Making others feel worthless is what you do best
Then you go and claim it was all a joke, a mere jest
But your words mean more than you comprehend
Your words can lose somebody their dearest friend

Your jokes have taken another young life away
Now the day is bleak and a cruel shade of grey
Know that to obtain your one little power trip
Your victim will feel as if they are being whipped

So the next time you feel the urge to tease or play
Be sure to always remember what happened this day
Your torment stole a family member and friend
And for the family, there will seem to be no end

Stop the bullying before another young life is stolen from us…
So...I learned today that a student at a local school committed suicide this morning. He was only fourteen years old. And he was bullied to the point where he couldn't take it anymore.

Kaci was fourteen when she attempted suicide. I wish somebody could have reached him in time too...

Please, stop the bullying...

Thank you very much for showing us an amazing poem with great moral to it. For all those people who've been hurt due to bullying....I hope the ones who still live won't end up like the ones who you've stated in your description.

We are people...not stones or "worthless dogs". This poem has an amazing impact and is eye-opening. Wonderful job :)

AWWWWWWWWW!! :iconrubcheeksplz: Thanks so much! It's been a pretty stressful and worrying week so your comment really means a lot. I posted this peom, as stated in the authors comments, that I wrote it after learning that a fourteen year old boy had killed himself because of bullying. I honestly can say I didn't expect to get so much feedback on it. But, again, thank you! And also, I love your icon.

My heart goes to those who come up against such cruelness.

I pray people will start to see and hear your message. The more people talk about it the more effect it has. Thank you for sharing :heart:

I agree to a point but I don't think that a bully should ever be killed for what they do. Even if it ends up that the bullied kills themselves.

Some teachers are educated about it. My mother is a teacher and when she learned that my little sisters teachers (she attempted suicide) didn't see the obvious signs that lead to her attempt, she was furious. So it's not parents and teachers in general that need to be more educated, it's everybody - teachers, parents, siblings, and fellow students. You know when a friend is not acting normal, be it depressed or just out of character. And if they ever mention that they want to kill themselves you need to talk to someone about it.

that is good, I'm glad that some grown ups cares. In my school or generaly teachers just didn't want to get involve in it, tahy just pretend like thay don't see anything. And perents always has excuse like thay are just kids... So here noone cares, I thought that I doing something wrong. So I'm so glad there is still normall ppl out there even I wish it becomes more seriusly when someone notice the signs...

Like I said, a lot of people do notice the signs. The problem is, people are afraid to tell adults that can help for fear of losing their friend.

My greatest shame: I stood on both sides...
Bullies are ignorant and not aware of what they do to others. I know when I was made aware of what I did, I hadn't noticed before. It was a slap in the face, thankfully before it was too late.
the big bully in my school class was way worse. he even blamed his victim and said he would be the real victim of the whole affair, because everybody else would be lying. alter i found out he used be bullied before he caqme into our class.
There was never a physical fight, the teachers didn't allow it. but words hurt, actions like stealing stuff, hiding or scattering in them the toilet, locking them away and such get the job done pretty easily as well.

This makes me want to cry and its an understatement that its sad that this is true and it happens... way too much. My second brother was bullied too, he has suicidal thoughts and has hatred that turns into aggression, and hates authority because he was punished for fighting back. Bullying either drives the victim to suicide or to retaliation.. why do you think there are all those shooting in schools happening? 12,13,14,15,16,17.. some don't even make it through that age. The worse thing? The bullies don't even realize it until after it happens, some heartlessly continue. Yes, please stop bullying :(...

The second person is always caught and the bully gets away with it, joyful because the victim got in trouble. Its a horrible circle that needs to be broken.

She may not, but you know that you were there. In your heart you know you have done right by her, and because she is your sister, well I know you would do it again. Also beneath it all, I am sure in her own way she does appreciate it and loves you for it.
