"If I can stop one heart from breaking, I shall not live in vain" ~ Emily Dickinson

When it rains,
on the little lonely school.
The Lord frowns down,
on all the "rules".

The rules invented,
by the "better".
Who cruelly choose
that some are "lesser".

And then treat them,
in such a way.
That makes the Lord,
weep today.

They're all God's children!
Every one!
Yet some still choose,
to make fun.

Of height or weight,
or way of speech.
Yet God created perfect,

And one of the most cruel,
sharp darts.
Is to make fun,
of someone's heart.

Only the Lord,
will ever know.
Just what's inside,
our fleshly thrones.

Yet some still show,
without a doubt.
That others they could,
do without.

We're all just beings,
blades of grass.
That wither quickly,
and soon will pass.

So who are we,
to judge each other?
And scorn who could nearly,
be a brother.

Let's drop our swords,
and weaponry.
And love like Jesus,
at Calvary.

When they're no longer,
treated as fools.
The Son will shine,
in the little, lonely school.

The author's comments:
One of my post passionate convictions is about bullying. Simply, I HATE bullying. At school, I often found a few of my friends crying in the bathroom at lunchtime, because someone called them "fat", "ugly", "stupid", or worse.
I am a Christian and try to see the world like Jesus. God created each of these weeping girls as His perfect, precious child. It makes me very upset to see people trying to destroy my friend's self-worth just "because it's funny".
Personally, I think schools need to have WAY stricter bullying policies (zero-tolerance, in my opinion), or simply, open their eyes to the damage this "simple teasing" is causing. Maybe this poem will help.
