Dragons Don’t Win | [POETRY]

18 Jul

Do we each have the moral courage to stand up for those whom are bullied?

I promise to answer the call.

WILL YOU JOIN ME?

Poem about bullying

Dragons Don’t Win

Today I saw her spirit, crushed and tak’n away.

The Punisher thought it funny, to treat the girl this way.

The target of repression, he labeled her downcast.

And struck her with his names and stones, and with his fiery blast.

And to the silent, brittle girl, I lunged to take the fire.

To shield her from the dragon’s heat, to help the flames expire.

And all the dragon did, was turn and walk away.

Because someone stood up to the beast, and saved a soul today.

    I hate bullies and find myself often stepping up and calling them out for it. Not really the safest thing to do as a woman, but I suppose that being a survivor of domestic violence I cannot really handle witnessing other people being emotionally bullied or hear (through walls or wherever) someone physically hurting another. I am the neighbor that calls the police and the stranger that says, “Hey, pick on someone your own size!” (Though in reality those are not my words as they don’t really mean anything to the person doing the bulling. You cannot just say stop it and then turn and walk away. You must follow through with seeing that it stops.

    Thank you for the poem and being someone willing to answer the call when another needs it!

      Memee, thank you for your kind compliments. Praises and thanks to you for your moral courage and strength. You probably saved a child’s life and didn’t even expect to. Thank the Lord for heroes like you. X
