False Allegations...Changed My World

Bullying affects many..at all stages of life...

How and why did this happen ? I now am questioning myself....
How and why did this happen ? I now am questioning myself.... | Source

Bullying isn't always a physical act....


I thought by ignoring you....

That you would get the message....

That I am not the least bit interested....

In getting to know you better....

Stories that I heard from others at school....

Made me decide to use the " bully " rule....

Adults said walk away and ignore....

That's what we 're told will end this war....

For the past two years you’ve invaded my space....

Of which I've tried to ignore at every trace....

Then out of the blue....

You accused me of bullying you ?....

What were you thinking ?

Did you not know what it would do to the world I knew..

People stared and whispered my name..

Questioned my reputation, it will never be the same...

I did nothing to you to cause you grief....

You have many issues is my belief....

You are making it hard for others....

When a victim is real and does accuse....

Cause people tend to question the allegations of abuse....

I hope one day you’ll see the error of your ways....

And never hurt another kid....

With your cruel intentions as you just did....


*This is a very serious matter that is often misunderstood and we are told to ignore....which is hard when you are the victim of one of fastest growing crimes in the world... Parents get involved in your child's school...and their life... .perhaps we can terminate this issue... and end the many victims who choose to end it by death...

This is a great poem, kj, and it's so true, too!!!! I had to deal with bullies a lot when I was in school and mother used to tell me to walk away and ignore them, like you said in your poem above. However, like you also said, it's hard to ignore them when you're the victim. A lot of times, I would stand up to them but it didn't do any good.

Things are so much different now than they were when I was in school and parents really do need to take a stand!!!!

This breaks my heart to no end when I hear of such going on. It seems the children are starting younger and getting meaner too!

If a parent gets a report that his or her own child is bullying, steps should be taken right away to get that child some help to stop it immediately, as there is a reason they are doing it, or either the world, even children, are just plain mean nowadays.

I pray for my grandchildren everyday about such, as one will be starting school this year and the thought of something like this happening to any of them, I just cannot bear it.

Voted up +++ and sharing

God bless, Faith Reaper

Bullying can destroy a child through many aspects and one shouldn't be quiet about it.

Faith Reaper...I agree wholeheartedly that steps should be taken...however..be aware that many schools due to " ratings" don't want to admit to the problem, as " there were only a few incidents "...and no record of incident ! I personally feel there should be someone in every school that can address a situation, preferably a teacher. Thank you for your comments...

kathyjoes1952...you are welcome ..yes it is sad when it is easier for society to turn its head rather than to actually address an issue.

DDE..you are correct..damage of which sometimes we have no knowledge of later in life..thanks for the feedback....

Bullying is a real problem, unfortunately, many of those who bully come from parents who feel they are superior in some way to others. Not only do the parents of those children who have been bullied need to get involved, but so do the parents of those who bully!

Deborah Brooks...We as a society , parents, G-parents can start by teaching : LOSE the hatred/prejudice/envy/ ADD : empathy and apathy...and tolerance for others...this does not necessarily have to do with religion...it is " treat others as you would want to be treated "..if everyone practiced this perhaps the world as we know it would change...Confidence/ self-discipline/ and love for ones self would be a start....thank you for your comment...

Computers have made the world a small place, and yet at the same time it is so vast, because you are never quite sure who is out there in cyber space. Sometimes it seems that it is dominated by very strange people whose only goal in life is to hurt others. A beautiful and very heartfelt poem, kj, and thank you for letting your voice cry out into the cyber wilderness.

Vickiw....Thank you for stopping by and commenting on my poem...yes with all the crap going on in the world that is negative..do we really need to add to the list ??? I think " NAUGHT "....this is happening not only to children vs children..but teachers have been guilty also...and then there are the adults/schools that are in denial.....

I never had to deal with this in school, it seems like the problem has gotten way out of control.

kj force 3 years ago from Florida Author

PHILLYDREAMER... Worse part is not only are children guilty of this BUT teachers are also guilty....and many just look the other way... even schools are not addressing the problem..EVERYONE appears to think it will just go away...It is the #1 issue in society that is devastating and should be addressed...

thanks for stopping by..

Hi Forcedanature:

The complexity of being or being a bully

With a normal disposition ethics takes makes the rules

But for some socio-beings with that fatal flaw of not feeling

Has a global toll that makes me wonder

Bullying, we have a nation with urban detention centres

Yep local places, and we trade with them

Now if that’s ok, bullying is just a Russian ( G detention) thing

Now it not personal but its is in your face

When you see woman beat up by a gang cause they complained

How do we translate our local experience to global experience

We are playing with the cyber space of our destruction

Just a notion of what it means to be bullied

Global warning or waring is just beginning

me being silly ......sorry

Ausseye....It appears to me that so many just turn their backs as though it in todays society bullying has become an accepted thing , in as it shows up in our schools , workplace , sports etc and many turn their backs and pretend it doesn't exist and perhaps that will make it go away...as this is the way many things in our world are handled these days..." head in the sand philosophy "..thanks for your thoughts on the subject...no need to apologize for your input..it is respected...

Today people actually take bullying seriously. I know I was terrorized by a group of girls in fifth grade. They did most of the taunting and teasing, but sometimes they would get the boys to join in. Back then the teacher wanted nothing to do with it, and unfortunately a lot of teasing kept happening until April when my mom went to the principal. He actually did something about it, but I was still bullied a bit when I was in junior high. In those days they told kids to ignore the bullying, and they even made it seem like it was our fault. I try not to think about it too much today, though, because by high school a lot of the kids who bullied people were sort of sad about it, and they actually apologized to me.

SweetiePie..Thank you for sharing such a personal experience, I know it was not easy...This poem was based on an experience someone dear to me went through and I am proud to say even though he is young the procedure of which he handled this issue was stupendously mature in everyway.

Thanks for commenting...

I really appreciate this poem KJ. The flow, the form, the poignant truths, and the compassion. It caused an eye brow to raise with the lines,

"Then out of the blue....

You accused me of bullying you ?...."

with remembrance.

A most important mission within life of hope for children of all ages and maybe, for peace in life with all ages.

Bullying is so horrible, whether it is the childhood or adult versions. People who abuse others typically accuse the target of the very behavior they are guilty of. Most people side with the charismatic bully. Great poem.
