A year 7 boy that attended my old school committed suicide a few days ago. He was 11years old.
Rumours are circulating that it was a result of abuse at home and bullying at school.
I thought I'd write something... So here I go
I walk on air
They shout and taunt me but I walk on air
Its liberating, like the wind blowing on a hot day
Everythings better out here; lifes better this way
I walk on air surrounded by a sea of clouds
Clouds... clouding my judgement.
I walk on air because its better.
See they walk all over me
I want to defy them let them know, I can be all I want to be
Cuss me, tell me my nose is big
My eyes? too small
My face? Gorilla
You see the times I cry?
its because they bind me to insults that travel as sound waves. These echo and repeat in the universe
I survived millions of sperm, lived in darkness for 9months only to fight again ...
I thought the struggle was over at birth?
You spit on me, insult me and all this is absorbed by the earth
I shed tears like they are blood
I shed tears because I'm covered in your mud
The mud you dipped your knife into before dirtying me with insults and
stabbing me with laughs,
I hear them now.
Yelling. Laughing. Giggling. Shouting. Taunting.
that is I.
E Y E UGLY.
What they are doing to me.
eye you seeing what they are doing to me?
why do you walk past?
why do you ignore?
why do you say its what kids do?
im a kid... do I do that too?
i may not have the lastest shoes but at least i'm living.
i may not be the most good looking but at least i am breathing
i may not walk how you want, talk how you want, but at least I am breathing.
with my 'ugly' face am i not still human?
did I not emerge the same way as you?
were we not created in the same motion?
was i hatched and not born?
is that why you mock?
is that why you let my life 'pause' everyday?
I walk on air
I walk on air because I am beyond earth.
Im flying through
Leaving it all to the earth
Mother Nature never forgets
I walk on air because, well... I am dead.
I now walk on air because I was killed by those on land.
I walk on air.
*I am so seriously against bullying. Its wrong on EVERY level. BEAT BULLYING. its not a joke. People kill themselves over it.
You cannot torture someone for not being the same as everyone else. We are not all supposed to be alike. Bullying is WRONG WRONG WRONG AND WRONG.
Its not FUNNY. Its WRONG.
YOU DON'T DO IT. And if you see it happening and you do and say nothing, you're an even bigger bully.
May this little boy's soul be at peace.
