The Nerd

Iím one of them they called a nerd
I know the meaning of every word.
Make all Aís in my local school
Always following the rules.

Some of the bullies donít like me
It causes me great misery.
In the bathroom theyíre on my case
In my locker they hide my face.

My mom said, ďItís just a phase
Soon they will start to act their age.Ē
She was wrong it went on and on
Singing that morbid song.

I felt so bad I turned away.
No one to hear what I say.
Finally Iíve given up
Canít drink from a broken cup.

As I sit here on this stone
Feeling empty and so alone.
I feel this presence all around
From the sky onto the ground

I look around could see no one
I heard a voice say, ďIím the Son
Come with me we can be strong.
Iím here to help you get along.Ē

ďI know one whoíll help the most
He is called the Holy Ghost.
We can be strong wait and see
Calm your soul and set you free.

I donít know but now I find
I always end up first in line.
The bullies seem to fade away
Havenít seen them to this day.

Before the Father we will bow
My threefold cord has shown me how.
I can do is how I feel
The strength is here I know itís real.

Now I know through pain and strife
It will be with me all my life.
You say, ďThis seems too hard to do
You donít know what Iím going through.Ē

Iíll tell you how my story ends
Gathered here with all my friends.
And if you want to be a part.
Just ask Jesus into your heart.

Really enjoyed your poem. The ways you described the Son was touching to me. He really is like that.
