Suicide or Murder? Think about it!

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

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!”

Present Or Not, You Are Guilty!

At the end of a school day, some children go home and play. Unfortunately, others go home and make life-ending decisions. When a child chooses to die because they are being bullied, it is bullycide. The bully does not always have to be present to be guilty of this crime. The pain of being bullied lingers on, and for some, it becomes too much to bear. If you choose to hurt someone with your words, or with your actions, keep in mind that little by little, you just might be killing them!bully-655660_640

Because Of You!

The little girl you brought to tears
Because she is obese,
Went home and hung herself tonight
You helped her life to cease!

The boy you picked on during lunch
Did not know what to do,
So he left school to end it all
He died because of you!

The kid you beat up just last week
Because you don’t like gay,
Popped all the pills that he could find
You took his life away!

The child that lived up the street
Went home and cut his wrist,
He could not face another week
Of bruises from your fist!

The teen you bullied yesterday
Because she’s in a chair,
Will lay to rest on Saturday
You made her life unfair!

How many kids will have to die
Because of all your mean?
No matter what, you killed them all
With crimes that were not seen!

You probably will not be charged
For all your bully times,
But in the end, you’ll have to pay
For He knows of your crimes!

So bully, please do think of this
The next time that you fight,
The kids you hurt in school today
Might end their lives tonight!

Though you’re not with them when they die
This fact is still quite true,
The kids you choose as bully bait
Might die because of you!

Bullies Kill!

The new school year is upon us. Unfortunately, for some children, it brings nothing but fear and shame. They know that they will, once again, have to deal with being bullied. We need to be on high alert and make sure that our children are safe! Please, if you suspect that your child is being bullied, or that your child is a bully, do something about it! They need our help! This is the only way to put an end to bullycide!

A Message From Above!

It is so important for children to understand that suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. You cannot undo ending your life. However, you can, with the help of others, put an end to bullying. It is not easy, but it is worth fighting through. You, the one being bullied, are worth fighting for! Please, do not give up!

From My Cloud

Hello to all of you down there
I’m speaking from my cloud,
Please listen very carefully
I’ll try to say this loud!

A bully took my life away
He made my days pure hell,
The things he said cut through my skin
And pierced my inner shell!

There was no need for physical
He knew his words would kill,
For putting other people down
Was truly, his one skill!

From up here I can see that he
Has new kids on his list,
And if we let him carry on
Then soon they won’t exist!

I wish to share what I have learned
Since I left life on Earth,
No one can tell you you’re not great
And take away your worth!

You have to realize who you are
And what your life could be,
If you would stand up for yourself
And not give up, like me!

A bully should not rule your world
And make you want to cry,
A bully should not put you down
So much, you choose to die!

If I could have a second chance
To redo what I did,
I’d stay on Earth and fight it out
Prove I’m the stronger kid!

In time the bully will fade out
A broken man he’ll be,
And if I would have chose to live
I’d be amazing me!

I let one person make me feel
That I did not belong,
But let me tell you, now I know
My feelings were quite wrong!

So if you face a bully boy
Or bully girl this year,
Remember to stand up to them
And prove you have no fear!

For you are so much greater than
The person that they are,
And you will see, as life goes on
They’ll fail, you’ll be a star!

For The Bullies!

To bullies everywhere…this is how you make people feel! Wake up and realize the impact of your words and actions! Please, do not commit bullycide! No one should want to die because of something you do or say.

sweet-1966033_640Sweet Sixteen 

Today I’m turning sweet sixteen
A very special day,
A fancy dress for party time
My life is great, I say!

My friends will meet me to get set
We’ll help each other out,
Do makeup, hair, and manicures
A perfect time, no doubt!

The limo then will pick us up
And take us out to play,
Great food and fun and lots of laughs
We’ll dance the night away!

I just woke up from this great dream
Unsure of what to do,
The doctors say I might not live
It’s all because of you!

You see, last night I tried to die
And stop the pain I feel,
A fifth of vodka with some pills
This was my final meal!

