Local student writes poem about being bullied

Posted: Updated:

Poem written by Wythe County student about Bullying:

I walk the halls and I hide from their stares
Some say words and giggle with menacing glares
I want to run away, but that's no reason

I hide the bruises on my arms
All the teachers are subdued by their charms
I want to speak up and say look at me
But that's no reason

I cry myself to sleep each night
Wishing just one of them could see my fright.
I'm going to scream leave me alone
And run back to my safe home
But that's no reason

I've had enough, no one can hear my pain
Each and every day it's all the same
I spoke up once and I was told
You're very brave and very bold
But that's no reason.

No reason to not laugh with the boy
He's just being a kid
He's only trying to annoy
So that's no reason

You should ignore the girl
Despite the fact that she's destroyed your world
Just smile at her and wave
She's just a girl and will behave
So that's no reason

Now the pain is too much to bear
I lay me down and an oath I swear
No more will I be bullied and made to cry
They can't bother me after I die

I know and feel my parents love
They treat me so gentle like a dove
But this pain is so great, it defeats all love
So that's no reason

No reason to stay and hurt anymore
So now I will knock on Heaven's door
I've done no wrong and He will let me in
To be bullied no more and feel love again

So to stay here and die
Or be lifted up and hear cries?
That's my reason
