Topic: Bullies (08/09/04)

TITLE: I Once Was

I once was a school girl
So tender, young and cute
Who never had to deal with
A bully or brute

I once was a school girl
Who hit the books
Never experiencing haters of good
Or getting malicious looks

I once was a school girl
Who lived by the statutes, laws
And commandments of God
Never experiencing anything evil or odd

I once was a school girl
Who knew where to go
And what kind of people to be around
Cause I knew I wanted to be heaven bound

I once was a school girl
Always having self control
And in good behavior
With the help and guidance
Of my Teacher, my Savior


2 Timothy 3:3: “unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good,”

Romans 1:30: “slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents,”

nice little poem!

It is good to remember that not all of us have had to deal with bullies in school. Your prose is a good reminder of that.

Good poem. I found some of the lines lost their rhythm a little. Curious to know whether you have always been so serene.
Dian Moore08/16/04
I liked this. I thought you were leading up to something different though, with the title "I Once Was" and was expecting a part about "until this happened."

Monique,
You are still cute!

yep, the Holy Spirit is the ONLY one who can help restrain me at times! :-)

A good poem but with only 142 words it lacks the mininum word count to be able to vote on it, good effort and I look forward to reading your next submission.
