When I was in 9th grade

I sat at the front

of the class.


Most kids thought I did

this to show how smart

I was. Others because

 I was better than them.

 And a few because I

wanted to be

the teachers pet.


The truth is because I

couldn't see the chalk board.


I lied to my parents

and teachers. "I see fine

I don't need glasses."


I refused to wear glasses

because I didn't want to

give my classmates another

reason to bully me.


Now that I'm an adult

I don't tolerate bullies.

And if someone tries to

bully me I give them

the middle finger,

(At least in my mind).

This transmits accurately the feelings of persecution felt by a child who wears glasses being subjected to having stones cruelly thrown at her in the form of "goggles!"and"four eyes!" Well done.
