Treasure Island

Bullying


Frightened and bewildered you feel so all alone
To fend for yourself all your friends are gone
Ran for cover but you left behind a trail
You tried to defend yourself but to no avail
Be encouraged, stay focused and be strong

Dear God please help me and give me the courage
To share my problems and not to be discouraged
I can not fight these battles all by myself
Need to tell somebody not place it on a shelf
Be encouraged, stay focused and be strong

    When being bullied and left alone, we feel so discouraged... But we have to muster courage and gather strength and stay focussed... When we cannot solve the problems by ourselves, call God to our aid....! A poem reminding us of the need to remain hopeful! Enjoyed! (Report) Reply

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
