Poetry

This week we have been discussing the poem “Bullying” by Jim Halligan and it inspired us to write our own poems on bullying.

Bullying

Bullying is not right.

It makes me feel so uptight.

My Mum says walk away.

My brother says stand and fight.

What should I do?

What should I say?

Just go away.

No, I just stand and cry.

They always tear my tie.

I feel so bad inside.

No one should bully or lie.

Cyberbullying

Calls texts and voicemails

Your telling prevails

Bulling isn’t fulfilling

Ever raging war against bullying

Reckless and pointless

Bullying is joyless

Unruly and daunting

Let’s stop bullying

Let’s start telling

You should always tell

It’s never your fault

Not always fights

Get ready for other types

 By Liam

*******************************************************************************************************

Cyberbullying

Cyberbulling, it’s terribly mean

And upon almost every mobile phone screen

A disgusting message is printed there

Designed to intimidate and scare

 

Enough to drive anyone crazy

It makes your confidence grow hazy

It makes your happiness wither and die

So all you want to d0 is cry

 

This creates a burden that’ll always be there

Weighing you down, here and everywhere

Each message, as it comes, weakens you to the core

And sadly, no matter what you do, it happens more and more

By Aoife

*******************************************************************************************************

Bullying

Be strong and confident

Using me as a kick pad

Lonely all day and all night

Leave me alone.

You hurt my feelings every day.

It’s not your fault.

Never, never again.

Get away and stay away.

 By Amy 

*********************************************************************************************************

Break time I hate

Understanding friends trying to help

Leave me alone!

Like a nightmare but I’m not asleep.

You hurt my feelings

I’m getting some help.

Never be afraid

Going home feeling sad.

By Ava

*********************************************************************************************************

Message to a Bully

Stop leaving people out of games,

Don’t you dare call me names.

I feel frightened, weary and sad,

I think you are really mad.

 

I think you should really see,

How you are hurting me.

You are really very mean,

Someday you will be seen.

 

By Renitha

********************************************************************************************************

Bothering bullies

Useless me

Lonely standing there

Looking at the children playing together

I wish they’d include me instead of

Excluding me. No, no, no!

Do you think I should tell someone? Do you really?

By Seán

********************************************************************************************************

Bullying

I hate bullying

My bully is tough

My brother says tell

My dog says “woof”

He tries to make me sob

He tries to make me cry

And I really hate it when

He calls me “small fry”

I sit on the step

Every single day

When he comes over to me

I say “Go away!”

But he won’t listen

He still picks on me

And I don’t know why

But this is the way it has to be

I don’t see why he’s so mean

This is the end of my poem

And it is written by me,

Cian.

Bullying

Teacher, teacher help me here

I am here in fear

Sometimes they kick me

Sometimes they pick on me

Bullies, bullies everywhere

 

Bullies all around

Understanding people help you

Lonely out in yard

Leave me alone

You are being mean

I want this over

Never do it again

Go away and never come back.

By Christina

Bullying

Beyond the name calling you become

Unsure of yourself but don’t

Lie, tell someone you trust

Like your family or friends.

Your family will help but

In case they don’t listen

Never let the bully invade your life.

Getting help is better than giving up

 

By Grace  

**********************************************************************************************************

 Be strong and walk away

Unbearable and mean

Loneliness is certain

Look for a teacher, Mum or Dad

You can stop the bully!

Ignore the bully

Never your fault

Go tell someone you trust.

 

By Cara

******************************************************************************************************** 

Bullying is very cruel

Under it all bullies are fools

Laughing at me as they push me off a tree

Like crocodiles trying to eat me

Yet still I do not tell

I fear that they will hurt me

Nearly every day they torment me

Go away is what I say to them, but they never listen

 

By Mark

******************************************************************************************************** 

Be strong, stand up for yourself

Unsure of what to do

Lonely feeling

Laughing with your friends then crying

You don’t have to worry

Inside you feel scared

Nothing will stop it unless you tell someone

Get away from bullies – never fear.

 

By Ella
*******************************************************************************************************

 Bullies

Oh no, here they come!

Nowhere to hide and I cannot run

They’ll catch me and they’ll be so cruel

Hit me, kick me and play with my mind

Tell me if I tell someone, I’ll regret it with my life

They’re mean, leave me out

Oh I feel feeble and they do worse:

They text me things and send me emails

Once I had a thought and it was silly to stand up

They’ll kill me

I’m so unsure, should I tell again

I really hate living the nightmare.

Why me?

I swear to take it away I’d give all my hair, an arm or a leg.

I don’t care.         

By Ciara  

*******************************************************************************************************

Bullies

Bullies, bullies they’re everywhere

They pick on me

They push me

They kick me

 

Bullies, bullies they’re everywhere

They take my tie

They take my shoes

Oh why do they have to lie?

 

Bullies, bullies, they’re everywhere

They pick on me

They push me

They kick me

 

  Bullying should not be a habit

Understanding people help you

Like it or not

Let them help

You must tell or they can’t help you

Intimidating and cruel

Never your fault

Get away.

By Oisín

************************************************************************************************************

Bullying

I used to be bullied, all the time

She called me names and punched and kicked

I was all by myself.

All my friends pretended to be hers just so they weren’t bullied

She was popular and pretty

But she was mean and jealous

I don’t know why.

Then I learned in class

To tell my parents

They did help

But she still bullied me

Then I stood up to her

 And that did the trick

She is now in Belfast – yay for me!

By Soraya  

********************************************************************************************************

 Bullies, oh bullies, I hate the way they snigger

Unfairness is what they love – the way they think they’re oh so bigger

Like when they pull my shirt and treat us all like dirt

Leaving me alone so I can quiver in such fear

Yet my family and friends help me, I don’t listen to what I hear

Imagining the pain for you may not be very easy

Now every day when I go to school, I just feel very queasy

Give me back my dignity, I shouldn’t always feel so silly.

 

By Tomi

 ********************************************************************************************************

 Bullying is nasty,

It’s about cruelty and jealousy

Exclusion, physical, cyber and emotional.

They exclude me from games

And they call me names

They’ll take my treats

And things that I need.

I just wish I could tell and look for help

Or should I stand up for myself

What would you do yourself?
