 Why Bully Me? 

By Joshua A. Apparicio

4th Grade

 Why Bully Me?

Bully Me, Bully Me...

Why is this happening to me?

Bully Me, Bully Me...

I thought you saw a friend in me!

Why do you Bully Me?

Am I your enemy?

Like a tortoise in a shell…

I am too afraid to tell.

Why Me? Why Me?

Sometimes I don’t want to be me.

Bully Me, Bully Me!

How about being Kind to me?

Bullying me is not the key...

Friendship seems more kind to me.

What should memories of school be for me?

Would it be of the ones who bullied me?

…Or should it be of the, wonderful, incredible, intelligent me?
