Remember– Bullying… Not so Cute

Bullying…
Young children are so cute,
with the expressions they make.
But teaching such actions,
may be a very big mistake.
For what looks cute,
when they’re small and young…
looks totally different,
when teenage bullying’s begun.


For a baby’s fist in the air,
with a frown on his face
may bring a parent’s smile,
and a loving embrace.
But the same expression,
on the face of a teen,
will bring a sign of warning,
of possible violent scene.


For bullying behaviors,
are usually learned at home…
by the way kids are treated,
and the actions they’re shown.
So what may be cute today,
may not be cute tomorrow…
’cause bullying and abuse,
leads many victims to sorrow.

For these babies grow to children,
then to teens then adults.
And these behaviors continue,
with many devastating results.
So teach your children,
the way they should act…
using the “The Golden Rule”…
No bullying should be a fact!

The Golden Rule

 “Do to others whatever you would like them to do to you.”

“You Are So Funny… But Not In A Funny Way”

Image result for you are funny

Have you ever heard,
“You are so funny… but not in a funny way”.
For “strange” is what they mean…
but don’t want to express it that way.
Now many are considered different…
cause they don’t fit the world’s norm…
as they try to walk in righteousness…
since to God’s standards they try to conform. Continue reading

A Land of Misfits

So many are criticized…
cause they don’t fit the norm…
but we all look different…
from the moment we are born.
But man sets a standard…
of how we should look and act…
and they criticize those different…
and this is truly a fact.
And many are bullied and abused…
for the norm they don’t fit.
But that is man’s standard…
in a land of “misfits”.
For this land and world…
treats many of us wrong.
But God sees us differently…
for this is not where we belong. Continue reading

DV Awareness Day#13: Bullying

As we bring awareness to the various abuses during October’s Domestic Violence Awareness Month, I want to include bullying as one of the abuses.  Bullying is not only found on school grounds, but at work and in homes and in various social media. Bullying is abuse… and should be “rejected” as acceptable in every area of our lives.

As a bully calls…
our fears arise…
for their contempt…
has little disguise.
But many are blind…
to abuse victims sustain…
but the victims know…
for they feel the disdain. Continue reading

Bullying: A Must See Movie “A Girl Like Her”

Bullying is a huge problem. It is found in schools, workplaces, and even homes. Unfortunately, those who bully do not even realize that they are bullying because their behaviors  are learned and are considered acceptable to them. And those who witness it are too concerned about their own safety to stand up to the bullies for fear of retaliation against them. So victims endure more and more bullying… until something happens.

The Weapon of Choice– Where Wounds Are Not Seen

Too many do not realize the damage that is done by hurtful words and actions, believing that the only “real” abuses are physical or sexual. But these verbal and emotional abuses cause wounds deep to our spirits and souls and set up many for failure, especially during this day and time with cyber-bullying with the various social media. The wounds inflicted are not visible to the naked eye… but God sees all the wounds and every cause. Nothing is hidden from God.

The weapon of choice…
where wounds are not seen.
With words and actions…
that are hurtful and mean.
Like calling someone “fat”…
  with laughter causing shame…
causing more emotional eating…
and extra weight that is gained. Continue reading
