Unfortunately, there will always be people who bully us. From the school yard to the workplace, they are relentless. Hold your head high and focus on all the people that love and respect you. This poem is a good reminder for when the wolves come out.
“If anyone should ever hurt you”
If anyone should ever hurt you
And say a thing unkind,
Remember what I tell you,
And keep these things in mind.
For everyone who makes you cry,
There are three who make you smile,
And a smile will last a long, long time,
But a tear just a little while.
If someone says a thing that’s cruel,
Don’t let it get to you.
There’s so much good about you,
And your faults are very few.
So if a certain someone
Should act a certain way,
Just think of those who love you
And don’t let it ruin your day.
Don’t let someone who hates the world
Cause you to hate it too,
For behind the clouds is a golden sun,
And a sky that’s bright and blue.
This is a lovely poem that brightened my day. Indeed, a smile lasts longer than a tear. Thank you!
@Duncan, thank you for that kind comment. I had been feeling particularly picked on by someone when I posted that and your comment really made my day. 🙂
