Grab a plate and throw it on the ground.
                             
Okay, done.

Did it break?

Yes.

Now say sorry to it.

Sorry.

Did it go back to the way it was before?

No.

Do you understand?
Seriously though... Bullying and harassment are both terrible things that nobody deserves to go through.  

I know there have been similar versions to this, so please don't pester me about it. I just changed a few things.

Clever idea! I really appreciate how you compared bullying to something being broken. It's so real--once you've broken someone's heart or someone's spirit, they're broken for life. Genius.

This is certainly a neat idea, but it's a shame you didn't come up with it. It's not like you can't use the metaphor, many metaphors have been used time and time again they've become a natural part of our daily conversations, but when you add nothing new to the table the entire story rings false. There's no emotional pull, this poem feels fake and manufactured. Adapting others ideals is wonderful, but you need to find your own voice to speak up in.
Also, more of a side note that bugs me about DA in general, "(c) original owner" is not proper credit and is stealing and people need to stop being lazy about crediting. By no means am I meaning to attack you in saying that, I just wish people would bother to try and do some research instead of being so vague about credits, which would get them in trouble in the real world.

Sometimes bullies do truly feel sorry for what they've done to those who were bullied... yeah, people change because of what they did, that doesn't necessarily mean you have to begrudge them for the duration of their lives. Or you're just the person that clung to their petty misgiving long after that person has earned forgiveness. Live and forget, or don't live at all.

I completely understand your view, although some things you just can't forget. But, you are right, the majority of those who bullied their peers and then changed, in a positive way, because they realize just what they've done should be forgiven. It's those who continue the bullying and harassment no matter what that makes people think poorly on those who've changed.

Yeah I completely agree. There are some shit people. But this poem really feels like a guilt trip to me... Idk. I've been bullied, but I never really let it effect the things I do on a regular basis. I think it's best to move on, no?
