Her Scourge

Author:

Failures tantamount as crimes; haunting her for years.

Mentally beating herself for the mistakes she was forced to concede.

"She is cruel," they said, but they prosecute her everyday on unproven crimes she had made.

She was convicted unjustly by society.

Gone is her trust in the human race.

Her barriers were raised to avoid anymore pain.

Now, she is just an empty shell, striving to know what is her purpose.


Many people all over the world have experienced bullying, may it be in school, work place or in the social media. We do not know what internal turmoil they are fighting to continue living. Let's stop bullying and promote mental health awareness.

It is really hard to move on once they have convinced you that you are at fault. Mental health issues are still ridiculed by most people in our country. I hope this will be address before more damage can be inflicted.

I have been a victim of bullying before and I spent years proving I am not guilty of the conviction the society gives....Most keep on telling me to move on...But once you've been hurt...really hard to trust people again...And sadly the Philippines is not ready to take mental health seriously...it's still a joke for most people.... :(
