Look Inside a Copy of Bullied Dying to Fit In

Bullied: Dying to Fit In  has been nominated for the Advocacy / Social Justice Award for the 2019 In the Margins Book Award.

"In the Margins strives to find the best books for teens living in poverty, on the streets, in custody - or a cycle of all three. Our charge is to seek out and highlight the best fiction and non-fiction titles (Pre-K through adult) of high-interest appeal to youth ages 9-21 living in poverty, on the streets, or in custody, with a preference for marginalized books (small, independent press or self-published). Youth feedback is a critical factor in both book nomination and selection."

I will be but a memory is what I've been told
My locker will be emptied, my clothes will be sold

No will miss me, or so they type
Sure, my death will be news, until the next hype

Stupid, dumb, ugly, fat, loser lame
You should die they said, imagine the fame

Newspapers, Television, Facebook, Twitter
Problem is, my parents said they didn't raise
no quitter.

Miss me, don't miss me, I suppose that's your
Will your heart even break?
Will your eyes become moist?

Do it
Don't do it
Not sure which one will win
Die before it's time
Heard that's a big sin

Stupid, dumb, ugly, fat, loser, lame
How I wish I could start over
How I hate this hurtful game.
Meet my friend
Who goes by the name of unbelievable pain
It resides deep inside my heart
And courses through my veins
Thanks to your unbelievable pain
Life is no longer fun
Then, more vicious verbal vomit spews forth
And everything comes undone
That is when it ventures outside
By rolling down my cheeks
Encased inside many salty tears
The only way it speaks.
How should I end it and if I did, would you care?
I could cut my veins open and let blood ooze everywhere.

How should I end it and if I did, would you run?
I could wrap my lips around the barrel and pull the trigger of a gun.

How should I end it and if I did, would you feel a sharp
I could noose a belt around my neck, jump off a chair and hang.

How should I end it and if I did, would you let out a shrill?
I could get a glass of water and down a bottle of sleeping pills.

Why should I end it? It's because of your hate.
You say hurtful things, you spit on my lunch plate.

You say you're just kidding, but that's not the truth.
Want to know how I know?
I'll tear open my chest and show you the proof.

My heart is riddled with pain, hurt and misery.
Why should I end it?
It's because you won't let me be.

Maybe I'll fight back...maybe, we'll see.
But, if I should end it just know this one thing.
I ended it because of you, you cruel, heartless, mean thing.

"Bullied, Dying to Fit In should be in every school library, therapists’ offices, and homes. It is a must read for parents, students, educators and mental health professionals."

Bullying is when someone gets teased, made fun of, gossiped about or physically harmed. We hear stories all the time about kids being bullied. This occurs at school, on the playground and for older kids – online, which is called cyber bullying.  The worst stories about kids being bullied end in tragedy and grief.  Bullying can cause low self esteem, thoughts of and, or carrying out suicide.

Since cases of bullying became national headlines, the focus has been on the victims and their heartbroken, frustrated parents. And rightly so. But, what about the bullies and their parents? After all, they are the reason this issue came to light in the first place.

Home may be where the heart resides, but, so too does disrespectful behavior, like bullying. There are some exceptions; (abuse/mental health), but most kids tend to mimic mom and dad. After speaking with several teachers, who met with parents when a bullying issue arose in their classroom, one common thread was woven through the fabric. The parents of the bully were as unruly and belligerent, if not more-so, than their child.

Rock Paper Spirit Daily Author Interview

Here on Rock Paper Spirit, I’ve been featuring a lot of author interviews recently and today I’d like to welcome Normandy Piccolo. This interview won’t be set anywhere crazy or weird because the book we’re going to be talking about is Bullied: Dying To Fit In. I feel that an on-location interview wouldn’t be appropriate for this, so we’re just going to have a chat, but I’ll following my usual line of questioning.

Normandy, welcome! Can you tell us a little bit about Bullied: Dying to Fit In and what prompted you to write it?
Well, one day I read a story about a young girl in New York who had committed suicide on the train tracks because of being bullied. I had read other bullying-suicide stories before and they were terribly upsetting. But there was something about this girl’s story that hit home. I cried and tried to understand why I had such an emotional reaction. And it was in that moment I realized the depth of pain I had been carrying inside of me from my own experiences from being bullied. I knew I had to heal, but I also knew I never wanted someone to feel the way I had been feeling for most of my life. Before I knew it, Bullied: Dying to Fit In came to be.

Punch me
Slap me
Say mean things about me
Guess what?

How can you not believe
