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

This by far isn't my best poem but it still came from the heart so I hope everyone likes it. I would like critism... Just don't be to harsh:)

Thank you for the reviews everyone. I really appreciate them.

very nice. you use words smoothly to make an image the same like painters use brushes and colors to draw.

Real raw and intense write.

I hope you feel better though.

There's only one GOOD way I can look at this...someday those bullies will get their just rewards, and it won't be pretty either. That's probably not much comfort to you now, having to deal with this on a daily basis, but perhaps this will soon pass and fade into a distant memory. Good luck to you.

its horrible the things that can happen to kids or anyone for that matter...you expressed real emotion and truth, so many kids are bullied these days for looks, material things, race, or religion...

Some kids in school are always cruel.....one of the reasons why some people so hate school...bullying always goes on even though schools have initiatives etc etc....
A very impactful and perfect depiction...top work xD

The imagery here is disturbingly true. I think the idea of this is well conceived and lays facts out right from the start. There is a ever growing problem such as the one you mention.

Its pretty good and creative poem about a real, unfortunate problem. "Ring ring, Oh my God "I'm" saved by the bell" try that. and "they see my money and steal it". Good job again, its nice to see some people are creative;)
