The heartbreaking poem a 14yr old girl wrote before she killed herself

Izzy Dix (pictured above), a gifted pupil who had ambitions to go to Oxford University, took her own life after complaining she could no longer cope with being bullied, both at school and online.

‘Izzy would come home and sob in my arms" Her mother Gabbi said "They called her “ugly”, “freak”, “frigid”. If she put her hands up in class, she’d be labelled a “swot” and they’d snigger at her, or make crude comments. They’d exclude her from events, tell her to go home, she wasn’t wanted. They’d turn their backs on her, literally. When she did come home, it didn’t stop, because it doesn’t, these days. They name-called her by text, then online. She’d log onto Facebook and get abuse. Then onto that awful site Ask.fm and be subjected to filth."

14 yr old Izzy committed suicide on September 17th. Her mother explained what happened that night
"When she came home from school that night, she seemed tired and a bit cranky. We had words because I wanted to watch The Great British Bake Off and she didn’t. But there was nothing to suggest she was going to do what she did. I remember she painted her nails - she was so meticulous about how she looked - then went up to her room and did her homework, had a shower, got her bag ready for school, laid out her uniform. I popped in and we had another chat about how the bullying was getting on top of her. It was nothing we hadn’t done 100 times before, and I’d always give her the talk about how she was stronger than the bullies.
‘Then I went downstairs while she got ready for bed. I had a cup of tea and a cigarette — she hates me smoking so I did it outside. I was gone 15 minutes, tops. In that 15 minutes my life was destroyed.’

When she came back inside, Gabbi went back upstairs to see if Izzy was getting into bed, but the bedroom door did not swing back as usual.
‘Something was blocking it, and it was Izzy,’ she says, and breaks down completely.
Her description of the hours that followed is too awful to relate in detail, but she managed to get her daughter’s body down and dial 999, then ran hysterically into the street. Neighbours tried to revive Izzy while she ‘just took off’.


‘It’s all a blur. At one point I ran into a car. A police officer had to restrain me.
‘I remember him saying, “I am so sorry to have to do this” as he got me to the ground.’

Not long before her suicide, Izzy wrote a heartbreaking poem about her ordeal. She called it I Give Up. See it below

I don't know about suicide. But may she find rest. I'm just short of words.
Back then, I went to a boarding school in kaduna and in that school, I faced all types of abuse; physical, spiritual, etc. It was hell. Many times I wished I would just die. It reduced me to nothing. I had issues with my self for years after leaving that school. So, even if my bullying was not online, I can say I understand how she felt.
Parents should listen to their children

Doesn't she look in the mirror? She is beautiful!! White kids should be taught how to deal with being bullied and how to be a little sensitive to other people's feelings. They are just taking their liberal nature to the extreme!!! I was bullied as a kid in primary and secondary school, I grew a thick skin to get through it. What a total waste of a beautiful soul. She should never have given up, she should have waded the storm, proven herself and left her bullies in a cloud of dust. Instead the sickos would now move on to another victim having successfully ruining a beautiful mind.

This girl didn't see half of what I saw in school, its not the bullying that's the problem, its the orientation of the victim. She didn't learn to be self dependent, she didn't learn that she came to this world alone, she didn't learn that kids will always be kids and will continue to make harsh comments if they see its getting to you. So sad she fell to childish remarks. If you have kids, pls raise them well.

So saddening......... but I stl believe many a child has gone thru more dan ds nd stil survived amidst it all. I still maintain my stand, suicide is 4 weaklings. We shd raise our children 2 alws believe in themselves evn wen others do not, we shd show dem d beauties they possess inside n outside, particularly we shd introduce d word of GOD 2 dem early in life, so dat evn wen we r gone nd d chips r down, dey cn weather evry storm dat comes their way.

I was a victim myself. Ul never know how it feels except it has happened to u. I was isolated, called names, called fat, shy, stunted growth, al sort of names, I always wondered why nobody wanted to be my friend, or why I was always the only one siiting on a canteen table, no1 wanted to talk to me, while d ones that did always wanted to confirm if I was a freak. Even the guys rarely asked me out, I didint undastand it cus I was brilliant nd beautiful. Yes I am a nigerian nd a very lovable person but I was constantly being bullied. I hav contemplated suicide on many occassions, I've even come close to putting a knife on my stomach but I just couldn't do it. It stil hurts rily bad but I will survive.

@Anon 12:17,you have spoken correctly. You don't see us committing suicide. Take for instance,the story of the chinese kid who jumped from a 30storey building simply because his teacher asked him to, that sort of thing can NEVER happen here. Infact,its the pupil who'll push the teacher off the building. We are very strong,that's why we can go anywhere in the world and survive the harsh conditions.

Bullying can get to anyone wether black or white
I was bullied in school and I am Nigerian . You need to experience being called MIss Outcast or being a reject ....not being invited to any party, rejected on all fronts and being made to seem abnormal especially in your formative years when all you crave is peer acceptance.

Till you ve experienced it you have no right to pass comment on the lady so back the fuck up!!!!.

Because an average nigerian child faces it everyday does not make it right. Been bullied can be an emotional wreck on an individual. The issue to be addressed is what is being done to those who bully others?
Should they be allowed to get away with it?

The anonymous commenting that the whites are weak must be very ignorant. If you have actually experienced bullying you will not be saying this. You think it only happens to whites? Bullying is a mental torture and no child should have to experience it. I guess you never heard about a black kid that jumped off the window because of bullying.?Poverty and hunger has nothing to do with bullying.

