"Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

As I am shoved to the wall,
Thrown to the floor.
Shoved into a locker,
Mocked and teased,
Hurt both physically and mentally,
I stand back up and shake it off.
A bully gets no greater joy
Than seeing the bullied down.
As a victim of bullying,
I say stand back up,
Stand against the hurt,
Get help from another,
Support someone being bullied,
Do not throw the bully back.
Leave the walls alone,
Do not throw others to the floor,
Keep people out of lockers,
Restrain yourself from mocking and teasing,
Do not become a bully
As you try to escape that very issue.

The author's comments:
Bullying is a common issue both in the social media and in public areas. This poem I wrote is about bullying in schools and how it happens as well as trying to stay away from becoming just like the people who bullied you in order to survive the experience.
What I have to say is this: Stay strong, those of you who are bullied. You will prevail through the pain!
