Some wear nooses like necklaces
tied tightly with the words of those with hollowed out hearts
Some experience sleepless nights filled with the empty promises of brighter days
but fear remains that nothing will change.
Harsh words linger on the breath of surrounding peers
as they taunt louder and more frequent
pushing some to the point of
no hope, no return.
Actions do not necessarily speak louder than words;
So stand up and speak up against bullying
and help put an end to teen suicide.
Together, we can make a difference.
