As She Wonders

A cut of the wrist as she her pain is now obvious

The red blood pours out as she lays motionless

Another burn to her arm to let her know she’s a victim

To societies definition of perfection

She now wonders if anyone would miss if she dies

Wonders why she has no shoulder for the tears that she cries

She wonders if her life is a mere waste of time

Why should she go on living a life full of grime?

And as the “popular” girls let her know she’s a freak

Her self esteem loses another strand and she becomes weak

No one cares who she is, or what she likes to do

She’s only know as the girl to hurl insults to

And her parents don’t take the time to ask how if she is ok

Or take part in her life before she is gone away

The day that they find her, they all had no clue

That the neglect and torment would all tear through

And now she took her own life to get rid of the pain

The laughs, the stares, the thousands of hurtful names

Another lost soul, a victim to hate

When will it be enough? When will it dissipate?

It’s becoming harder to be accepted by many

They’ll call you ugly, stupid, to fat or to skinny

How many lives are lost to suicide?

The only peace these victims know is when they die

This speaks so stunningly of the sin of bullying....of treating our fellow-humans with disregard and bias.....Suicide is an act of final desperation, expression of total emptiness....that should never ever have to be! Thank you for this lovely, heart-touching Poem. UP+++

Great poem on a terrible subject. Anyone can be a victim of bullies. There's always something they'll find to torment with. A fat girl will starve herself to loose the weight only to find the bully begins to pick on her nose or chest size... As parents its our job to do the best we can to make sure our children are comfortable with themselves and understand that bullying isn't necessarily against them but just a way for the bully to act out. It's also important to raise your children so they don't bully others. No parent should loose a child to bullying! Voted up!!
