-There are more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of in your philosophy. (Shakespeare, Hamlet)

To push this computer off the edge,
is to push myself as well.
An addiction out of my control,
to the secrets they do tell

The screen, a screen,
to hide one from all view.
A knife, so sharp,
sharper than should be true.

Pushed off the edge,
by words alone,
typed without a thought
If only they had known...
the pain that they had wrought.

The author's comments:
These are the words that came to my mind when I thought about cyber bullying. I am so thankful that I do not know anyone firsthand who has been cyber bullied to the extent of suicide. Unfortunately, it is a lot more frequent than people, especially teens, believe.
