Maddison Graf, Grade 5, Floraville Public School
The road is long, the days are short.
We go to school so things like this we can be taught.
Mum said life is not easy, I am 9 and I know it can make you queasy.
I am learning to be strong being bullied is hard,
It can leave you broken and leave you scared.
I have found not everyone is bad,
My new friends are the best thing I have ever had.
Don't bully anyone as you don't always see the tears,
You can destroy a person and leave them in tangles for years.
Now together we sparkle and shine as friends,
And being bullied has finally come to an end.
