This is a message
A message to all the bullies and tormentors
These are the words that your victims wish to say,
but cannot because they are too scared to see what you will do to them in return
I have the ability to say these things
These things that need to be said
This is for you
Why do you think it's okay to build yourself up by breaking others down?
The monsters people wished weren't under their beds
turned out to be you instead
How can you not notice that you are killing people?
This isn't just some joke
Other people's lives aren't your toys
that you can discard when you get bored of them
This isn't some game to the people you hurt
You treat people like dirt,
when you can't see their real worth
You don't understand what horror lives within your words
You don't understand how your words leave scars on their hearts
You don't understand it's not only our feelings getting bruised
You just don't understand
Because not all of us are the same
Not everyone deals with things alike
the thing that is the lightest of light to you
is the darkest of dark to another
Your words are and forever will be
You treat others as if they are just gum on your shoes
something you just want to get rid of.
Because once the gum is gone,
your shoes will look better
you are wrong
How dare you think that what you say
should be said
The people you hurt
they are the gems of this earth.
Just by the way you treat them
you are the gum on their shoes
The knives coming from your mouth
They leave scars forever
These scars can't be healed by a simple
They don't heal
What you don't realize is..
The girl that you just called ugly
She has been given a plague by the names of
So, she can't help but take your "joke" to heart
It may look like she doesn't care
But she is walking away holding back the tears you gave
Then after school,
when you post about the victory you got from her pain on social media,
She is at her home,
in the bathroom
sitting on the floor
inflicting pain on herself because
what you said
she believes is true.
The next day,
she isn't at school
nor will she be the day after that
she isn't coming back
Yet you say,
"She got what she deserved"
How can you think this is just?
How can you be so cruel to the same person
you just killed?
She died by your words
She died thinking she was a burden
She died thinking she is a mistake
She died not ever knowing her true beauty
All of this because of your brutal words.
How can you do this to an innocent person?
They did nothing wrong
This is ******
And it's not okay.
You bring fear upon those with kindness in their hearts
if you have just begun
Just started giving out fear like candies
Know that with each word you say
another part of your heart withers away
So, do me a favor and
aren't words at all
They are weapons
Don't use them without thinking first
You have the power within you to be good
You can change
You are able to be the difference
You have the choice
A choice of words
Because the things that come out of your mouth can
This is most likely not directed towards you (the reader), that is, unless you are a bully. This is just something I wrote about something that needed ti be addressed.
