YEARS AND YEARS AGO, by Molly Pendleton

There is this girl
I used to know

I knew her long ago
Years and years ago

I was rather rude
Crude and immature

Now I meet the girl from
Years and years ago

She's just so broken
A fractured shard of

That dorky but brave girl I picked on
Years and years ago

I can't help but think that
That I was a fraction of the crowd

That broke her down
Years and years ago

~Years and Years Ago, by Molly Pendleton
"This was inspired by all of the kids I knew in Elementary School but lost contact with in Middle School, and seeing how they’ve changed as we’ve entered High School. It was interesting and sometimes saddening to see how bullying has changed them over the years."
