R.I.P Amanda Todd



As she made her way to school each day
And see the children skip and play
She will tell the bullies in her school
Can you be kind and not so cruel

But as she enters she can hear them say
Here comes the slag you can't play
The calling starts and lasts all day
All she wants, is to run away

Cause those who bully don't understand
It can send a child to the promised land
It happened to her 4 years past eleven
But now she's safe up in heaven

No bullies here to make her cry
Cause up in heaven she will survive
Not like the friends she had known
Who left her frightened and all alone

To those who drove
Her to her grave
Your all bullies
So be ashamed

R.I.P Amanda Todd
