The GOOD Life

Posted: 5/24/2011

Have you ever thought that you
might go insane?
That one day you'll snap and
no longer be the same?
You'll be lost to everyone and
everything you know
In a world without rain, sleet, hail or snow.
 
This place is an escape that is
beyond your control
It will be like handing over to some stranger
your soul.
Yet I can't help wondering what
it would be like
I think it might be refreshing
like a nice long hike.
 
In fact I find myself wishing it
would happen to me
I get the feeling that I will then
become free.

There will be no more burdens,
no pressure at all
There will be no more pain cause
there is nowhere to fall
I will forget my past;
no more haunting memories
I don't have to worry about filling life with
happy 'tempories'
 
Money won't be an issue; there is no price
for this sort of life
I won't have to watch my words cause its
impossible to feel strife
There will be no one to tease me;
to be horrible for no reason
I won't have a different mood
for every single season.
 
I won't have to work;
try to find something that's right
It would be so much simpler if I
just gave up this fight.

Yet I must stay in reality,
I know this as a matter of fact
It's like I've made a promise,
it's my secret pact.
I can't do something so selfish,
I'm afraid I'm too true
So instead I'll just have to
sit here and stew
 
I can't leave my Mum,
leave her in a horrible state
Because she'd be devastated if that
ended up being my fate
And of course the rest of my family
would be upset too
To do that to them,
well it's just something I really can't do.
 
I can't abandon my friends when I've promised
to always be there
I can't leave them thinking
I don't really care.

So although sometimes I feel
very near the edge
And a lot of the time I feel like
jumping off the ledge
I know I won't do it,
it just won't happen ever
So instead I'm going to
have to find a lever
 
Something that will help me
get a foot in the door
Something that will help me
get up off the floor.
It's time I got over the past
and made myself strong
Let it all drift away,
no it won't take long

Bullies

Posted: 5/24/2011

bullies are strong
bullies are big
bullys have the power
but they don’t have one thing
they don’t have the strength to stand up and stop

I Was Bullied and Bullied Back

Posted: 5/24/2011

I was bullied throughout my 5th grade year. People would walk and say something mean and rude to me I felt really bad and would feel like I had nothing else to do but make fun of that person back. The reaction I saw in that person's face reminded me of someone and that someone was me. That whole night I thought about it and wondered how embarrased that person was. It was like he felt like me. So the next morning I went up to him and said sorry.

At that moment his friends came up and he said '' Get away from me you dumb pig. You probably have a disease and I do not want to catch the uglies so get away ''. At that moment I just walked away. I ran to the bathroom and cried because I was so humiliated. That night I just wanted to die. I thought to myself that i shouldn't care what other people think I should just care what I think of myself. I think I am beautiful and no one can tell me different.

The next morning I walked into class and everyone was staring at me and giggling. Then the boy who made fun of me came up to me and bumped into me and said '' move fatty ''. Everyone laughed. The rest of the day I had my head down with a frown on my face. I wanted to tell the teacher but I was embarrased and thought everyone would think of me as a tattle teller.

I went home and thought that I needed to learn how to stick up for myself without hurting someone’s feelings.

That next morning I went up to the boy and said '' Okay I am fed up with you bullying me and I am asking you please to stop. So please stop''.  The boy was speechless. He walked away. Then I walked to my desk. Later that day he came up to me and said that he was sorry and he was not aware of how much he was hurting my feeling.

A burst of happiness rushed through me and I had no more problems throughout the year. Now I am in sixth grade with confidence and happier than ever. I will never forget that week and I encourage everyone to do the same.

STOP!!!!!!

Posted: 5/23/2011

This needs to STOP!!!! NO ONE should ever feel afraid for their life everyday going to school. My grades are hurting because I can't focus on school work when all I'm thinking of is how to survive walking down the hallway to my next class! I also don't participate in any sports or other activities because there's always one of "them" there ready to harrass me! They drive by my house and yell out their window mean things,they crank call my phone and harrass me,threaten me,put me down! They chase me down the hallways at school and yell mean things,slam me against lockers,throw things at me,laugh at me,imitate me,pull my hair!!!! It's harrassment and whenever I tell the nurse,guidance counselor or principal they tell me to ignore it and it'll go away or to change and become more like them!!!! NONE of these things will help and no one seems to understand or care or wanna help!!!! I feel helpless and all alone in a battle that I didn't start!!!!

My Story

Posted: 5/23/2011

I happen to have Asperger Syndrome. I like a quiet classroom because it helps me pay attention to the teacher. I am very interested in what the teacher is telling us and I find it extremely frustrating when the other kids are too noisy for me to hear and the teacher doesn't make them be quiet. I also like to collect sticks and bring them home, play pretend video games during recess and sing songs when I'm happy. I know I can't sing while I'm in the classroom.

Mom and Dad have taught me that would be disrespectful of the other kids trying to concentrate. But why are they allowed to talk? And why do they get away with teasing me about wanting to take a stick home when the teacher gave me permission to take it?

Why do I get in trouble when I tell adults what happened and they don't do anything, so I figure I have to make the mean kids stop myself and the mean kids don't get into trouble just because nobody SAW them be mean to me?

The BIGGEST thing for me would be if teachers would believe me and give the bullies consequences, instead of just me when I try to stick up for myself after I've told the teacher and nothing was done, so I feel like I have to take care of it myself. I just want to learn in class and have a few friends.
If someone doesn't like me, that's ok, just leave me alone then. But they don't have to be mean to me.

9th Grade

Posted: 5/23/2011

The kids at school bullied me because I was either new, had more academic ability, was placed in higher-grade classes, or basically just because they wanted to start a fight. I didn't even know what the gossip, shoving, and prank calling were about half the time. It was a horrible time. 9th grade was the worst year of my life because of bullying.

Faked Being Sick

Posted: 5/23/2011

Being Bullied has made me lose all self esteem and confidence. I faked being sick in order that I wouldn't have to go and see my bullies. No one should be made to feel like that as we are all meant to be unique however treated equally. I was brought up to belive that everyone was beautiful and should be treated equally. Then why did those girls feel the need to humiliate, insult and degrade me???
