Bully:

A beauty queen/or so it seems
top of her class/all cheaters pass

I know what you've done/I know where you've been
I know who you've done/so many young men


Victim:

I'm innocent/so why repent
leave me alone/stay off my phone

There's nothing I've done/there's nowhere I've been
there's no one I've done/don't text me again


Bully:

The video/it's proof to show
the things you've done/the world will know

You stole my bf/you vexed the wrong chick
you crossed the wrong girl/now live down these pics


Victim:

The girl on tape/she's got black hair
they've called it rape/I was not there 

why harass poor me/why slander my name
why can't you just see/that I'm not to blame?


why can't you see/you're hurting me?
why should I care/miss populaire?
I have a life/why cause me strife?
you have no life/I am your life!
please let me be/just set me free!
I never will/no, never will


Bully:

I'll never stop/just wait and see
until you drop/your final plea...?


Victim:

You've won the fight/I'll go away
can't stand my plight/go far away...

News report:

From the small town of Guyana Illinois comes this sad news:  Seventeen year old Samantha Samuels, a popular student and class valedictorian at Valencia high school, was found dead yesterday, an apparent suicide.  In the note that she left for family and friends, it was apparent that she had become yet another victim to a CYBERBULLY!

Her parents tearfully claimed to know nothing of her ordeal...
before you even start - THINK! let's end this now...

note to parents: it's ok to be nosy! know what your kids are doing online and ask questions. get involved!

* this is a song. to get the full impact, try to imagine the voice of Pink in the role of predator; the voice of Taylor Swift in the role of victim

This is such a prevalent issue in todays society, I heard that the nations suicide rate has gotten even higher

in the passed years. We need more awareness poems like this to bring light to this issue.

 

This poem reminded me so much of one of my poems.

Thanks for sharing. Yes whether it's bullying or a broken romance or the death of a loved one that is causing the suffering, suicide is NEVER a viable solution

It doesn't really matter what happens on the internet! What matters is who the people are behind the screen. 
There will never be an absolute end to cyber bullying, truthfully, you cannot stop people from saying what they want.
However what you can do is increase peoples vocabulary skills and keep people active, as in going running every other night, or getting a punching bag, or do yoga. 
These things will boost/restore health, confidence, and mental strength. 

This is the only cure. And this cure will do more than just lower cyber bullying rates, it will shape our world to be destined for a better future.

I don't usually post literature on dA because I'm afraid of it being stolen. But I can put up some of my old poems if you like. Give me an hour or two to copy and paste them.

Thank you for writing this.  You did a nice job switching from normal to bold text. 

Here's my solution to cyberbullying.

We need to make the Internet childproof.  When you click on the icon for Internet Explorer/Mozilla Firefox/Google Chrome, before you can enter a URL and begin surfing, you should have your hand scanned by the Leap Motion Sensor to make sure it's big enough.  This sensor is so advanced it can measure your heartbeat.  Your fingers should be no shorter than two inches (this is an approximation that can be refined), and you should able to close your hand into a fist and open it back up again. 

In case you were wondering, I don't have a Facebook account.  Also, I didn't get my first cellphone until I was in college.

Nice idea but not practical. At what age to childproof?  You could never get anyone to agree. Also, bullying would continue among adults. Look what the paparrazi does to celebs et al. Thanks for commenting

Sigh. With the internet and all; bullying is a even bigger issue nowadays than in our parents time. Kids can be so cruel. I am certain some don't care who they hurt. They just speak their mind, most don't even "look before they leap". And that is a downside to "freedom of speech", which in the "first-world" is a privilege that people take for granted. People online and off can say whatever they like. When something is posted online or typed, it is there forever (unless the internet crashes for good or something for everyone...). In this song, the point of view is from the so called popular girl, which is different. Most people are bullied by the "popular" people, but the bullies themselves were most likely victims as well at one point (doesn't make what they do right though; and I don't mean to label anyone). I get so upset when I read stories about young people who end their lives because of the cruel things people have said; it enrages me, and I cannot help, but see the world through gray shades (become overly pessimistic). Whenever I would feel in the past that I should give up (if I had a "weak" moment), I would remind myself of the pain so many others go through and have gone through, and I tell myself that I do not want the "evil" side to "win". It got me through middle school and the early years of high school.

I can't imagine being cyber bullied in the life I've lived (16-17) years I was only bullied once and it was physical, however I cleared that up with my fists. Sometimes I wish people were has strong has me where I never gave people the chance to bully me and if it happens I settle it like a tough cookie. I've heard about bullying and it makes me want to vomit- in all honesty I'm waiting for the day to witness it so I can handle it again instead of watching someone cry. I never understand how people can watch or hear about bullying and live in their own skin!

most leaders would suggest that the best way to handle a bully is to ignore him/her and walk away. understandably, this is not always possible

I mean for me I live a very crazed and video game loving life so I could be being cyber bullied and I wouldn't know because I neeeevvvveer go online and if I do its youtube. I wish people could be stronger at times ;3 I never understand cyber bullying the way most people do unfortunately, I guess my thinking is if I get annoyed just don't go on anymore and spam them up!
