Leeches in Society
I am swimming in a tranquil blue lake.
Until the leeches come and suck my soul.
They grab tight hold of me and then they take.
Sucking my dignity leaving a hole.
They try to slurp up my soul through straws,
And take my courage and confidence away.
They never followed any of the laws.
Once they are done, they leave me tired and gray.
I tried to pull the leaches off of me.
And have complained about bullies for years,
The adults do not hear my desperate pleas.
My complaints only fall upon deaf ears.
Being a victim of harassment sucks.
When it comes to bullies you’re out of luck.
