On My Way To School

On My Way To School

A Poem by Dove

First hit

My lip splits

Eyes swell

This won’t end well

Kicked in my knee

D****t please

Just let me be

Why are you doing this to me!

They take my homework and rip it

They see my money so they steal it

They like my shoes so they take them

It’s one of me and many of them

“Leave me alone just leave me alone I promise I won’t tell”

Ring ring, Oh my God I’ve been saved by the bell

Or at least so I thought

Hmm maybe I should have fought

I have to remember

Sticks and stones may break my bones….







…. But names can really hurt me

I go up the stairs and through the doors

My face and my clothes are messy but no one cares

I go to the bathroom and clean up the mess

It’s ok though

Because I know

I will be safe

… Until recess

It will sound like a familiar tale to a lot of people.
You manage to get the humour in there, and it rhymes well. Hopefully you won't get bullied on here.
I'll go and get them for you if they do ;-)

Growing up is messy and painful. Thank you for an honest glimpse into what that means for you. Hang in there!

I actually love this poem, it captures the essence of bullying and the trauma the victims go through perfectly. There is no need for symbols or metaphors because some heinous acts shouldn't be watered down.

Bullying has certainly been around as long as civilization, but has more recently been in the limelight ,drawn out from the grimey darkness in which it and it's perpertrators like to hide.
You did this subject it's due justice!

Thanks, I'm glad you liked the poem
This is an excellent analogy of bullying and the effects is has on the victim. The imagery was spot on and the cadence was mostly rhythmic. Good poem.

That was the most catchy poem I've ever read! It definitely made me giggle, and it was one hell of a journey through a poem. It's not what I expected when I clicked on it, which is very, very good. :)
