9-Year-Old Patient Transcends Bullying with Compassion, Poetry

Sometimes, it just takes a few words to start a healing process. The following poem was written by one of our primary care patients – a 9-year-old girl whose expressions of compassion helped her overcome her experience with bullying.

“Bullying”

I was bullied at school for two whole years.

Most days I shed a lot of tears.

 

You made me not want to come to school.

All I wanted was to run and hide,

Because you took away all my pride.

 

They tell me one day I will forget.

That thought still makes me fret.

 

One day I see someone who is afraid.

Who is being bullied and is really scared.

 

I’ll tell them, “Please don’t cry, you are not alone.

I will be your friend and give you my shoulder to lean on.”

 

“We can do this, you and I.

We won’t let anyone make us cry.”

 

– L.H., KinderMender patient
