Pity you, Cyber Bullies.

DSC_1696smIs that what you aim for, to feel good about yourselves?
to take a child’s innocence, hopes and dreams
stamp it out because your confidence lost you?
Look at yourselves, long and hard.
Cowards behind a keyboard. Bullied yourselves
one way or another.
All your lives,
that you continued to deny.
Big for the sake of it. Because you can.
Because for the first time you have no retribution.
You are hidden now, you will not always be.
What you don’t see.
What you fail to see,
is the look on the face of a child.
The look of confusion.
“What did I do wrong?”
Too young really to realise
how pitied and pathetic you actually are.
How bigger and better than you
they are.
Each and every one of them,
who treat and treated other people
with respect.
Pity the cyber bully,
for they are cowards.
Like serial killers without the bollocks
to pick up the knife.
The children who you take,
Will haunt you.
They will always haunt you.
You will change, grow and move on.
They will still be gone.
Each one lost by you
You will never forget what you did.
You will try to as life puts its better mark on you.
As you meet better people who make
you feel good about yourself.
By then it will be imprinted on
your tiny, stupid, ignorant grown up mind.
No matter how hard you grow up and try to forget,
that you did that.
you can’t.
No better person in your life
can ever help you to take back that.
You will not be laughing then.
When you pay the price.

Stop Cyber bullying.

    • I loath bullying of any kind, cyber bullying though is cowardly and aggressive. The best we can do is teach our children how to deal with it sensibly if it happens to them. There are certain sites I wouldn’t allow them to use. Thanks for your comments. 🙂

  1. Certain sites, such as Facebook, refuse to take any responsibility. It’s all about money these days. Boycott Facebook and other social media networks who allow cyber-bullying until they pull their heads out of their cash-flow charts and tackle the problems that their sites are causing. By ignoring the trolls, such sites are encouraging the abuse to continue. By continuing to use their sites, we’re encouraging them not to take responsibility. The answer – boycott them. Until we do we’re part of the problem.

    • I agree Brian. The problem is being ignored by them, my daughter has a Facebook account to keep in touch with relatives but I heavily monitor it, to be honest I will probably get her to delete it.

    Had to reblog this. As a victim of bullying in school before the advent of cyber bullying it is a topic that I’m following closely – one more thing I’ll need to pay attention to as a parent when the little prince is old enough for this to factor into his life. I hope we have turned things around before then, but that’s going to take us all standing up and doing something about it…

    • Thank you,I am honored that you shared it really I am. it really is something that bothers me deeply, it is so hard at such a young age to deal with growing up, changes, hormones and everything is such a confusion, to have that thrown in the mix must be horrendous. I really do bang on to my kids that it is ok to tell me things because that online world can so easily become invisible to you. If it makes even one person stop and think then that is enough. x

    My blogger friend, djmatticus reblogged this, and I feel I should reblog it too. Having been bullied, once upon a time, before the days of cyberspace, I know what it’s like … and how the fear and scars never, ever go away.

  5. Thanks for this post … having been a victim of bulliying when I was young, this resonates …. sadly, that was thirty-odd years ago, and we’re only just now trying to do something about it…

    • Thank you for commenting John. There is no excuse of bullying of any kind and I am sorry that you had to deal with that. I know it will never go away and the best that we can do is try to educate our children firstly not to ever be the one to do that to another and secondly how to deal with it if it happens to them. It is so difficult.

      • I think that you’re right … it will always be there … but, at least we’re talking about it, as a society, and, hopefully it will bring about some change … and save a few lives.

      • I agree. It needs to be said, talked about, dealt with. When young children are taking their own lives because of it then it is time that it was dealt with properly.

  6. I appreciate the post and respectfully agree with most of the comments that follow. However, in my opinion, talking about this or any other impugnable activity effects little change. While the notion of boycotting Facebook is admirable, Brian, it’s reminiscent of “too big to fail.” People must act to effect significant social change. Look at the affect “Act Up” had on bringing early and much needed attention, action and resources to the AIDS epidemic. We must get in the face of legislators, decision makers and active agents of social change. In today’s world, there is clear awareness of this issue – especially with parents of fragile children and teens. If we shift our focus and intentions to demonstrable action – now – we will create the requisite change. Even if it’s a lengthy process.

    Thank you for sharing/posting this.
