THE ABUSE SERIES – BULLYING


“Hey you!!!!

What do you think you’re doing here?

Come over here!!!!

Haven’t I warned you not to come anywhere close to my gang? Haven’t I???”

As soon as I heard those words I wished the earth would just swallow me up because I knew what was coming next

Maybe you know what’s coming next too but if you do not know then lemme enlighten you

~Hi, my name is Sawyer and I am a junior in high school

Ever since the very first day I stepped foot into my school, I have been taunted and haunted by a group of boys here.

What’s worse? I have no one to tell because it seems no one actually cares about me being bullied by some seniors.

Oh and lest I forget, apart from no one actually caring, I don’t think I can even tell because I’m actually scared of what they might do to me if they ever find out

So back to where I left off at the beginning…

I wished the earth would swallow me up because

They are going to beat the life out of me

Yes they are going to beat me for no reason whatsoever

They just find it fun to do that to me and trust me this is not the first time

When it all started, I tried to report the issue to the authorities but they didn’t take any serious action with them and after that whole experience, it just got worse.

Every where they see me I have to be punched or slapped or kicked or at worse be threatened with knives and all that. 

Now I’m scared of coming to school

I now detest a place a used to love

And I’m even scared of home because sometimes when I go home and my parents see all the bruises on my body they begin to ask questions

But I have no proper answer to give them so I just lie to them that I hit my head or something of that sort.

I’m scared because they are everywhere I go which means I get hit everywhere I go

In the washroom, the hallway, the classroom, the compound and anywhere else you can think of they are there

I wish this would all just end

I wish I don’t have to go through this every time

Sometimes I wish I could talk to someone but I can’t

I feel dejected and broken

I can’t take this anymore

The hate is too much for me

I want it all to be over

I just want to die

This is my Story….~

THE ABUSE SERIES

“Help!!! Help!!!! Somebody save me!!! Please don’t do this to me!!!

Please I beg you please stop 

Stop stop you’re hurting me!!!!

Please!!!!!……”

Do you know why she’s screaming? 

Can you imagine what she’s going through?

No? You can’t guess? Let me tell you then…

She’s wailing and screaming because someone is tearing apart her insides brutally

Can you relate to it now? 

Do you understand how she’s feeling? 

Yes, you’re right or maybe you’re wrong but that’s besides the point because the point is, she is being abused sexually. 

She’s being raped by someone who is capable of being her father, Uncle, brother or even her friend.

Why is he raping her when he knows it will ruin her life? 

Why would someone​ just get up and destroy an innocent girl’s future? 

Doesn’t he have a conscience? 

No feelings or emotions?

No heart or brain?

That child being raped might be the solution to a nation’s issues but look at her now

She will never be the same again

She will lose herself if she doesn’t get help

She will be traumatized for life

She won’t see the world the same again

All due to what??? 

One selfish, heartless man’s carnal, unruly and ungodly desires?

LET’S END CHILD ABUSE

LET’S STOP RAPE

NO MEANS NO
