DV Awareness Day#13: Bullying

As we bring awareness to the various abuses during October’s Domestic Violence Awareness Month, I want to include bullying as one of the abuses.  Bullying is not only found on school grounds, but at work and in homes and in various social media. Bullying is abuse… and should be “rejected” as acceptable in every area of our lives.

As a bully calls…
our fears arise…
for their contempt…
has little disguise.
But many are blind…
to abuse victims sustain…
but the victims know…
for they feel the disdain.
Cause bullies abuse…
harass and intimidate…
with words and acts…
threatening victims fate.
And this bullying occurs…
at schools and workplaces…
and even at home…
where considered safe places.
And these victims cringe…
when bullies call their name…
for control and intimidation…
is part of their game.
Whether in person or phone,
internet or other media online…
this bullying causes wounds…
which upon it’s victims we find.
And fear gets implanted…
with the abuses we expect…
but we can overcome…
when we stand up and reject.
For bullies like control…
with abusive manipulation…
but when we take control back…
there’s no power in their intimidation.

  2. Bullying was permitted when I was a child. A typical incident would be brother age 10 or 12, always wanted to read comic pages first from the Sunday paper. If I (younger sister) happened to get the paper the comics section before him he would throw a temper tantrum. When this didn’t get him what he wanted he began other tactics stepping on fingers sometimes and this is gross he would pick his nose and wipe it in my hair. Where were my parents at the time? Ignoring the situation. They were quite proud of the first born. “The bully”. If I would try to speak up to my mother by saying look at what brother just did to me my mother would always ask the proverbial question. ” Well what did you do to him ?” I learned to live in the world and just back down to bullies because that’s what I have been taught as a child. But it has given me a very keen awareness of how to spot a bully, outsmart a bully and maybe just write a novel about a bully.

    • I totally understand. Many are taught to just keep peace and give in to the bullying that takes place… which only leads to more abuse because lines never get drawn across what is acceptable and not. I encourage you to do as God leads you. He will us all that we go through to help others. God bless you!
