When a child commits suicide, it is often because they thought they had no choice. If the suicide was due to unrelenting bullying, in my humble opinion, the bully, or bullies as the case may be, committed murder! Remember, words can cut like a knife!
My Last Goodbye
Today I had to say goodbye
And close his casket door,
His bully got the best of him
And he could take no more!
He really tried to stay around
And make it through this year,
But every day was just the same
He tired of the fear!
My child was a special kid
Who had so much to give,
He would have helped to make the world
A better place to live!
I hope his bully feels the pain
That now lives in my soul,
If murder was his game of choice
Then he has reached his goal!
I hope he knows just what he did
And how he took a life,
I hope he knows his words were cruel
And acted like a knife!
I know he was not present when
My child’s life was done,
But still, he’s guilty just the same
As if he shot the gun!
On earth he’ll get away with this
It’s fact, most bullies do,
But in the end he’ll have to pay
Because He knows what’s true!
I’m bitter now and full of grief
But for this boy I’ll pray,
“Dear God please make his meanness end
So more don’t come your way!”
