They tried to keep me oppressed
But I left them behind to reach success
They tried to bring me down
But I continued fighting and didn’t drown
I persevered and won my crown
At they stare me down with eyes of hate
I sail on through and continue to elevate
As they assault me with the evil word
With deaf ears, I press on their voices unheard
As they lay before me traps and snares
I avoid those snares and return a smug stare
As they fake, hiding their incompetence
I relax and move freely with confidence
As they align to attack me in droves
Like a Phoenix I rise above with love
I soar with the eagles
They only crawl with the snakes

This is a good poem and has much truth in it. But I would like to comment that we cannot always count on our own efforts to hold us up and keep us from drowning in the behavior of a bully. We must recognize that God is our true source of strength….a very present help in time of trouble.
I totally agree, and it’s through Him that we overcome bullying. I’ve mentioned in past posts that He carried me through those dark years and if it hadn’t been for Him, I never would’ve made it through. Thank you so much for your lovely thoughts on this, Mary. They’re appreciated more than you know.💖🕊🦋🤗
Cherie, you are so welcome! It is very evident that you have had some difficult times in the past. But your beautiful spirit and words of wisdom are what has come from your victory. Bravo! Lots of good can always come from bad.
I totally agree! 💯 Good certainly can come bad. God has a way of turning the most horrible of circumstances into the most beautiful triumphs. 🕊🦋
Beautiful , love it
Thank you so much, Nicholas! 🤗

Oh I know you will my Warrior Queen (channeling my inner Xena)! ⚔🎆🗡😜
Victims have to do the things you are doing and try to help and support others. They have to also be willing to help the more timid or those who have struggling with being bullied and be willing to stand up to the bully for then while encouraging them to the do the same.
You’re absolutely right. I believe that all targets should align with other targets and have each other’s backs because there is strength in numbers.
Yasssss! I love this poem! ❤️🤍
