Mindful Musings #60

Mindful Musings

Grade six

School yard taunts.

Children are horrible human beings

Who learn their behaviour from their parents.

Skinny dead bones! Skinny dead bones!

The cries are loud and I am compelled to respond.

Skinny dead bones! Skinny dead bones! 

This has become my name.

The taunts and jeers drown out my thoughts.

All those  years ago,

Yet I still remember.

I remember it as if I had been branded.

Skinny dead bones! Skinny dead bones!
