She was born to a Middle class family
taught by her parents to love and respect
but at school she was a tearaway
something at home they could never detect.
Susan lived the life of Jeckyl and Hyde
she was crafty and careful at home
to look at her you would think "butter wouldn't melt"
so with trust she was left to roam.
At school her language was appaulling
she bullied kids most of the day
being the centre of attention was her goal
and always getting her own way.
A particular girl she hounded daily
was traumatized beyond any doubt
terrified of school and the consequences
and the taunting which would come about.
The girl had to pay money to be left alone
doing without her lunch
no one suspected or noticed this
or even had a hunch.
Her friends thought she was cutting down
as she was classified as obese
Susan haunted and bullied her
and rarely did it cease!
The whole school was terrified of this girl
as hard as stone they thought
Teachers thought she was a "shining star"
the best kid they ever had taught.
Then one day the girl fought back
Susan was caught off guard
for someone who had lots of "power"
today she had the losing card.
Susan was exposed, her parents cried
"how could our child be so bad"?
"we taught her love, respect and kindness"
and gave her all we had!!
From that day Susan changed
she became a different girl
no more nastiness,cruelty or hate
she gave being nice a whirl.
She became best friends with the bullied girl
the friendship lasted for many years
when they thought back to the unhappy days
both of them shed some tears.
Some people change, some carry on
bullying throughout their lives
in workplace, home, or anywhere
and sometimes even their wives.
Do not put up with bullies
they are cowards and will always be
expose them to a responsible adult
and a change you may hopefully see.
ZERO TOLERANCE FOR BULLYING,
have you ever experienced being bullied? or perhaps when you were at school YOU were a bully? have you changed? would love to hear from you.
