Dear Bully:  A Collection of Poems about Bullying

~ Joyce Fields

 Dear Bully:

 When I look in the mirror,
What do I see?
I see a bully staring back at me.
Why do I pick on those who are smaller?
I never pick on those who are taller.
I shouldn’t pick on any at all–
That’s what I’ve heard grownups say.
I’m really not as bad as I act,
So I’m gonna stop acting this way.
The kids that I bullied will look at me
And think that I’ve lost my mind.
Instead of bullying and being cruel,
I’ll work on being kind.

Dear Bully:

 How did you feel when you heard
That I had committed suicide?
Did you laugh and shout with glee?
Or did you want to run and hide?
I was afraid to be in your presence.
I was afraid when I heard your voice.
I wanted to go to school each day.
But your actions gave me no choice.
Now I am gone and out of your reach.
But this is not what I wanted.
I just couldn’t take it anymore.
I was tired of being taunted.

Dear Bully:

I am your sibling,
And I’ve seen you in action.
Kids talk about you
And there’s no satisfaction
In knowing you cause others to cry.
I wish you would change—
You can, if you try.
I want to be proud
To say you’re my kin.
Uncover your kindness,
And you’ll have many friends.
