Right Back Under

He crawled right back under again
Like a tiny crab amongst unfeeling boulders
The bullies looked down upon him
And he accepted his inferiority 
He felt comfort in hiding away
Right under their noses
He would sneak day by day
It made him feel smart and even strong
He could stay under the crevices
For God knows how long!

    I've never been bullied, but I've had this little pride about myself, growing up. Being able to hide away, unnoticed by people for long periods of time. This poem expresses a little bit more realistic resilience towards bullying.... though bullying is no child's game, but a real issue! I loved your thoughts in this...

    This is an ouch! Bullies need to be beaten! Frustrating to watch, is it not? And there is no shortage of bullies these days.
