A blendship

piercing words colder than ice

they make one quiver.

with each passing day, obstinate bullies

unwilling to bestow kindness.

their spill of ugly words in print

their insipid garble of murky drama.

like a beacon from a lighthouse

beamed to the sky for all to see.

the bitterness in their souls

make one crumble and surrender,

our children the most vulnerable.

healthy friendships a crucial step

to develop emotionally and morally

to show compassion for others

to deter against bullying.

there is the awakening need

for friends at any age in life.

“Don’t walk in front of me… I may not follow
Don’t walk behind me… I may not lead
Walk beside me… just be my friend” – Albert Camus

  12. This hits home today as one of my granddaughters is being bullied by classmates. Is there ever an end? Well written,.

    • Awww, I hate to hear that, VJ. Bullying is especially hard on children. Personally, I feel bullying will never end. So many people are unhappy with themselves and take it out on the vulnerable.

  13. wow impressive flow of those prompts and a most worthy message!

  14. So many use words to wound…. and sometimes they cut deeper than any knife…. Bullies such as these I experienced in my own school years…
