Stop Bullying  

You won’t be my friend

You don’t like to help

You call me names

I cry to myself

You won’t let me play

When I do - you moan

You make fun of me

I feel all alone

No more being mean

This silliness ends

Can we play together?

I want to be friends

Enough of the teasing

No more of the names

We are all God’s children

We’re all made the same
