Blank [POETRY]

24 Jun



Now you’ve gone and done it,

You’ve broken all his bones.

Your words were quite the perfect weapons

They crushed him like thrown stones

Now you’ve gone and done it,

You’ve slashed her mind to shreds.

Any hope of self esteem,

You’ve dashed down on the river bed.

I bet you’re pretty proud,

You heartless parasite.

To be the one to ruin minds,

To make them want to end their lives.

This will be your legacy,

How you’re remembered here.

Your stone will have no words,

Your life will disappear.

    Reblogged this on abbiegrrl's recovery blog and commented:
    There are a multitude of reasons why we turn to self-medicating our pain. This is one of mine.
    I hope you’re not familiar with this, and if you are…
    You’re not at fault, you’re not alone, and God will repay them.
    Love and gentle hugs

      Thank you for the reblog and kind comments, Abbie’. Yes, I went through some bullying as a child but nothing like what goes on with today’s kids – we always downplay our own situations don’t we? I wrote this poem trying to imagine how those kids feel and what they endure and it infuriates me. I wanted the reader to feel their pain and my anger in the words. Bless you for who you are, my friend. X C

    This is so spot on, I had to skim it rather than reading crefulyy, as usual. I was actually bullied at a job for 6 months, just a couple of years ago. I hadn’t experienced it since high school, where it had been relentless.
    I feel sorry for them, intellectually, when I have some distance between the…person and myself. Of course what I feel like doing is much less spiritual and horrifies me that I can feel that way. I think I’ll re-blog this. Thanks.

      Thank you so much for your comments, Abbie’. I am saddened that you had to endure this treatment for so long, and even into adulthood!!! It’s unnecessary and uncalled for. You are a strong and morally focused person for taking the high road in your reactions. I hope I would be as strong as you if I were in the same situation. X
