Stop Bullying Poems

Bullying has caused so much damage over the years. It has caused depression and even suicides. To bully is to show cowardice. A bully puts others down, usually with their words and actions, judging them. Sadly, this only reveals who the bully is: a person who puts others down to feel better about themselves. Bullying can destroy a person emotionally. It is foolish and dangerous. If you are a victim of bullying, don't keep it a secret. Get help. You deserve to know just how many people have been in your situation and are on your side of the battle.

41 School Poems about Confronting Bullying

  1. 1. All I Ask

    • By Caitlin Dwyer
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems September 2015

    I was a bully as a child. I was mean and hateful. As I grew older, I looked back at what I'd done, and I was horrified at the devastation I had left in my path. The words I said had faded away, but the scars were forever burned on those people. I wrote this poem from the perspective of those I've hurt. It was a way for me to feel a small piece of what they had felt back then and I could finally taste, for even just a moment, the bitterness of my words.

    I'm sorry I don't impress you,
    Don't act the way you want.
    I'm sorry I'm not pretty
    And don't have much to flaunt.

    I was bullied in the 7th grade because people did not know how to deal with my opinion on what I thought of my now ex-best friend. Soon after that, they started to bully my sister because she...

  3. 2. Wounding Words

    • By Martine Indroy
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems January 2021

    I wrote this poem after I had been bullied by different students for 5 years. I started experiencing flashbacks and anxiety attacks from those horrible events at school. I wrote this poem to express my feelings, but more importantly to show how important it is for teachers and students to take bullying seriously, here focusing on verbal bullying. Hurtful comments can remain with a person for years and crush their self-esteem. Bullying is not something that anyone should have to go through.

    Living in fear, day in and day out,
    "Leave me alone," I just want to shout.
    When you call me names like stupid and fool,
    I don't understand, why are you so cruel?

  5. 3. Closed Doors

    • By Jane Kirby
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems November 2011

    All my life, I have been bullied by the same people. I have been beaten up, mugged and called names. I have resorted to writing down my feelings. I feel people need to know exactly what I've been through.

    I cry myself to sleep at night
    Just wishing it would stop.
    Maybe tomorrow it will cease.
    Then again, maybe not.

  6. 4. High School Soldier

    • By Kierra B.
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems November 2016

    This is to everyone who has been bullied. I have been through it, and I know what it's like. I know the feeling of sadness, depression, loneliness, and pain. NEVER attempt or even think of suicide! Killing yourself doesn't end the pain; it passes it on to others. You'll only let them win with your suicide! Those idiots who hurt you will pay the price of their doings. Trust me, they will! Smile, keep your head up high, and kill them with kindness. It kills them when you do this! Stay strong!

    Every day when you come through the doors,
    You are entering the high school war,
    Where you will be shot at with words that could kill.
    They are thrown without any rightful skill.

  7. 5. See Those People

    • By Amy
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems August 2012

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

  8. 6. False Identity

    • By Erin
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2016

    I may only be a young teen, but I have created a false identity. It started in first grade. Everybody was picked on, so I became a stone. I didn't care about anything or anyone. Now nobody messes with me, but I want people to love me for me. I am older now, so I realize that not all people want to hurt you, but people only know my false identity.

    Sometimes
    I wish that you could see
    This scared girl inside of me.
    I'm not really as I seem.

  9. 7. The Forgotten Ones

    • By Corrina H.
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2014

    I'm not good with this sort of thing, but I'll try. In elementary school, I had the typical bully problems. The rumors, getting shoved around a lot, etc. When I reached middle school, it got worse. The thing that hurt the most though was when they would just ignore me. At least whenever they picked on me I was acknowledged somewhat. But their silence is what got to me the most. Some of them have actually grown up and gotten over themselves, but there are still a few. I'm better than them. So are you.

    I am the voice of those afraid to speak,
    Those of us society calls weak,
    Those you ridicule every day,
    The ones who have nothing to say.

    Even when you go through so much, you can always pick yourself up. This is my story in the form of poetry, a way for me to let go. With this poem, my hope is that others can relate to it and find a place of peace to forgive your past but not forget since it is what makes you stronger.

    That girl who sat by herself
    That girl who doubted herself
    That girl who was bullied

  12. 10. Words Hurt

    • By Kaylynn
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems August 2012

    I made this poem because I wanted to show how I felt about bullying. Some of my close friends were bullied, and I wanted everyone to know what it's like to be bullied.

    You should know, bullying hurts.
    It starts with one word, one word you blurt.
    Fat, ugly, worthless. These are the words they hear.
    Did you know you're their biggest fear?

  14. 12. The Kid In The Back Of The Class

    • By Nick
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems March 2009

    This is not a poem about rage and hatred. It's about the cruel behavior in our youth and how people can only take so much before being pushed over the edge. It's about not only blaming the perpetrator for school shootings but also the ones who fueled it.

    The kids pointed and the kids laughed
    at the young man that sat in the back of the class.

  15. 13. Sticks And Stones

    • By Lanna M
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems August 2017

    The reason behind this poem is because I see people every day at my school getting bullied, and I just wanted to let everyone know that you're not alone and not let what people say bring you down. You can't stop people from bullying, just like you can't stop people from killing people, but you can stand up for yourself.

    Your words, they cut like knives,
    but they'll never bring me down.
    You may push me in the deep end,
    but I will never drown.

    • By Juliana
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems October 2018

    This is a poem I wrote in school after someone anonymously posted terrible things to a girl in my grade and told her to kill herself.

    When you feel you're in the dark,
    There will always be a light.
    There are people who are there for you
    To tell you it's all right.
