Bullies Never Grow Up


Notice of absence from WriteBeLight
Hello all of my poet pals. I will be gone for a while, so I will not be posting anything. Just wanted to let you know. Ta Ta for now :) I will miss you while I am gone.

Bullies are terrible,

No doubt about that.

Will say you look bad,

Or, that you’re too fat.

 

They can’t help themselves,

Their character is mean,

Definitely a problem,

With their self esteem.

 

They try to come across,

To all, so appealing.

While trampling upon,

Other people’s feelings.

 

If I see a person,

Looking tired that day,

I continue in conversation,

About their looks, I'd never say.

 

That their eyes are set,

With dark circles under them.

I’m sure they’re aware,

They need support from a friend.

 

Not someone who says,

A criticism, so loud.

Beating down upon others,

Does that make them proud?

 

Well, in my opinion they,

Enjoy their disservice.

Being hurtful to others,

For their own selfish purpose.

 

Because, if they looked,

In the mirror they’d find,

Their wrinkles have spread,

On the face of a small mind.

 

And, the haircut they chose,

To everyone, looks bad.

But, keep it to myself,

Don’t want to spoil their glad.

 

 

Because if I bring it up,

I would stoop to their level.

No, not worth my time,

To burst a Bully’s bubble.

      Best advice as you say is to ignore them and not get down on their level . Like flies , maybe they'll go away .

            Thanks P.H. They are pathetic and small-minded and not worth your time. Just incites them to continue to behave badly.

                  Very good advice, WBL! That's one thing I've always hated is a "gee you look tired today" Oh thanks. People can be so mean and catty when they can choose to say nothing at all. Or something uplifting! Really great write!

                  • WriteBeLight

                    Women, I would have to say, are the worst. Although I know one "man" who is right up there with sarcasim as well. I appreciate the comment and it is nice to hear from you. :)

                  • kathyhall

                    Great advise and so nicely worded!!

                      Very good write. Bullies are cowards and with any bullies apathy towards them is a great weapon.
