Bullies are a real problem in our world, leaving most of us to figure out how to deal with bullying more effectively than we currently know how to.

Bill Cottringer

Bullies come in all shapes and sizes—
Countries, religions, girls and men,
All doing the same thing though;
Shouting and spreading their hurt,
Beating others down,
To pull themselves up;
Not seeing their wrongs,
Or admitting insecurity;
Continuing the cycle of hurt,
But never with good outcomes;
Leaving the rest of us,
To figure things out—
How to stop the bullying?
There’s only a few ways:
Take a stand,
Understand the wrongs,
Know the rights,
Live your love,
Keep hoping,
Be assertive,
With compassion,
With Commitment.
