I wrote this poem for my friends daughter who is being bullied in grade school. I’ve never met her before, I have no idea what she looks like, and I don’t even know her name. Yet I woke up two nights ago with her in my thoughts and moments later this poem came to me.
Oh little girl with a big heart,
I don’t know your name,
But your smile is art.
Keep on being who you are,
Your light is shining from afar.
I know it hurts you what they say,
But they are night and you are day.
Just pretend that you can’t hear,
And these vampires shall disappear.
But if they ever come too near,
Then shine your light my little dear.
You are strong and they are weak,
Trust me, one day you’ll reach the peak.
Remember these words that I say,
Recite them aloud each night and day.
And know my princess for you I pray,
I’m here to serve you without delay.
