Speak Up

LOOK WHAT PICTURE I FOUND???????

Speak Up

*********************

Fueled by their own fear and ignorance

A bully can come in any shape or size

attacking those they don’t understand

  abusing and overpowering those they despise

~

Toxic words and deeds load their guns

while their hearts spew molten lava of hate

Intolerant of those who disagree with them

and seeking out the gentle to shove and berate

~

How many lives have hung by a hopeless rope

woven of strands of isolation and rejection

because no one had the courage to speak up

thinking the risk was not their obligation?

I took these pictures of the Sea Lions at Fanny Bay, Vancouver Island.

They were a happy and noisy bunch.

But there was one that the others seemed to dislike.

It looked like a classic case of bullying.
