Part three of three
***

Dear Victims,
You are not alone.
There are thousands like you
Similar situations
Same taunts
Same threats
You are not alone.

You are not the only one
Who has Ďlearntí to keep their head down
To avoid being noticed

You are not the only one
Who thinks they are a failure
To everyone else

You are not the only one
Who cries themselves to sleep
Each and every night

You are not the only one
Who lives in fear
Of what tomorrow will bring

You are not the only one
Who thinks they are a major
Disappointment

You are not the only one
Who gets teased and taunted
Who gets tripped and hit

You are not the only one
Who counts the days
Until school ends

You are not the only one
Who wakes up
Knowing today wonít be different

You are not the only one
Who hates to be
You

You are not the only one
Who canít stand up
For themselves

You are not the only one
Who wonders how the bystanders can
Laugh and cheer

You are not the only one
Who wishes someone would
Just see

You are not the only one
Who sees
No way out

You are not the only one
You are not the only one
You are not the only one

So say
STOP
So say
HELP

There is no shame
In wanting it to end
But do it so the innocent
Donít get hurt

But do it so you see
The bullies get punished

Donít do it so you
Forever lay underground
Not knowing if your death bought justice.

Donít do it so your
Parents
Friends
Strangers you didnít even know you meant something to
Suffer forever over their mistakes
Forever telling themselves that
They couldíve helped
They couldíve done something
They couldíve seen

Your mum and dad
Will miss you

Your friends
Will miss you
And donít think you donít have any friends Ďcause you do
You just don't realise it
Youíre old ones will blame themselves too

Strangers will miss you
The girl you sit next to on the bus
The boy who takes your order every morning
For coffee
Even if you never noticed them
But they know you

The teachers who have taught you
Every single year
Will miss you

They will all forever torment themselves with
The question everyone will be asking:
Could I have done anything?

So donít kill yourself
Donít let the innocent suffer
For what the guilty has done

Just say
STOP
Just say
HELP

Because you have
THE RIGHT TO FEEL SAFE
So ask for help
It wonít solve everything immediately
But it will start the dominos falling
It will start the trials for the guilty
It will start a better tomorrow

You made some very good points in all three postings.

I have always said to  students( very young ones) that when someone bullies or picks on another it is because they don't feel good about themselves.

I've been on the receiving end of terror and bullying. It motivated me to murder, though I couldn't get a gun at the time. I've also been the bully, but only because my own terror drove me to terrorize others so they could feel as helpless as I did. Now that that part of my life is behind me, I can honestly regret my choices with heartfelt remorse, and forgive the ones who tormented me, if I myself wish to be forgiven. But it almost seems as if those who do these things are losing all sense of conscience and decency, and have little remorse and it's becoming easier to be hard hearted these days. I delight in your sensitive outlook to this foolish and needless past time. Thanks for sharing.
