Uneducated Fantasy

A Poem by WordNerd
"

One of the ill effects of cruelty is that it makes the bystanders cruel

"

Bells ring violently in the air

Punches burning the bodies that care

School walls bleeding out words of pain

Fear flows rapidly thorough your veins

 

Teachers watch, as the students turn grey

Innocent hearts screaming for a way

Lockers glaring with rage

While identities are trapped in a cage

 

Black tears cutting down the cheek

Doors closing for the freak

Scars of bullying never hide

It jumps off the skin; committing suicide

Oh, I HATE bullying. And it happens to both of my older girls. I've had to contact counselors and principals. And they're not freakish or anything, kids just seem to have gotten overly mean these days. It's horrible!!

The poem was really meaningful, and if you couldn't tell, I identified with it right away :) It is frustrating that even when there's supposedly zero tolerance policies other students, and sometime even teachers just look away because they can't be bothered. And it saddens me even more that those who are doing the bullying and having their "fun" don't realize how much damage they're really doing. Great write!!

GothicPrincess, this is more than decent; it's excellent! Sadness and rage intermingle in a classic piece that reflects the sometimes injustice of human nature. And, reluctantly, the taking of a life to end pain. Pure genius!

Yes!!!!! Hearts are hardened as they turn away from all that they see afraid they will find themselves as the brunt of these games that people play. Sadly, this continues into adulthood. Penned well, GothicPrincess

Wow...moving, touching, magnificent. I loved the way you described it....what is this based off of school? The way you describe it, it's like a living Hell, which I believe many can relate to. This is really touching though, and has a lot of emotion in it. Are all your descriptions quotes? Either way, it fits the poem nicely. Bravo, and Well Done.

A lot of pain stamped down with each letter. A true meaning too. Excellent.
