Bullying Kills.

by Marta   Jan 23, 2005

She would always come home crying
Being her mother, I didn't know why
Why every day she came home...
With tears draining from her eyes.

I was left with what should I do?
Her pain was hard to understand
But I had to let my baby know
That I'm here for a helping hand.

One day she came home sobbing
The worst that I have ever seen
I started to get very suspicious
Of why the kids were so mean.

She showed me her bruised elbow
With tears streaming down my face
I quickly drove her to the hospital
Thinking those kids can be replaced

The results were what I didn't think
I couldn't believe the solemn words
Of what the doctor was trying to say
And why these actions had occured.

They put a cast on her little arm
Thinking what these kids had done
To such a beautiful young girl
Whose life had just begun.

I quickly gave the school a call
Saying the kids should be replaced
She told me that I couldn't do that
That it was just a cruel waste.

But I don't think she understood
The pain my daughter has felt
Every day I told her it's okay
That she has tried and dealt.

One day she didn't come home
I started to worry and shake
I didn't know what to expect
The impatience I couldn't take.

I gave the school another call
Telling them she was missing
They told me they didn't know
That she will be back or something.

After a few minutes, the phone rang
Maybe they had found my baby
Playing with her friends at the park
Or just something I couldn't see.

They told me that she was gone
She killed herself at 1 o'clock
I couldn't register the words
And how much I was in shock.

In my daughters suicide letter
Her solemn words made my cry
And she gave me her reason
Of why each day she wanted to die.

It was because of the kids at school
She couldn't take the pain anymore
So she took her own young life
For her strength had gone sore.

She wanted me to say to the kids
Who had teased her from her skills
To think before you speak
Because bullying does kill.
