The Bully and I, by Anonymous


You and I aren’t so different 

The bully and I 

We both face issues 

And it’s okay to cry 

But to hurt me 

Does not take the pain away 

You and I aren’t so different 

We are both in pain 

Struggling in life 

But to ruffle mine is not right 

Under our faces 

You and I aren’t so different 

Both humans in misery 

Both struggle in a world against us 

Both who mask our pains 

Me by holding it in 

You by letting it out 

You and I aren’t so different


The meaning of my poem relates the bully to the person being bullied. That both are humans who face issues in life and deal with their problems in different ways, but under the skin, we are the same, people.
