In our generation now
Love does not exist
I would never admit that
Love
Is more important than
Money
How could anyone think that
Your life won’t be complete
Without love
And always believe that
Love is just a weakness
Don’t ever think
Love is a relief to all your problems
And for the future generations
Wealth is what you need
I won’t consider that
Just wealth and power
Will destroy our lives
Because I don’t think that
Love does exist

Love does exist
Because I don’t think that
Will destroy our lives
Just wealth and power
I won’t consider that
Wealth is what you need
And for the future generations
Love is a relief to all your problems
Don’t ever think
Love is just a weakness
And always believe that
Without love
Your life won’t be complete
How could anyone think that
Money
Is more important than
Love
I would never admit that
Love does not exist
In our generation now

006. (a reverse poem on bullying)

A 13-year-old considers the reality of bullying…

unlethanCTo this

It is reality
standing up for yourself means hitting back
Only cowards can say
violence is never the answer
Know that
fighting back means getting even
I don’t agree that
there is a better way to protect yourself other than to pick a fight
Clearly
bruising someone’s face
is a better way of defending yourself than
using words
Truth is
that a bully has no feelings
It is false judgement
that you can stop being bullied by getting help from others
Acknowledge
that to injure someone for your own sake is ok
Don’t consider
it an option to confront a bully before attacking him
Think
that the only way to stop bullying is by getting revenge
Don’t believe
you can change a bully

To this day, it remains the same, unless someone decides to REVERSE it.

– Lena, 13
