It Started With a Whisper
Kay Rice

It started with a whisper,
Nothing but a whisper.
A spark burned out of control,
A whisper to destroy an innocent soul.

“Oh she must be gay.”
The rumors did say,
“She doesn’t like a boy’s touch”
The rumors just became too much.

“Did you hear, he hangs out with thugs?
And now he uses and is selling drugs.
He can’t be believed, he lies too much,
Did you know that now he drinks too much?”

It started with a whisper,
A cruel and thoughtless whisper,
A fire burning out of control,
A whisper to destroy an innocent soul.

It started with a whisper,
By those who didn’t even know her.
It started with a vicious rumor’s bend,
Yet no one even bothered to ask him.

It started with a whisper,
Nothing but a whisper.
A spark burning out of control,
A whisper to destroy an innocent soul.

      • It is so sad. The effects of bullying is horrible. I was bullied in school and my son had his fair share of it…not as extreme, thankfully. And adults can be just as cruel. It’s unbelievable.
