What Does Anti-Bullying Week Mean To You?

15th Nov 2021

Anti-bullying week is a very important week and one that BulliesOut recognises and promotes constantly.

This poem has been written by one of our Youth Ambassador’s, Abby, age 17. Abby has been affected by bullying behaviour for several years and it has had a devastating effect on her life.

 

What Does Anti-Bullying Week Mean To You?

The term ‘bullying’ has a unique meaning to everyone. Everyone’s bullying story is unique and it is important to use this week to look at how much you have overcome and remember the saying “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger”.

 

One kind word can change someone’s life, someone’s day, someone’s future,

Save them from their pain and their torture.

One kind word could help someone feel great,

Help someone get away from all of their hate .

 

Anyone can experience bullying in their life time,

Being nice and looking out for each other is not a crime.

The isolation and loneliness that the individual feels is something that I can relate to,

Hopefully this week people are able to take some time to empathise what many people go through.

 

How can we stand up to bullying you may ask ?

It may not be a simple task ,

But I can promise you that it will be worth it in the end.

 

By Abby Rayner, age 17yrs.
