Do Not Give Up. I Didn't!

Posted: 1/10/2012

My poem reflects what can and does occur when bullying gets ignored and "our children" have lost hope.As parents, educators, counselors, and peers, when we see bullying - when we step up and step in - we ARE the voice of HOPE.

They Couldn't Stay

Someone took their life today
pain so deep
they couldn't stay.

Whispers echoed through the soul
all alone
no longer whole.

Did you look the other way
when you saw
hate on display?

Someone took their life today
pain so deep
they couldn't stay.

To all of you kids out there being bullied know that you are strong! Know that the best revenge is to shine! Don't give up! When you give up they all win, but really they are not winners. People who are winners do not put others down for any reason! Try and rise above the name calling and whispering. Seriously, tell someone who can help you and keep telling until someone listens. You deserve to be listened to and you deserved to be helped. Do not give up. I didn't!
