Katie | 44 comments I wrote this when I realized how much bullying goes on at my school and I didn't even realize it..

Now, would you want that done to you?
What could you ever have to prove?
Your fun and games keep your ego safe,
but is it worth taking their's away?
Do you realize you could send someone's world,
crashing down, or pick them up with just one word?
well, we didn't think your 'joke' was all that funny.
Are you happy now, honey?

message 7: by [deleted user] (new)

I went to the bathroom at my school, during classes and their was only one girl in the stalls. She was crying, so I asked if she was alright.

We all have times when we just want to be alone and just cry and right now that's what I'm feeling....

"Life isn't perfect"...... Damn, I hate that quote. Such is life though.

I love your poem.

Bullying goes on in practically every school and it's gotten really bad. Me, personally, don't get bullied but I get that snide comment every now and then. But it's Karma and I try to stay true to myself and let people think what they think about me. They're probably just bored, envious, or have feel insecure and by pointing out other people's insecurities it will make them feel better.


Teasing -> Bullying -> Depression -> Potential Harm to oneself.

Hey. I hate to be a nag but one of the group rules is no cussing and I would like it if we kept it that way. Please don't take it personally though ;)

It's okay ;) thanks. I just feel like cussing doesnt get us anywhere with emotions ;)

It doesn't, I agree. But sometimes in the moment you just fell your emotions taking a dramatic toll on you and you just feel like letting out your anger on everyone.

Emotions are very fragile and they can change drastically but we've got to find some kind of balance.

I know, I have that feeling, but anger is a powerful emotion and thereby has to be controlled and just have to think to yourself that 'i dont care what people think about me'.

Bullying is mainly for ego boosts and some people find satisfaction in lowering someone else's self esteem.

message 20: by Grouphug (new)

Grouphug heres what I wrote about bullying:
Hate looking at my refection in the mirrors
‘Cause of you
Hate going out alone
‘Cause of you
Hate this world and hate me too
‘Cause of you
Hate, hate, hate
‘Cause of you
Suicidal thinking, slashes across the wrists, head banging and heart thumping
‘Cause of you
Hate living, afraid to trust, scared of shadows.
‘Cause of you
Lonely, in a bubble, crying
‘Cause of you
Your words, taunts, sneers
How do you think they make me feel?
I feel unloved and unwanted
‘Cause of you
Are you sorry
Will you be when i am gone?
You make me who i am now
Scared to be
Belittling what confidence I had in me
Making my minor differences stand out in a crowd.
Can’t be like one of you anymore
I’m through
‘Cause of you
Selfish and weak
‘Cause what I had was taken from me
By you
‘Cause of you
I’m nobody now. Happy?
I am the freak.
Nothing left to defend.
I don’t believe.
‘Cause of you.
Thank you.
Don’t want to be a survivor.
Talk of my suicide trial later.
I want to be free.
Want this pain to end now.
Want this agony, torment over.
Can't live another day
Like a mechanical robot.
‘Cause of you.
You bullied the goodness out of me.
I will never be one of you.
Oh no, not now, it’s too late.
‘Cause of you.
Everyone’s eyes are on me.
I can scream and no one will hear me.
I cannot remove this face, this personality.
This curse
‘Cause of you.
I am int his strait jacket of emotional stress.
‘Cause of you.
Hear a whisper and know it’s about me.
Look in the mirror.
Can’t see - what is it about me - that makes you whisper?
Think I can see
Why you all hate me.
I’ll try to change.
Do you want to be popular, well known?
The dog that won’t stop barking -
Is that me
or
Is that you?
I am not immune
‘Cause of you.
Same day on a loop.
One abusive relationship to another
Without hope
and with hate.
Breathe fire.
I live and breathe and you hate me for doing that.
it’s my fault. I know, I know.
Hope - some foreign genius.
Another Saturday night alone in my room.
’Cause of you.
This is the only way -
You despise me.
I have come to my own conclusions.
Don’t fit in. You won’t let me.
Forgotten what happy is?
Is this happy?
Am I already happy?
This doubt
‘Cause of you
My life is a fight.
Hate leaving the warm comfort of my bed.
Run out of energy. My own determination.
Laugh at me, if you want
‘Cause I won’t be here for long.
If it makes you look tougher, smarter, feel better.
Then go on beat me.
There’s nothing left that isn’t already bruised
‘Cause of you.
Call me fat, ugly and laugh at my clothes.
Make me feel worse with your words.
I am told I am worth ten of you
and I don’t think so.
I am nobody. I am a freak. I have accepted this.
‘Cause of you
I’m giving in
You’ll find me hanging
Find me gone
Death is the only comfort left.
will you be sorry.
when my mum finds me hanging.

I'm going to be honest and admit that I'm crying right now.

I'd like to say that I'm sorry and I hope things get better for you.

I'm very sorry.

I know how you feel. I think the same thing most days.

I hate it.

Wow, that has to be the most emotional, most honest and close to the heart poem I've ever read. I'm speechless. You are a great writer and I feel many can relate to what you're feeling. I'd love to read any of your other poems.
