A poem a day for 2013 - day 25 - Bullies. Babies. Us.

What happened to us
That a fourteen year old girl
Is beaten 
Cries for help
Onlookers video 
For Facebook for YouTube
And now she is missing
Away from her family 
Reading posts with laughs
Pokes and jokes 
About her
About her begging for help
Have you ever begged for help
Did someone laugh in your face
While you were being kicked in the head
Who are we that this is funny
That a missing girl 
Beaten and shamed
San Diego
Carlsbad High School
I am sorry Baileigh
But what good is my sorry
My poem
My tear 
I am sorry that you screamed for help
And was videotaped instead
To be shown and spread online
For us to comment and
