This week, I have yet another sonnet about bullying. However, with this particular poem, I implore everyone reading to participate by leaving a reply in the comment section below as I ask everyone who has ever harassed another human being one simple question: Why?
The above question should more or less speak for itself, considering the nature of the composition I’ve included with it. That being said, then, here’s What Goes On in a Bully’s Mind?
What Goes On in a Bully’s Mind?
August 2, 2014
Screaming like a psycho atop your lungs,
Shrieking out things even you know aren’t true
Just so you can humiliate someone
Who happens to be a stranger to you.
Talking smack behind the soul’s back, thinking
Your friends will find you cute, tough, and funny
When they should wonder what you’ve been drinking
That’s made you so dumb and childish, honey.
Honestly, what do you get out of it?
What drives you to hurt other people so?
What’s your motivation behind this bit?
What sense does it make to cause others woe
When there are better ways to spend your time?
Tell me…what goes on in a bully’s mind?
Well, that should do it this week. Thank you all once again for stopping by to read my stuff, and by all means, feel free to search this blog for other poems about bullying—or, for that matter, any of the other topics I’ve written about here—and see what else strikes your fancy. Don’t be afraid, either, to visit my author pages at Smashwords.com, Amazon.com, and Amazon.co.uk to see what books I have available on the market as yet. Also, although I’ve taken a long break from agent-searching to work on editing the sequel to my latest project, The Kingdom of Somnia, I obviously haven’t given up on that particular novel yet and hope to start resubmitting my query for it soon enough, so wish me luck there.
In the meantime, folks, until we meet again, happy reading!
