*** This story was written & contributed to by survivors of bullying. We suffered attacks daily at school & we survived. You can too. It feels like it will last forever and there’s no way out, but there is. Please tell someone, don’t stay quiet. It may not be “cool” to tell, but it’s less “cool” to be a bully!
Remember, the bullies have something broken inside them which makes them act out. The majority of bullies are or have been abused at home. Telling someone will also allow them get the help they need.
Bullyng has to end, and it starts with us! You are worth it! We all are! Thank you for helping us take a stand against bullying and for daring to be different!
He walks to school
He hides the bruises
underneath his clothes.
His mom don’t ask,
and he won’t tell.
All his friends,
don’t know him “oh so well”…
Nobody knows that he’s breaking?
Nobody knows where he’s been.
Everybody says that he’s broken,
But I think, he’s just bent.
oohhh… Dare To Be Different
She walks to class
with her hoodie on,
behind the mask,
she’s worn so long.
The teacher don’t hear
all the rumors spread,
or the notebook sayin’
how “I wish I was dead”
Who will care that she’s breaking?
Who will care where she’s been?
Everybody says that she’s broken,
but I think, she’s just bent.
ooohhh.. Dare To Be Different.
Who wrote the book on what is right?
What makes me so wrong?
I know my time here will be well spent,
cause I dare,
yeah, I dare,
I Dare To Be Different
Just another day,
with the damage done.
You never know how your words can cut someone.
Look into their eyes,
and maybe you will see,
how everyone is how their meant to be!
It’s time for us to care that they’re breaking.
Time for us to care where they’ve been.
You might say that we’re broken
but I think, we’re all a little bent.
Ooohhh… Dare To Be Different
Ooohhh… Dare To Be Different
