Harassing The Web

Harassing The Web

A Poem by Aliciaa Gay.

“If you bully somebody face to face, and they get upset, you see them cry and be hurt. When it's over the Internet, you can't see the emotional reaction and go along thinking it's no big deal.” Robin Kowalski
~*~*~*~
Jealous markups
Hatred plea
Endless battle
You’ve waged on me
Mind games stirring
Poets delight
Won’t run me down
This is not a fight
*
Easily ignoring
Anger spilling onto my page
Endlessly hoping
You will go away
Empty threats
Fear for my life
This isn’t the way
I choose to survive
*
Uncharted chapter
In this book you have spelt
Notion upon notion
Hiding what I felt
Giving you everything
I now refuse to flee
Never not knowing
What I was meant to be
*
Harassing messages
Texts cause me pain
Refusing to let you win this game
Losing my friends
And loved ones dear
I will not run
You want break me from here
*
Countless lessons
I’ve tried to teach
Savior or angel
Practice what you preach
Endless longing
Where to go from here
Refusing to give in
You won’t shake me with fear
*
Jealous markups
Hatred plea
Endless battle
You’ve waged on me
Mind games stirring
Poets delight
Won’t run me down
This is not a fight

Author's Note

Aliciaa Gay.
Cyberstalking. Cyberstalking is the use of the Internet, email or other electronic communications to stalk, and generally refers to a pattern of threatening or malicious behaviors. Cyberstalking may be considered the most dangerous of the three types of Internet harassment, based on a posing credible threat of harm. Sanctions range from misdemeanors to felonies.
Cyberharassment. Cyberharassment differs from cyberstalking in that it is generally defined as not involving a credible threat. Cyberharassment usually pertains to threatening or harassing email messages, instant messages, or to blog entries or websites dedicated solely to tormenting an individual. Some states approach cyberharrassment by including language addressing electronic communications in general harassment statutes, while others have created stand-alone cyberharassment statutes.
Cyberbullying. Cyberbullying and cyberharassment are sometimes used interchangeably, but for the purposes of this chart, cyberbullying is used for electronic harassment or bullying among minors within a school context. Recent cyberbullying legislation reflects a trend of makaing school districts the policy enforcers of such misconduct. As a result, statutes establish the infrastructure for schools to handle this issue by amending existing school anti-bullying policies to include cyberbullying or electronic harassment among school age children. The majority of these state laws establish sanctions for all forms of cyberbullying on school property, school busses and official school functions. However, some have also extended sanctions to include cyberbullying activities that originate off-campus, believing that activities off-campus can have a chilling and disruptive effect on children's learning environment. The sanctions for cyberbullying range from school/parent interventions to misdemeanors and felonies with detention, suspension, and expulsion in between. Some of these laws promote Internet safety education or curricula that covers cyberbullying.

This one guy...got bullied and beat up so bad he had surgery. And just because he was gay. And all the school said was "expect this if your gonna be so openly gay" He ran away, but now, he goes from school to school telling his story.
Very good Ali Gay (:

I've for sure been through this horrific ordeal from Quizilla, now I hear inbox wise that it could be starting again over here, at least relating to major plagiarism.

I like how you compared cyberbullying to a battle. Very true, well done.

Loved it and I think everyone should read this because we all need to be aware of the effects of bullying whether on the ineternet or in real life...good work.

This is why I'm so glad that the FBI turned their cyber-crimes office into an actual branch this is growing far more rapidly than any other branch in the law enforcement field. I hope that one day people won't be so cowardly to have to resort to hurting other people over the internet and actually be able to tell people how they feel instead.
