Don't wish it were easier - wish you were better - Jim Rohn

The arrogant man laughs as he pulls his prank,
delivers his blow, leaves his mark.
But he will see.
He will know my pain soon enough.
He will laugh ‘til the end,
and as I see him now, it will be a bitter end.
His end will not be by my hand, nor my word,
but by his own doing.
He will destroy himself sooner or later.
He is only a boy, and he remains a boy,
While I,
I turn into a man with a rich future in sight.
I hold no grudge,
for I pity him.
He has no future.
So laugh arrogant man, laugh,
for soon you will see how wrong you are,
and I will have turned my back on you forever.

The author's comments:
I was being bullied by this loser kid, and I realized that even though this situation is unpleasant for me now, it will pass and I will be a successful adult. This kid has been a loser for YEARS, and I realized that his future is actually kind of bleak, because he enjoys doing what he is doing to others. Eventually, society will turn their backs on his behavior, and he will be left with nothing except a possible jail cell.

I didn't realize how much bullying continues to affect children. Your poem has certainly given me a fresh understanding, and your perspective is quite mature. Congratulations.
