I wrote this poem for anti-bullying week at my school.
Bullying MUST Stop!
Sitting down and screaming, crying and yelling OUT LOUD! Trying to make my parents proud, looking up at the sky I wish to die.
A single tear falls from my face, Do they hate, hurt, ignore and punch me because of my race?
Why does it hurt? Is there a lesson to be learnt? Why can’t they leave me alone and let me be free?
I sit in my room all alone, I feel hurt and shaken to the bone. I open my curtain and window and see the moon, I remember last spring when I was happy, not just to see the flowers bloom.
I walk down to the kitchen, and open a drawer, not wanting any more. I roll up my sleeve and make a dot. With a bright red pen.
I take a knife and push down, I felt my body fall to the ground. I hear my mother calling for me, don’t worry I’m finally free.
The stab felt like a bite; seconds later, there was no light…
Don’t go thinking that I really wanted to kill myself! I know my daddy was concerned when he first read it! He thought that his daughter needed a psychiatrist!
For all of you who don’t know, my daddy is the famous blog writer of JUMBIE’S WATCH. (His name is not actually Jumbie by the way!)
