He was by best friend
I tried to help him

But a dark cloud
so black, came down
engulfed the soul I knew.

I watched the lightnin'
turn into
silent hiding  
the day I caught his wrist
what is this
the scars were emotional

It was always hovering
what was it
that seeped inside
into his heart.
into his very mind now

I know who and what it is,  
the sneers, jeers
glares an' stares
everyone whisperin'
in eachothers ears
was just to much to bear.
(He said he didn't care) - 1 Min mark

He gave up sleeping,
then eating,
He said no one cared
when he tried to tell his mom.


I recall that day,
the look on his face!
            (it turned from smiles and laughter
            to tears and fears)
shivering as he walked away!

I recall that very day,
The look on his face!
shivering as he walked away!

Tell me what they say
what their sayin' to ya' now,

Tell me what they say
what their yellin' at'chyeah now,
tell me what they're
whispering
behind your back now!
( screamed into your face,
                  pushed you into place)
taunts, threats
warnings, not just from the kids we knew,
it was the teachers too.
Oh God we reached out,
tried to get some help,
but everyone
even his parents
denied
the world he and I
we all knew.
The screams and jeers,
beatings, sneers
as we walked through the halls

(Bridge) 2:20 mark
I recall!
Ahh!
I
Ahh!
I recall!
(Bridge)

He gave up that day
right after school
and walked into
another world
I could not go to.

they all said
he had no place

oh his life,
was it so worthless!?

I watched as the
hollowness
descend!
I could not,
god though I tried
my words could not break through

the look upon his face
He did his best,
to hide the shame

But I could see straight through
that mask was entirely lucent

Bullied to,
bullied to,
Bullied to,
the breaking point!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Don't tell me
don't tell me now
he was worthless
this is what you all did
and I am left
to pay the price
and pick up what is left
am I the only one who regrets

Sending him to school.
You know how you're supposed to be doing something and for whatever reason your artistic side, creative side, brain what have you decides it's NOT going to do what you NEED to do (like work) it's going to run off and to THIS instead?
...
:-/!
yeah.
I've got one of those, hell weeks? Nights? I donno.
either way I've been reading a LOT of Bullied and Victim stuff lately and well, having been EXTREMELY HARRASSED a.k.a. Bullied myself when I was young I totally identify.
Hell, I STILL am; by my own family.
(My Dad esp. >X-P!)
But yeah, there you go.

So I ended up staying up all night (It's 7:30 a.m. now and I'm still up >X_P!) and writing this.
*chuckle:-)*

It's a Bully Sing Along! lol! :-D

I put the lyrics as best I could to Nicklebacks - "Just to get High" song.

See if you can sing along to it with what I wrote here ;-)
I tried all night and couldn't, partially cause I'm OLD and SLOW now ;-)P!

Well, let me know what you all think.
and maybe I'll put up the FAR BETTER Lyrics that don't really go with the tune, but say a LOt more and are just plain better.
for now though, I'm going to sleep.
night!
-_- Zzzz...!
:-)

This piece would be perfect for a project we are developing -- an online gallery for artists who have been bullied or who explore the theme of bullying in their work. It's called the You Will Rise Project. Check it out here: [link] and let us know if you would be willing to share this piece on the site. Read the "Submit Your Work" section of the site for details and follow the instructions there to send us your submission. Thanks!

Thank you very very much. :-)
I would very much like to submit to your site.
I also have one other poem that just happened tonight. :-) It's, "My Childhood". It might go a bit better with your theme. :-)
I would very much like to submit it also, if you'd be willing.

I'll go check out the site and see.
thank you so much.

My brother. He always appeared to be invincible to all the bullying until I noticed the cuts. He would tell me how depressed he was and he was so scared to tell our grandmother about it. He was on the medicine acutane which had been linked to causing depression and suicide. He finally got help for the depression, but I'm almost certain he cut himself regularly until his death. He didn't kill himself. He died in an unfortunate car accident when he was 19.

I'm so sorry.
...
I never know what to say to things like this I'm sorry about that. :-(!
And I probably shouldn't be responding right now because of how terribly TIRED I am, but I can assure you he's more then likely at peace and a lot better off and happier now since he doesn't have to put up with bullying anymore. :-(

I'm so sorry for your loss. :-(!

That's what helps me. He's at peace now. No one dared to bully him in college. Apparently, he wasn't that weird all along. Our highschool had about 100 people per grade so going to a very small religious school means you will be picked out for being even the slightest bit different. I got picked on because I had cut my hair boy short in elementary. They called me a dike and so on. I met a friend who the next year chopped off all her hair too. We had so much fun with all the people. :)

Thank god he was not bothered in college.
He went in peace then I hope. At least he wasn't being attacked any longer, that can be a bit of peace. :-)

Yeah, I totally understand about the small school.
I'm sorry that a private Christian School would do that to someone.
It's like they never even read their bibles to LOVE first and foremost.
*shakes head!*
:-(!

I'm glad you were able to have a friend there.
I never got something so lucky.
:-(!!!!!!!

I'm glad you had a chance, unlike me.

I guess we differ on the definition of chance.
I left that hell after the first quarter of tenth grade. I sort of went through a bad time and refused to leave the house for like two months. I formally withdrew from there and proceeded to get denied entry into a nearby public school. The school board superintendent called me names. I should have pressed charges on him. I'm psychotic because I see a psychiatrist but the super was defending that he willingly kept a grave robber in his system? :clap: Bravo, bravo. :)

Maybe if you P.M. me and put it in a bit longer message.
this way no one else will hear about your "dirty Laundry" so to speak.

Sorry about this, but I'm a bit lost now.

Yeah, sorry about that.
It just hit me outta the blue when I was listening to the song.
It's fiction, but states a LOT of what I've been reading so yeah. :-(!!!!!!!

And really it's kinda about me, so yeah. So kinda, the "main character" didn't die ;-).

Thanks for the comment though.
