Cyber Bullying

So now you have it , you have exposed your soul. Here it is laid bare

You have opened up your entire life, have a care.

Not everyone is as loving and caring as you.

If you lay your life open have a care of what unkind souls might do.

Once they get inside your head

They can check you out and manipulate anything you’ve said.

They can eat you up and plague you, spit you out and leave you dead.

OH! you must beware

They will strip you down and leave you bare.

They don’t know who you are

They don’t care, it is easier for them your mind to scar.

They will expose your secrets and sell your soul

Tell lies about you and expose your whole.

      Thank you, yes it is a terrible thing and it is getting more and more common, I felt I had to address the subject after yet another teenage suicide due to horrendous bullying. It is such a cowardly thing to do. I wish I could do more.

    Hey xx
    I just blogged this, like tonight, on the back of this today http://news.sky.com/story/1126220/teen-suicide-site-does-not-condone-bullying

    It is happening too often now. Parents must look more and these sites MUST moderate better..

    Thank you fro shedding light on this huge problem that has taken the lives of far too many of our children. The cloak of anonymity allows far too many to bruise the souls of the innocent.

      Yes it is a sad state of affairs that young children are being harried to their deaths by evil cowards hiding in their bedrooms behind their computers!

    I called in yesterday and wrote an epic on this theme, but then just before I got to post it I lost your page, how annoying… Your poem is spot on Willowdot, the cyber-bullies are gutter slime, cowards behind a monitor but times are changing, the footprints that are left behind after such disgusting attacks are now being investigated.

    I just hope that instead of talking about it, the politicians actually do something for a change, after all prevention is better than the cure is it not? 🙂 Those cyber-bully creeps make me sick, but for all those that indulge in these gross traits remember this, bullying is a weakness, it doesn’t show intelligence or worth and there will be consequences…

    Have a lovely rest of day my sweet friend 🙂

    Beautifully expressed. This is the issue that touches us all. Too much bullying and the resulting suicides have shaken us all. This must stop and I think here in Canada police force has opened direct links to schools where children who feel they are being bullied in school or on the web can talk to the police officer in charge discreetly and police can take action right away. Our police force and school officials are trying their best after so many teenage deaths to prevent any further tragedies. Lets hope for the best. Thanks for sharing. Take care my friend.

      Cyber Bullying is a nasty growing phenomenon which we need to address and somehow stop. Too many young lives have been cut short. Only this week a 14yr old girl was driven to hanging herself. I applaud this scheme involving the police working closely yet discreetly with the schools I think it is an excellent scheme I feel that it school be the sort of partnership that UK schools should be adopting. Thank you for your support and I wish you a good weekend. 😉 xx

        In Canada a lot is happening Willow. Province of Nova Scotia has just passed a cyber bullying legislation. The other provinces and territories have forwarded their recommendations in this regard to the Safety minister. Lets hope we might see a federal legislation regarding this issue pretty soon. I have reblogged the news from a Canadian police officer’s blog. I hope other countries like U. k follow suit since this is a very big problem. I loved your poem. Take care.

        We all need to pull together and get this bullying squashed! It seems to be world wide , large places and small places too. It is all wrong. Lets hope they can trace the bullies by their IP addresses! Thanks for taking an interest!! 🙂

      Thank you I was tolled once that is how I knew how this can effect people. Yet the poem is about how cyber bullying affects young children, teenagers and young adults. There has been a spate of teenage suicides, the problem is escalating and needs to be seriously and swiftly dealt with. There was another 14yr old girl who was driven to hanging herself, in the UK this week. We need to draw attention to this terrible situation. Thank you for your care be well and happy. Xxx

      It is a huge problem, I was bullied at school and for a while in the work place. It is a long time since I was at school so there was no cyber bullying then….. thank goodness home was my safe haven and school holidays my refuse. Today there is no escape for these poor young souls. The bullies get inside their heads. I have written two poems on cyber bullying also one on my experience as child.
      I have also tried to address mental abuse in relationships. I am glad to have met you and to know there are people who care. Good luck to you in your work and your life. Thank you for your kind words on my post. Be well and be happy. 😉
