(This poem of mine was first featured in the international charity e-book project Inner Giant, aiming to fight bullying and abuse in any and all areas by raising the level of self-esteem. My story Active vs. Passive, featured in the new collection The Twisted Tales, a Readers Avenue Park publication featuring various authors, also deals with the topic of bullying and parenthood.)
