A Poem to My Bully, by Anonymous

I understand, 

I understand that you were feeling pain you wanted others to feel, 

the pain that you felt 

I’m sorry, 

I’m sorry you felt pain 

though there was no excuse 

for how you made me feel


I forgive you, 

I have grown 

to share my story 

and not feel alone 

I hope you’ve learned now 

as I have learned 

coping by hurting others, 

does not relieve
