Some may think that bullying can just be pushing and shoving in the halls.
But no, it is so much more than that.
Bullying can range from verbal or social abuse and cyber bullying.
Do you know how many kids each year commit suicide because of this issue?

Bully is one word, but there are two groups that do the damage.
Boys and girls are the cause.
Boys use direct words,
Girls bully in groups.

But, this isn’t always the case.
Some bully because of insecurities and problems at home,
So they take it out on others,
Feeling good with themselves after.

As of April 12, 2012,
The suicide rate of bullying from ages 10-14 is 44 percent.
Some don’t even pay attention to this,
And others see it… but don’t do anything about it.

If you or someone you know is a victim of bullying,
Tell someone you trust,
Before the bully takes it too far.
It is better to get help then none at all.

The author's comments:
I feel like this piece really shows how much bullying can affect people lives, and how high the suicide rate is nowadays. Bullying really should be put to show.
