When Will The Bullying Stop?
When will enough be enough?
How long can we blame it on the excuse of mental illness?
Every day pushed closer to the edge
No one to care or listen until it's too late

Why can't we find more compassion to prevent something tragic?
It's gone too far when someone feels they have no other choice
Lingering resentments should never be allowed to boil over to murder
Letting someone hurt so much they feel they have no other recourse is unacceptable

The time is now to make a change
However hard it may be
Everything must be done that is in our power to stop the relentless merry go round

Better some hurt feelings than one more massacre
Until some respondability for our actions is taken none of us can feel 100 percent safe
Life is not a game nor a reality tv show fighting for ratings
Life is doing unto others as you would have done unto you
You have a choice everyday how to treat your fellow human being
It's the only way
No more mean or cruel words to cut down a soul in despair
God knows the buck has to stop somewhere

So not why not let it stop with us?
The answer to the end of the violence is right in front of us
One by one we must accept it or I'm afraid worse may be yet to come
Please can't we all stop and listen before it's too late?

Great work Ramona. Sadly violence exsists in the nature and we humans aren't immune to it. The worst part is that we explain and legitimise our violence, and I am scared with ever growing, I call it, civilised and modern super violence, by the most powerful and some who just have the opportunity to commit violence. I also wish for the peace and harmony, yet it will never come. There will always be somewhere in the world at least one mankind is bullied and being subjected to some form of violence, very sad.

Wish you all the best,
