Advice on if this essay topic is okay?

Hi everyone,

Basically, my idea for an essay is about when, as a new kid in middle school, I got caught up in a group of mean kids. It's about how I was a bystander and didn't do anything and just watched as other kids were bullied and how much I really regret that and how it changed me as a person. The "gimmick" (if you can even call it such) of the essay is that I compare myself to an inanimate plant in my room the whole time.

Is this a good idea for an essay? I know it may seem like I was complicit in an act of bullying and such which is the reason I'm hesitating. Personally, I think my essay has a good character arc and ends with good things, (what I would say to those that were bullied as I watched, how I still remember them, and how the memory made me join student ambassadors in high school, etc). Let me know what you think. Thanks for reading!

    Inanimate plant?
    Don't write about middle school. Adcoms will be reviewing you as a high school kid. Don't startle them with something odd. Do show them the traits they want to see, relevant to college life.
