124: Bully by Eric Olsen

My high school bully committed suicide.

I felt relief before I felt guilty.

His ghost still bullying me.


Wish I could go back and do something

Say something


But even with hindsight

I still don’t know what I would say


And part of me doesn’t want to save him anyway.



Think about how the poem made you feel. Are there people in your life whom you find it so hard to root for? Those who you want to feel love for, but find it so hard to do?

May you live out another beautiful poem in the collection of your life today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
