Even if you weren’t looking at me, I saw you
Even if you weren’t talking to me, I heard you
Even if you didn’t invite me, I really wanted to go
Even though you didn’t hear me, I was talking to you
You asked me why I’m always crying,
But I know you really don’t care
When I’m not looking, your laughing with your friends about me
At the beginning of the year I was happy and smiling
I was full of laughter
Walking around and hanging with my friends
Two months of knowing you
No one would dare to be my friend
Destined to be alone
I was always alone
Except for when you and your friends would hurt me
Who are you? You’re my Bully!
Why do you hurt me?
Because you feel small inside
Because those you love have no time for you
They leave you out in the cold
Your friends just use you, because you’re rich or poor
Because they know you are going places and someday, they might need you
Don’t you know, you’re just like me
You’re bullied too, so stop hurting me and maybe just maybe
We can just be friends
Me and My Bully©

I wrote this for all the kids that I know that are now being bullied or were once bullied.
Stand up and take back your life. Turn your bully into your friend. Your bully is just as lonely as you are and maybe even lonelier.
Hopefully this poem and my statement noted below can be used as an educational tool. I hope it helps.
Remember that there is no place for bullying in anyone’s lives.
Bullying has no place anywhere. Stop the pain of the innocent.
Use your voice and stop abusers in their tracks.
