Getting bullied is never fun

Billy the Bully

by nbonner

This is the story of Billy the Bully
He wore a wall of tough and a
Mask of surly
Billy would knock around his peers,
Call them names
He Learned early on this lessened
His pain
He would lie and cheat just for
The beatings he received by his father,
The neglect he endured was his only
Billy strolled around lonely with no one
To talk to
So sad to feel there's not a single soul to
Love you
People only saw what they wanted to
They didn't know nightly Billy got on his
Praying, asking for forgiveness, asking for
He felt only in death would he have
Already with a plan in
No longer would he abuse or be abused for his
Existence would be
Billy was gone
He finally found peace
Would people show empathy or have sympathy
Now that he's deceased?

Billy the bully was no bully at all
Just a poor soul who took too many
All he had to do is let God in
But Billy made a choice not to get up

We never realize that bullies are just another victim. We never realize that sometimes our actions can others to chose death over life. This is dedicated to a dear friend Billy Martin
