I speak to children about the consequences of bullying, but on this one particular day, a child came up to me and told me he loved me. I saw something in his eyes that moved, yet trouble me, and I came home and wrote this.


Necks crane as innocent eyes follow my every move.
Silent, enthralled children, a captive audience.
In the wake of their hushed response, I hear the echo of my own words.
Anticipation looms, awaiting an answer.
A solution, an explanation, I cannot provide.
I have let them down.
For I can only share my story, not repair the social injustice that has befallen them.
They are victims, as once was I.
With only my experience to offer, I silently pray to ease their anguish,
whilst knowing I cannot.

I'm saddened to see that your poems seemed to come to a halt in 2004. It seems to me that you are serving the children, making an impression and an impact on them with your honesty and love.
I want to look up your "Joyful Productions" site because I too am impressed with your bio and what you are trying to accomplish.
Sincerely,
Connie

I'm so glad you're not afraid to call it what it is 'bullying'. One cannot believe how violent children can get when they single out another child...

A profound message through the lines of "Awareness"
reaches this reader's inner mind.

An enajoyable mind's enriching reading in
"Awareness" abounds.

Never rest Your pen, Poet!

Methinks you are doing a hell of a lot more than you think, lady poet. God bless you for your work. Good work here on the poem as well.
Reviewed by Tami Ryan
Be careful not to sell yourself short, Patricia. We make an indelible impression upon children, even unknowingly sometimes. It so matters. Keep the faith and know that children and hearing and learning from you.

Blessings,
Tami
