Bullying Poem

Watch Your Words

This is not from personal experience; it's from what I've witnessed in my dreadful school years. The catch is, you don't know the truth about anyone. You don't know exactly what they are feeling. Think before you speak to prevent suicide due to bullying. A smile can hide 1000 frightful truths. Smile at people who look like they're having a rough day.

See Those People

See that girl,
The one with the smile?
Do you know she's been hurting for a while?

See that boy?
Yeah, he's so cool!
Is that how he appears to be at school?

See that girl,
With that group alongside?
Do you know she considered suicide?

See that boy?
He seems so alive!
But every day he struggles to survive.

See those people?
All victims of hate.
Watch your words before it's too late.

I have thought about suicide and got everything ready, but I thought, "They can't win this battle." I've gotten pills, scissors, all sorts of stuff. I cut myself. I harm. There are always rumors everywhere I walk. Home is a prison. I feel secure when it's only my mom, my sister, and me. When my dad comes, he hits me, calls me words, tells me he loves someone else more than me. I cry, pull my hair out, and hit my head on the walls. I make wishes saying, "Please stop. Leave me alone." I hate every second every day of my life. I get called all kinds of names. I've cyber bullied because I've felt like they should feel the same pain as me. I don't know what to do in life. I won't tell my mom because she wouldn't understand. Just make it stop. I can't make friends. What do I do in life? What am I worth in life?

I feel the same way but my dad doesn't hurt me now. Please don't kill yourself. It's not your fault. It's their fault, I will be your friend if you want just don't hurt yourself.

Everyday I look at myself and think... "Why can't I be skinny?" I hate that everyday people think I'm okay when I'm really not. I'm hurting inside and no one sees it. It hurts that no one cares and they just see a happy girl. Deep inside I'm not happy. I cry myself to sleep everynight thinking everything is going to be alright, but in reality it's not. I miss my family, and most of all my MOM. I wish I never was adopted. I hate my life and I hate myself. I always think suicide is the only option, but I always think, "Is it worth my life ending?" I know it's not though, so I just suck in the hurt and deal with it.
