JUST DESSERTS (OR ”WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND”)

 

I COMPOSED THIS VERSE IN RESPONSE TO SOME OF THE ARTICLES THAT WERE POSTED ON A GROUP SITE ON ONE OF THE OTHER SITES I AM A MEMBER OF.  IT IS A GROUP AGAINST BULLIES.  THIS VERSE IS A REMINDER TO THE BULLIES OUT THERE THAT YOU SHOULD ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT NO MATTER HOW BIG, TOUGH AND CRUEL YOU THINK YOU ARE, THERE IS ALWAYS SOMEONE BIGGER, TOUGHER AND CRUELER THAT COULD BE LURKING JUST AROUND THE CORNER JUST WAITING TO MAKE YOU A VICTIM.  JUST A LITTLE SOMETHING FOR YOU TO THINK ABOUT.

 

JUST DESSERTS

 

WHILE ALL AROUND HIM THE UNCARING WORLD SLEEPS

HE LIES CURLED IN A TINY BALL AND SILENTLY WEEPS

HIS HEART IS BREAKING AS THERE HE SADLY LIES

AS TEARS CONTINUE TO FALL FROM HIS LONELY EYES

HE WONDERS HOW LIFE COULD BE SO VERY CRUEL

TO FORCE HIM EACH DAY TO HAVE TO GO TO SCHOOL

FOR DEMONS WITH THE FACES OF ANGELS LURK THERE

EACH DAY FILLING HIS HEART WITH PAIN AND DESPAIR

THEIR WORDS AND ACTIONS CUT JUST LIKE A KNIFE

WOUNDING AND DESTROYING HIS FRAGILE LIFE

IN SILENCE HE HAS SUFFERED, NO ONE EVER KNEW

THE HUMILIATION AND PAIN HE DAILY WENT THROUGH

HE HAD SAID NO WORD OF THE SUFFERING HE’D KNOWN

BUT DAY BY DAY THAT PAIN AND DESPAIR HAD GROWN

BOTH HATEFUL WORDS AND ACTIONS CAME BY THE SCORE

UNTIL ONE SAD, DARK DAY, HE COULD TAKE NO MORE

THE CHILDREN HAD BEEN ESPECIALLY CRUEL THAT DAY

CUTTING HIM DOWN WITH THE WORDS THEY DID SAY

THEY HAD MADE HIM FEEL THAT HE HAD HAD NO WORTH

AND BY THAT NIGHT THERE WAS ONE LESS SOUL ON EARTH

YES, HE FELT HE HAD NO WORTH, THAT NO ONE WOULD EVEN CARE

IF HE WAS EVEN ALIVE, THIS WORLD WITH THEM TO SHARE

HE HAD KNOWN WHERE HIS DAD KEPT HIS HUNTING KNIFE

AND THAT NIGHT HE HAD CREPT AWAY, THEN TAKEN HIS LIFE

AND AS FOR THE BULLIES, THEY ALL WENT ON THEIR WAY

TILL THEY CAME UPON SOMEONE MUCH CRUELER THAN THEY

AND NOW THE TABLES HAVE BEEN TURNED COMPLETELY AROUND

AND IT IS NOW THEY THAT PAIN, DESPAIR AND CRUELTY HAS FOUND

AND IT DOES NOT TAKE ANY OF THEM ALL THAT VERY LONG

TO DISCOVER HOW THEIR ACTIONS ALL THE TIME HAD BEEN WRONG

AND WHEN THE CHOICE OF LIFE OR DEATH COMES FOR THEM TO CHOOSE

THEY LEARN WHAT IT IS LIKE TO BE IN THEIR FORMER VICTIM’S SHOES.
