Declined to answer

A little boy doesn’t return to school today

because kids kept bullying his shoes

Not thinking what it took for him to get

up and return to school.

Facing a punishment

so ugly and cruel.

A decline to answer said by the school

leaving his parents to heal their own wounds.

Leaving the teachers scratching their heads

like what could we do instead.

Another one lost,

because of bullying in school.

The anger and violence will be a memory

too, of a life that ended too soon.
