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!!