The torment that you put me through
Has now destroyed my life,
Your words and actions were the same
As if you used a knife!

Today I’m turning sweet sixteen
A very special day,
Because of you I might not live
Congrats, you got your way!

Parents & Teachers Unite!

I was once asked to write a poem expressing how hard it is for a parent to get help from school officials when a child is being bullied. Bullying awareness grows every day. However, some people still do not take it seriously. This has to change. Children should not be tormented…and they should definitely not want to die.

One Less Smile

I sent my child to school today
No worries in my head,
But in her room I found a note
“Tomorrow I’ll be dead!”

The sadness that came over me
Made my heart fill with tears,
The bullies started up again
Just like in other years!

A boy had told some awful lies
And spread them with a tweet,
While he felt like a macho man
My daughter took the heat!

The friends she had soon disappeared
While bullies took her down,
It got so bad, we had to move
And find a different town!

I tried to get some help at school
But all they did was laugh,
The principal said, “Let it go
And do not bother staff!”

I knew I could not let it go
This was my daughter’s life,
“Dear Principal, if my kid dies
Your blood is on the knife!”

I heard that not too long ago
A boy from that school died,
And at his grave the teachers stood
So filled with guilt, they cried!

They now realize how wrong they were
They should have done much more,
A child should depend on them
Not seek out Heaven’s door!

So when my girl comes home today
I’ll hug her very tight,
She’ll know that she is not alone
Together we will fight!

The truth is that I need some help
Can’t do this all alone,
So teachers, admin, principals
Please help, do not condone!

If you standby and don’t step in
And go that extra mile,
Tomorrow when you start your class
There might be one less smile!

Too Many Lives Lost!

Bullying, in some cases, is murder! There are too many children that cannot face another day of being tormented so instead, they choose to die. We need stricter penalties for bullies and anti-bullying awareness should be mandatory in every school.

Dear Mom And Dad

Dear mom and dad I miss you both
I’m sorry that I died,
But all the hurt and fear I felt
Destroyed me deep inside!

I wish I could have stayed with you
Much longer than I did,
But bully had a different plan
To murder your sweet kid

Some folks think it was suicide
That ended it for me,
But murder is what bully did
And yet, he still walks free!

Too many of us up here now
We do not understand,
The bullies shot their words at us
The gun was in their hand!

Yet every day they’re free to go
And find more kids to hate,
If bullies are not stopped right now
More kids will meet our fate!

Oh mom and dad please listen hard
I hope you hear my voice,
I really did not want to die
But felt I had no choice!

For every day I was in pain
Deep sadness in my soul,
When bully picked me as his bait
My torment was his goal!

The kids that share a cloud with me
Want you to waste no time,
On earth there needs to be a law
“TO BULLY IS A CRIME!”

Dear mom and dad I love you both
I miss you every day,
Please help to change the laws on earth
So other kids will stay!

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.

Suicide Is Devastating!

When a person chooses suicide, they feel as if they have no other way out. To them, they are ending the pain they have, whether it be physical or emotional. The people left behind are the ones who now suffer. Please remember, their goal was not to hurt their loved ones, but rather to put an end to the darkness they felt deep within their soul.

In Your Heart

Please understand what I have done
And don’t be mad at me,
Although I love you all so much
On Earth, I could not be!

I could not cope with all the pain
It was too much to bear,
And though I felt my choice was right
For you, it was not fair!

I left you with so many thoughts
And questions as to why,
There are no answers and no blame
It was my choice to die!

Please do not cry or carry guilt
You had no way to know,
That for some time this was my plan
I knew I had to go!

There’s nothing that you could have done
Deep down you know it’s true,
I wanted to leave pain behind
Not thinking I’d leave you!

Right now I really need your help
Please let go of your sad,
And know that God is here with me
He does not think I’m bad!

For sometimes we get lost in life
And darkness blocks our view,
Though now I’m here and see the light
My death I can’t undo!

So wipe your tears and celebrate
Remember me with glee,
And when you miss me, hold your heart
For that is where I’ll be!
