The girl has a temper,
I must warn you;
At lunch, in class,
She can even break some glass.
At lunch she screams,
and runs and shouts.
She wants to fight,

            and just run, about.

Marco, where are you?
You, are my Polo

He sits on the bench
Cheering his team on
All the time wondering
When will the coach put him in?

His mom and dad look on smiling at him
He knows they will ask why he didn’t play more?
He doesn’t know himself
He will hear the, “you need to work harder” speech

There is a small chance he will do something great
But not really
He only gets to play
When the team has a comfortable lead
Or a starter needs a rest

Sometimes he gets lucky
A starter will upset the coach
And the coach will punish the starter
By letting him, a sub, play longer than normal

Thoughts confront him
What’s worst?
Not playing?
Fine with not playing?
Not fine with not playing?
Playing a little but playing well?
Playing more but playing bad?

He must break free
He must not let the coach, the team, the parents define him
He can’t be pushed aside
He has to be a fighter

The coach is not his friend
He is the enemy
He must convince himself of this
The coach stands in his way
He must stand out and play the game his way
Not the coach’s way
Or else he will be a sub the rest of his life
And all he will have to show for it
Is a pat on the back and job well done comment
And memories of others getting basking in their own glory
While he sits on the bench

I am proud of myself for,
being a leader.

I am proud of myself for,
encouraging others.

I am proud of myself for,
pitching a great game.

I am proud of myself for,
catching 3 pop-ups in the field.

I am proud of myself for,
gathering my younger teamates
in the pitchers circle when the field's
lights went out.

I am proud of myself for,
playing softball and
never giving up.

I can't help
can turn into
I can help.

I am worthless
can turn into
I am worth something.

I am stupid
can turn into
I am smart.

I am a loser
can turn into
I am a winner.

I can't help,
I am worthless,
I am stupid,
I am a loser,
    They are all lies.

You are beautiful,
Inside and out.

We will allow our confidence
to go down
If we continue
to let ourselves
think negatively.

Negative is worse than

React to my mean comments.
React to my physical actions.
React to my secrets about you.

React to me talking about you behind your back.
React to me riding up and down your street taunting you.
React to me being more popular than you.
I will not react to your mean comments.
I will not react to your physical actions.
I will not react to your secrets about me.

I will not react to you talking about me behind my back.
I will not react to you riding up and down my street, taunting me.
I will not react to you being more popular than me.

I refuse to do this,
                        I believe that you are jealous of myself,
                                                         ­       And that I am more mature
                                                          ­                                    I can handle myself
                                                          ­    It is you, who is insecure and irresponsible.
                                      I am all the things you aren't

Not A Bully
