Talking To My Younger Self (Bullied)

Dear 12 year old me,

Fight back!

I’m not saying be violent,

I’m saying stand up for yourself,

The things that your about to endure is going to be bad for your mental health,

It also gave you a wealth of knowledge,

What you learned this year made you a different person,

Being bullied constantly is a form of tourture,

It only last a year,

You got over fear of being yourself this year,

After this by the grace of God you were never bullied again,

But while your in it,

Fight Back!!

Don’t sit back and let them talk to you any kind of way,

And definitely don’t let them put there hands on you,

Most of all pray that God shows you a way to stand up for yourself,

Because now, there is no way it would go down the same,

All those clowns that bullied you,

You can still remember there first and last name,

Being bullied is tattooed on your brain,

It’s a good thing,

It makes you keep an eye out so it won’t ever happen again.

How long have you been writing poetry? -Over 20+years. How did you first discover poetry? - I discovered poetry by accident around 8 or 9 years old. I was taking a science test and there was a question about the moon. My answer was in kind of poetic form and the teacher thought it was great. My answer was " The moon is like a flashlight and the sun turns it on". After that I kept writing poetry and started to read a lot of books. I also listen to a bunch of music, all kinds of music. Mainly R&B music. I put song lyrics in the exact same category as poetry. When did you first get anything published? -I was 12, a family member was in a contest at work. She was 16 years old working at a clothing store in the mall. It was a tshirt contest. They had to write a slogan or a poem. I wrote it she won, I got nothing except a bigger interest in poetry. I still remember some of the poem " Thank you expiration, For all your dedication, Throughout the years, You have dried tears, You've always been there, To protect and care" . that's all I remember. Why do you write? - 1. It helps me with stress. 2. I like being heard. 3. I love poetry I see some of my poetry like abstract art. I know what I'm feeling when I write them but I want the meaning to be open to interpretation. Also poetry as art to me not competition, every poet that loves poetry is great. I just love to write poetry, everything I write isn't about me personally. I just try to think of how I would feel in different situations. So even though every poem isn't about me it's still my feelings.
