Bullycide!

The number of children ending their lives because they can no longer stand the emotional and/or physical pain of being bullied, is growing every day. Bullying awareness is an important discussion that needs to be taught in every classroom. We have to help protect our children from this growing epidemic.

Please Listen

Please listen to the wind at night
You’ll hear from those who died,
The cry you hear is from the one
You killed by suicide.

You had to make them feel so bad
You had to make them fall,
Please listen to the wind at night
It’s you who they now call.

They want to know why you did this
Did they hurt you some way?
Please listen to the wind at night
It’s you for whom they pray.

Why could you not just let them be
Did you want them to die?
Please listen to the wind at night
They want to ask you why.

Why does a person want to be
A bully and a foe?
Please listen to the wind at night
They have a right to know.

They also want to help you see
Your words became their knife,
Please listen to the wind at night
It’s you who stole their life.

Please listen to the wind at night
You’ll hear their final plea,
They hope that you will kill no more
And just let others be.
