Poetry: “Mocking Bird”

This is a poem my daughter wrote back when she was 10 in 5th grade. It was written at a time when she was facing a lot of bullying, mainly from the principal at her school. The ending lines talks about a guardian angel. To me that angel comes in the form of NJCTS


The penetrating shrieks it makes, traps you in a horrible game of risk.
It’s toxic acid, spitefulness punches a disintegrating hole of misery
in your heart.
They travel in flocks, looking for victims to mock and tease.
Mocking, mocking always teasing.

Soon they chase you out of safety, crushing your self confidence
leaving you to cower in fear.
You set sail as an outcast in the ocean of loneliness.
Hoping your Guardian Angel will lift you up once more.
