bullying, from various points of view—that of the bullied, the bully, sibling of the bully, parent of the bullied, etc.

I wrote this 53-page book with the hope that it will help at least one child.

For the next three days (January 10, 11, and 12), I will post one poem from the book.  To read a longer preview and order the book, click on the “GET MORE INSPIRATION!” button above.

This post is for January 12 (the last of the three days).  I hope you enjoy the poem and see how it can make a difference to at least one child.

Dear Bully:

Last night I dreamed that I came to school
And you apologized.
In front of everybody,
You said you realized
That bullying is for cowards,
And you choose to be brave.
Treating others like dirt is easy,
But it’s no way to behave.
The teachers and kids applauded.
You smiled and took a bow.
Then I woke up from my dream.
But anything’s possible.  Wow!

    The poem about dreaming a bully apologized is my favorite so far! If you can dream it, it can happen! Although it is hard to stand in front of others and admit our mistakes, that action uplifts us in even our worst enemies minds. It takes courage and maturity to right your wrongs. You better right your wrongs!!! Karma can be a bitch! Every pain you deliver to another is coming back to you multiplied. Don’t put out more than you can take!!!
