Behind the Bully

Think of your bully, think of their brain
Think of their sadness, think of their pain

Imagine their back round, their unbearable past
Imagine the impressions that will forever last

Look at their smile, look at their eyes
Look at what underneath the anger lies

Feel their sorrow, feel their despair
Feel the emotions that are hiding there

Picture their torments, their previous end
Picture their longing for just one true friend

Remember they are a person just like you
Remember they once were the victim too

Give them some mercy, a glint of hope
Give them the chance to find a new way to cope

A very good poem! But still, even though you should care for them, that doesn't mean they didn't wrong you and it's okay.

Looking through the eyes of a bully....I think the new prespective is eye opening...I think the poem is well done. Good job!
