Telling



Angry
He would walk
Up to me
Get all close.

“What did you say?”
“You were tackling him”
I feel compelled to run
And hide
But don’t

I stand my ground
But look down
Showing some bravery anyhow...
He puffed out his chest

He sneers and glares between his eyebrows
I want to run
But don’t
As my body closes in

I hear
 A yell from behind
“What are you doing?”
And relief washes over me
As he steps back

Thank god for people
Who stand up
for one another
because anger and fear
can be scary

You told
Because you did
The right thing....
Telling

I walk away quickly
as the recess monitor
Doesn’t do much
Just a 
“Don’t do that”
