Message to the Bully – Spoken Word by Jamele Adams, performed at YES! Conference.

3 Nov

This is written and was performed by Jamele Adams at the YES! Conference 2011.  One of four pieces he performed that day, his words shook the minds and hearts of all in attendance.  We will be posting the other three of his rhymes individually within the next week.  Gotta give each their own blog so the power in his words is given the respect they deserve.  Check back soon!

Jamele Spittin' Rhymes

Message to the Bully

With your methods
You will not win
Vesuvian “Savant-Intelligentsians”
Comprehend
No matter how mean
You don’t expect this dream
To come back like love
To combat love; lost
In empty hugs and Shoulder shrugs
Cyber slugs and begrudged thugs
Love
Love
Love
Like hands out, hearts open
Peace pipes can’t reach the same level of smoking
The way our fire breathe have lungs open
Inhale candle 
Exhale Roman
Inhale Prometheus
Exhale Jesus
Inhale bully
Exhale Willie,
Or Jimmy, Lisa, Rosa, Mike, Bartholomew
Anyone that resembles unique you

 

Cool is no comparison to the majesty of the individual

 

Momma said follow no fool
There4
We will not give into slurs
We will not join you in saying that to her
We won’t use our words to beat him
Nor retract from your physical attacks
We won’t clown them in gym
We won’t back page their Facebook
Or sour their glitter on twitter by being bitter

 

Bully-use of superior strength or influence to intimidate
Bully-the act of repeated aggressive behavior to intentionally hurt
Bully-a person who is habitually cruel or overbearing, especially to smaller or weaker people

 

WE ARE NOT SMALL OR WEAKER PEOPLE
WE ARE MOUNTAINS OF VARIOUS SIZES

 

Check our DNA
We Do Not Allow
Love to not exist-be it ever-present
Like timeless birthday gifts

 

Love-a strong predilection or enthusiasm
Love-actions towards others based on compassion
Love-ineffable feeling of solicitude toward a person, such as that arising from kinship
We are won

 

October shouldn’t be anti-bullying month
It should be the month of self-esteem
And then have a calendar of 12 Octobers (know what I mean)

 

Larry King (murdered by Brandon MacAnary for asking on a date)
Eric Mohat (shot himself after someone said shoot yourself, you won’t be missed)
Jeremiah Lasater (shot himself in the head and had food thrown at him)
Megan Meier (hung herself in her closet after a comp message saying the world would be better without her)
Jaheem Herrera ( hung himself in his closet after being called gay, ugly and the Virgin after getting a report card full of A’s and B’s)
Justin Aaberg (gay bullying)
Phoebe Prince (cyber-bullying)

Forget money
Social security now means protection of your social identity
We are the saviors against these learned behaviors
Post Traumatic Bullying Disorder
Learning to live, with loveless-risks
And to those of us suffering with this

 

We care
We need you
We see you
You are not invisible
You are not forgotten
You are not alone
You can cry
Be angry
Be unsatisfied
Ask why
AND WE WILL REPLY
WITH THUNDEROUS SOUND
LOVE UNIFIED!

 Bullying is intimidation, harm and degradation of a human being, their character or the esteem of their spirit by another.  Breaking of one’s spirit by another’s pariah of insult and pain. The cure; love.
