Bullying Poem

So throughout the day you see people getting bullied. Even I have been bullied. But nobody really does anything to stop it, just look at the news of how many people have committed suicide because of being bullied. I do not want any more dying because people cannot stop from being mean. My English teachers favorite saying is "mean people suck" and that is true. So the next time you see somebody being bullied step in. Don't stay silent.

I heard about the girl on the news that killed herself due to being bullied. I was once bullied, until I stood up. That's why, if I ever see this Emily, I'd just want to say "thank you."...

Should've, Could've, Would've

©

Published: June 2012

I should've, could've, would've;
Done something about that day,
If only I had known it ended this way.
I am not proud to tell you
How I stood there and watched;
He was so big and scary
Was all that I thought.

I couldn't, wouldn't, shouldn't,
get involved at all.
I say to myself;
It's none of my business;
As I turn and walk down the hall.

I hear on the news;
'bout this kid who had died
It tells of his woe;
The day of his suicide

They talk about how he locked himself
inside of his room
All to have shot himself to forget all the pain.

Now as I walk through my school
I hear the laughter
But see the fear
In their eyes plainly after
And I know what their thought could easily be
They think to themselves "what if it was me"

I could've done something,
I could've told someone,
I would've, if I hadn't been so afraid.

Now I stand here promising
If I ever see,
This scary and sad sight again
I will change my should've, could've, would've
Into have, done, and did.

I just want to say thank you to Emily for writing this amazing heart wrenching poem. I lost two people I loved this August to suicide and one dictated by bullying. I have written two papers this year on bullying had have used this poem as a source in both. You are an amazing and very talented person to be able to see bullying the way you. Every member of the general public should have to read this poem. Thank you again for not only writing but sticking up for those who aren't only silenced in school but silenced forever.

My friend tried unsuccessfully to kill herself (thank god) due to bullying. I stood up for her and got bullied because of it and I don't regret it made me feel good and I help her. She no longer gets teased or bullied because I was there for her, stood up for her and got her help, by asking teachers and family. The poem you have written is really good, and it's got all the meaning behind the reason I stood up for her every time they tormented her.
