Answer to Monday's Riddle! A Broken Bully

Enbrethiliel got it! Yes, the answer to the riddle is bully. Lizzy and I are both very familiar with this term and the people who choose to act as such. It's always amazing to me how quickly a bully will back down if you simply don't lend them your energy. For what I can measure, it seems as if they are missing something really important, like attention or comfort, possibly love or admiration. I find that if you look behind the nasty words and violent reactions, the real person is in there- praying for you to hear them. But then again, I also realize that some people are just mean and accept this as a fact. I try to stay out of their way as much as possible : )  ~ F

Just like a circus clown, I will shout you out, then shove you down. I  sneer, as they laugh and jeer. I seem big and bad, but small and sad. With words, I cut you deep. With hands, it's anger that I reap. I am a mad queen cutting off heads, a lost, little girl trying out beds; a super villain of hate, a scared, small boy taking the bait. You have power over me, if you just dare to see. My weapon is your gift of fear- without it, I wouldn't even draw near.

What am I? Answer: A Bully

  3. How did I miss this one? It must be the after-glow of the A to Z Challenge that muffled my brain. Oh well, onward!
