We’re nearing September
A school year returns
But some may remember
What they may have learned.
I don’t mean from books
or teachers and such
but words that can hurt
the heart very much.

You’re fat! you’re ugly!bullying-hurts-any-child.jpg
You smell really bad!
You’re weird, you’re different!
You talk real funny!

These are a few slugs
that make them feel sad.

It’s wicked enough to be
bullied like this
but some are now facing
forbidding cruel taunts
of a sexual nature.

They wag their fingers
And snicker and sneer,bullying
begin their lip service
and calling them queer.
The more exploitation
these bullies give out
the targets will fear
where, there and here.
Schools should be safe
For all that attend
And not be a place
Where one feels disgraced.

Their nights become haunts
evoking mean features;
can’t sleep on most nightsse_high_school_bullying
they’ve imparted new rites!

Indeed ,it’s not fair
and it’s cruel and unkind
to see youths abused
who deserve to have fun.

At some of these schools
that doesn’t appear
to occur very often
to most other peers.

The witnesses and bystanders
The teachers and the janitors
Admin assists, Lunch monitors
Principal and counsellors
Should ALL band together
And not be remiss
Just all stick together
and put an end to all this!

Hey Society!
Listen Up!
It’s time to stop being so remiss
and put an end to all this!

Racial oppression
Mental cruelty
Cultural shame
Sexual assault and
Verbal abuse
Physical violence
Sexting, texting and
Cyber abuse
Gender discrepancies
Homophobic BULLYING!

Hey Society!
Listen up!
Stop being so remiss!
It’s time to put an END to all THIS!

A little bit about moi: I am a mom, a nana, a sister, a woman, a friend, a human being…a youth counsellor, Family Life Educator. I have been working in the helping profession for over 25 years and volunteered in various capacities from youths to seniors. Tournesol is my nom de plume for haiku and other Japanese form poetry here at Tournesoldansunjardin I hope you enjoy reading through my daily waka. I also have another blog "Stop the Stigma" where I may stand on my soapbox now and then and hope it will become a place to drop in and share or comment on issues important to you. In that vein this could be a great way to learn from each other. Namaste!

  1. Excellent timing. And the topic wakes up some memories. The last week of August was the time when I would go to bed as late as possible and wake up at dawn just to have as much joyful time as possible as I knew this would end soon. And how I hated Sundays for making space for another week.
