As the child lay there sobbing, in an inconsolable manner With his eyes closed tightly shut His little hands covering both his ears His heart pounding with fear Sweat buds rolling down his forehead A small teddy bear near his leg He was lying on the ground, in a paralyzed position A hefty man stooping over him He was the caretaker of the orphanage Cursing the child & swishing a stick around He wanted to terrorize the children, enjoy their fear And make them obey him without a word Who would dare to stop him The scene taking place in front of our eyes Whilst on the outside of the gate Stood a group of people, including me Bystanders, stopping from our errands Looking at the heart-rending sight Feeling sorry for the little boy But not doing anything to help him The caretaker seeing us, though perturbed Shooed us away with a grimace With sad thoughts we all left We were as much at fault as the caretaker was. . .
This is just one case of bullying There are many of them still Cyber Bullying, Physical Bullying, Verbal Bullying and what not There's so much a person goes through Why can't we be selfless like a tree And let people be free with torture It's years since the incident, and I regret not taking a stand Though it'll remain with me until my last breath I pledge not to do it again Let us all prevent it in some little way Let us teach our children to be frank and share their fears and problems Let teacher's be educated to monitor bullying and Join hands with the parents to educate kids from a tender age about the ills of bullying Let the society change it's mindset and come forward to help the victims. .
Let the world go BLUE
Before you bully someone, don't forget "What goes around, comes around"
Before becoming a victim, don't forget "Stand for yourself, Your courage will scare the bully away"
Before you become a bystander, don't forget "You are a bully as much as the person bullying"
