Special Poem By A Special Friend

A Special Friend Sent Me This Poem

It would be lovely if everyone treated everyone else how they would like to be treated…but we know they don’t.  People become a victim of bullying if they appear to be different or if they appear weaker than others….emotionally and physically. There would certainly be a lot less social anxiety problems if everyone was kind in nature. Well I received a poem from a very special friend today. It made me sad to think that a young girl, with so much love in her heart and just wanting acceptance from others, has to suffer the cruelty and bullying of others.

Lauren's Autograph


I know it goes on and I have accepted my fair share of bullying over the years too. I immediately was reminded of my own mother’s life lessons to me as a young girl.

She taught me to say things to other people that I would like to hear in return and she taught me to treat others with love and respect.

Perhaps it would be a perfect world if everyone did those two simple actions every day…but unfortunately we know that it is not a perfect world.

Suffering from an anxiety disorder seems to open a door for others to feel as though they have the right to pass judgement on you.

After all they are ‘normal’ aren’t they?

Anyway, you read this beautiful poem for yourself…

A Special Ed Student

Just because I’m in Special Ed,
It doesn’t mean you have to turn your head.

Staring at my class and me,
To see if we are different as can be.

In the hall I hear a name,
Hurting my feelings.

Aren’t we the same?

I feel angry and I feel sad ,
When I get made fun of it makes me mad.

I want you all know we are all special in school,
If everyone got along that would be Cool!

She should win an award for that poem! Well you know what…she did! I am very proud of her! I also asked her if I could have her signature…because I wanted her autograph.

After reading this poem, it made me glad that I am not normal! I would rather be in a ‘Special Ed Class’ with people like this young lady than in a world full of people filled with ridicule, hatred and criticism. No wonder so many people (like myself) suffer with social anxiety and become the victims of bullies.

Please let this beautiful young lady know how special she is in the comments below!

About Jennifer Johnson

I suffered with social anxiety and stress for years. I discovered what my triggers were and learned to control them. Hopefully some of the natural anxiety relief techniques I have tried, will also be your solution.


  1. You are SPECIAL… in a really wonderful, amazing, beautiful way…just like me, my husband and my little boys and all the best people in the world. Everyone who recognises their own and other peoples areas where whey need help or support…everyone who tries to treat other people in a way which will make them feel happy…. they are all special. The world needs more, more, more of us. Feel sorry for those who judge you…it’s their loss and them whos lives will be the poorer for focusing on superficial and shallow things.

  2. … as i readed this poem, i could imagine every sentence.. and i recognised what hidden treasures everyone carries… even in their worries..and i saw so much tenderness, kindness..a longing… to be one with others no matter what.. this kind of conation is the glue of mankind…thats the meaning of faith for me.. 🙂 thank you for those words..

  3. Lauren, is a very special girl. If everyone had a heart like hers our world would be so much better I’m glad we are friends! 🙂
