David Wilson 11E Candidate Number: 9131 St. Bernard's Catholic High School Centre Number: 36449 Rotherham 17/09/03 MGM 5 Original Writing Assignment-Poetry The proceeding poem is called "No Escape". It was inspired by a news story I saw at the end of the summer holidays. It was about children of around my age committing suicide because of people bullying them and they were too frightened to tell a teacher or parent. I can sympathise with people who were bullied, because I was myself for a brief period in the first year of High School. I never even contemplated suicide for I told my parents straight away, and the head teacher sorted it instantaneously. ...read more.


Don't know what to do No escape Out of time, Crimson pool Brain matter on walls He thought of decorating Never thought of Grey Or Haemoglobin Red Too late now, No going back Life extinguished. The one responsible, The only suspect, The one who bullied him. In this next part of my assignment, I will analyse the poem to show how and why I chose certain words and phrases to make my poem what it is and always will be. The title and first few stanzas give the impression of solitary confinement or someone in prison, and the title is in red fading to grey that symbolises the blood and brains. Line 9 gives the impression of someone about to die, line 4 gives a similar impression. ...read more.


Stanzas 3 and 4 are written in a similar fashion to a suicide note to the person's parents. He is telling them that he cannot go on with it, and doesn't want to 'grass' on his intimidator for he believes that he will be beaten even more. Stanza 5 is the climax. Line 23, symbolises the blood on the carpet and line 25 gives the impression of decorating the bedroom with his blood and brains. Stanza 6 is the end of the poem and is a warning to what may happen to people if they are pushed too far by bullying. It also kind of tells you that something could have been done to prevent this from ever happening. In short, my poem tries to bring out the themes of bullying and the things people may do if they are too afraid to tell any one. ...read more.
