A poem to share by Alfie Reay

Some Noise,

Stand up, 

Don’t be shy, 

Speak out, 

Don’t cry. 

When bullying occurs, 

It’s like a scary ride, 

Don’t you know

It hurts inside. 

Your happy feelings, 

Sadly die, 

When you don’t want to wave them, 

A hurtful goodbye. 

Make some noise, 

And stop this disaster, 

Make some noise, 

And see what happens after. 

You’re shy, 

You cry, 

All you do is look in the sky 

You wish, 

For a fish, 

To be your best friend. 

You need to speak, 

It’s time to tell, 

And hopefully, 

It will all work well. 

The bullies call you, 

A lot of names, 

But I’ve noticed, 

It’s always you who gets the blame. 

Make some noise, 

And stop this disaster, 

Make some noise, 

And see what happens after. 

They always say, 

You’re in with the losers, 

Your mother asks, 

Why have you got bruises.
