The Bus Ride.

The Bus Ride.

A Poem by Taz
"

A poem about the conversations people have in the back of the bus.

"
Gossip and brag,
No real words here,
A game of tag, to them, don't sit near,
Because if you do, you're bound to be "It",
Your story next,and no you can't quit,
When you are tagged, it's then you must share,
Because if you don't the burn of the stare,
Is felt,
You now are "uncool",
You look like a fool,
Just cause you don't drool
Over Poisen.
The cycle keeps going,
No stopping them now,
It's venom their throwing,
From their mouths, and the crown,
Is hers.
The game of tag,
is now all but done,
No more left to brag,
It must have been fun,
To win...

I can readily identify with this. I wish I could say "sticks and stones," but honestly it follows us through our lives. The barbs stick and we do bleed. I am sorry you suffered this.

There are so many things I know I should say - "You're better than them." "Their words mean nothing." "Someday they'll grow up and regret they way they acted." But you know what, in the end, I know that it does matter. No matter whether you tell yourself it shouldn't matter or try to convince yourself it doesn't matter. It does matter.

So, what I will say is this, that absolutely sucks to the ninth degree. Be upset, be angry, be hurt, express your feelings, get it out - then, walk away because although every moment of your life will shape you, this single moment will not define you if you do not give it the power to do so.

You know... I can see this as a song too. Uh bullying! I don't miss those days. Invisibility was worth gold way back when. Thanks for sharing Taz!
