Support AThinLine.org, Stop Cyberbullying

 

This… was pretty much some part of my life in high school, except for the fact that FaceBook or networking sites were still non-existent then. We had to take insults like this right into our faces, and in my case, etched in the boy’s bathroom. ~_~

Still continuing on to the cyberbullying issue, I came across this video while I was looking to compare life insurance. It’s about A Thin Line.Org, which is a website and a program by MTV that deals with cyberbullying, sexting, and other abuses that occurs in schools nowadays.

It’s actually a really, really great program, that I wish would be implemented in schools, colleges and even workplaces here in the Philippines. Being the texting capital in Asia, cyberbullying is pretty much just as prevalent here as it is in the US.  Probably just as worse, since I see articles of suicides by teenagers in the newspapers.

It’s scary to think that us, the older generation, are letting these things happen. There are still no laws against all forms of bullying, and there are a lot of schools, particularly here in the Philippines, that do not have anti-bullying policies. Things like the ones happening in this video should never happen to anyone in real life. ~_~

Anyway, calling to politicians, mind you that we need laws against cyberbullying and other forms of abuse through digital means, because believe it or not, THIS *points to video* is happening here too. ~_~

Of "Poetry"

Oh my goodness gracious God…

I can’t believe this thing is still here!!! *squeal*

Anyway, here’s the thing…

My sister and I share a room, and recently, it’s been a total mess. It’s so messy that our room looks like a tornado hit it or something. So my sister and I made plans to clean everything up tomorrow (which I hope we’ll do XD), but to get started on things, I thought I’d rummage my headboard again to see what stuff I should start throwing out. And suddenly, I saw my old clipboard containing my old Poetry stuff!

I can’t believe it’s still here! I thought my sister threw this away when she last cleaned our room (which was a year ago… haha! Just kidding!).

Some of the poems I wrote back when I was a teenager was still there, as well as the song I wrote (which I never really got to finish, since I’m no good writing sheet music and stuff XD), as well as my really gothic (meaning gruesome) short story. Man! I really can’t believe it’s still here. I could’ve sworn these things were burned or something.

So anyway, looking back, I was a really, REALLY romantic teenager. Sheesh. I can’t believe I was actually that naive when it came to love. Haha! Most of my poems were about unrequited love, and my crushes and stuff. Although, there were a couple of poems about previous boyfriends. XD

Man… Maybe I should have these framed or something. Haha! These are poems about my teenage years! Wow…

Anyway, I’m writing down one of the poems I wrote here. I remember that during the time I wrote this letter, I was watching my crush by the stair case, flirting with his girlfriend. I think I got so jealous at that time that I ended up making this (and I almost crumpled this poem because it sounded so corny).

So, without further ado, here is Zenkx’s futile attempt to be the modern Sappho or Shakespeare… XD

Jealousy
Jealousy is the pain that rips your heart
when the one you love loves another.
Jealousy is the sadness that drags your soul
when you know he’ll never be yours.
Jealousy is the burn that scars your mind
with infinite questions of what, who or why.
Jealousy is the tear that forms in your eyes
when you see him happy without you.
Jealousy is the invincible force that clenches your hand
when you know you’ll never get to hold his.
Jealousy is the punch that hits your stomach
when you see him happy with another girl.
Jealousy is the feeling that makes you weak
when you try to walk away from him.
Jealousy is the hand that turns your head
so he wouldn’t see the pain in your eyes.
Jealousy is the wind that pushes you away
from the scene of his happiness.
Jealousy is the knife that cuts your heart
when you know your love will never be returned.
This is Jealousy.
This is the emotion I’m feeling.
Now that I know that you’ll never be mine.
But then again, I guess you’ll never know it,
Since you belong to someone else.
Sheesh… I was such a hopeless romantic. XD
*By the way, since I technically “published” this poem here in Blogger, this poem is now under MY name, as stated in the Internet Copyright Law. So yeah, if any of you try to to plagiarize my work, I’ll sue your butts. XD*