Not with what I went through in high school, nd I dare not mention to my parent cos they have nothing to do about it, they just want u to read your books. My son nd I have a huge battle to fight against #bully cos he is a soft boy nd I see people taking advantage of that...

I dnt really knw what to say about this I knw some kids are stronger than others so I cnt really blame d poor girl for taking her own life, bulling is very bad it takes a strong kid to overcome it. I remember all d aweful things my grand mother said to me whn I was growing up it really hurt people bt I was strong and I overcame it. And I hv make it a duty to tell my kids how beautifula, intelligent and specially they are. So if anyone bully them outside they fight back or simplly tell them they jealoousy of them. Parents needs to help their kids at home show them love and tell them how important they so that whn someone tell them otherwise outside they wouldn't take it to heart. RIP littel one.

If there is anything I love about African parents is their coaching on how to handle bullies for their kids. If your bully is older than u they advise u to ignore them,report them to the authority and if the worst come, they themselves stand up to go and bully the bully. But if u cry home that u were being bullied by ur peer, they will beat u and tell u to go back and fight such bully. This is not teaching children violence. It is teaching them how to face their fear and worst enemy. Most time reassuring talk to the children work but actions taken by them to face bullies matter. Bcos believe me bullies are all around us #ASOGE#

People always say the whites are weak that's why this happens a lot in the western world and not in the black world. But to me that assumption is false, its just two different worlds and two different perspectives its not about weakness and strength.
Bullying in any form and in any world is wrong and can lead to such a sad end. Its not about being white or black.
Rest in peace sweet one.

I have heard of two cases of suicide as a result of bullying in Nigeria. Yes some people are not able to withstand it much of which is no fault of theirs. Most bullies come from homes which lack respect for human feelings, homes which one would rather call dysfunctional. They take out their horrid behaviour on the perceived weak ones among their peers or juniors. Bullying can be extremely traumatic. MAY her soul rest in peace

what pains me is that she has added to the population of hell. All these white people are annoyingly very weak, i guess it is as a result of their new found life of fantasies. it wasn't like this before. how can somebody take his/her own life cos his/her mates talk to her in a way he/she doesn't like? the girl is even English, and it was the English who said that'silence is the best answer given to a fool' or better still talk back at them. mcheew!!

I just got in from the burial of a friend who was cut down at his prime by illness..then I come on here and read that heart wrenching poem, tears blur my vision, as much as I want to strangle the stupid teenagers who dared shun such a beautiful girl, I ask..why the f*** would you take your own life, I stood at the side of my friend's grave this afternoon and felt the heat of the sun, my sweat could fill 10 buckets but I thought to myself I wish the eversmiling guy I knew could still sweat but he was forever cold...with tears in my eyes I ask this pretty young girl "who dare you take your life?"

Whites are weak?? I don't like when ppl say this. Did u see her age wriiten above? Of course everyone is weak at that stage. You just don't know what it feels like to be isolated....no man was created to be alone and that's how they kept her. Her mum shuda changed her school or sort a councellor. I hope westerners take drastic steps in curbing this bullying thing. Tee

Thats what i keep telling all you heartless judgemental people who come on blogs to take out ur frustration misery and bitterness on others,stop bullying celebs, with ur cruel wicked comments its wrong,when goldie was alive a lot of you said so many mean hurtful things about her,noting she did was ever good enough for you demons,i remembered one witch among you who said she will never be able to break into the american music market,when she was pictured with ciara,that she will only end up washing dishes for her,i mean who says a things like that,i hope her ghost hunts whoever that dirty whore is(i mean how do you guys sleep at night)and when she died,you idiots brought ur evil selfs here and started saying good things about her,bunch of hypo's,if annie was not a strong woman all ur mean and evil comments are enough to make her take her life,and the worst part is that when the person gets mad, you idiots will ask him/her to grow a thick skin as if the person is made of wood(but you pigs will not hold words back if a co commenter insults you or call you names)for as many of you that have come here to say one hurtful thing or another about people you dont know personally,and made them cry themselves to sleep every night,may the almighty punish you abundantly may he make ur enemies greater than you and may he also make you work and sweat for your age mates,you all would rot in hell for all the tears people have shed cos of you,i hate coming on this blog and that of ladun's,cos i feel its a breeding ground for evil hearted people,cos every time i come to this two blogs my heart is always burning with anger from the comments i read, and sometimes i cant believe they where actually written by human being,no wonder the bible says when God saw how wicked the heart of man was,he regretted creating man.
sincerely a very pissed blog visitor

Whites re crazy bullies!#FREAKY#

True story said...

Well, i would not put on the usual blame that the whites generate psychological problems for themselves because their physiological needs have been met.

The truth is this happens everywhere. Certain children develop charateristics that may not be socially commonly attractive to their peers. This differentiates them negatively.

Different kids have different responses to this, depending on their psychological make up and socialization process. Some go into depression, some struggle to fit in, some are not even bothered and some develop hateful tendencies which will be manifested in the form of violence when they have the opportunity.

It is left for parents to teach their kids what is important in life. Suicide is never a solution.

I grew up finding myself different from my peers and hence i had few friends. Matters became worse when i gained admission into the university. Dating was a big problem as i was a social misfit. I seemed externally ok, but inside of me was a boiling rage to pay the society back. Luckily, my payment was not a violent one. I graduated, made lots of money and had to opportunity to fill up any hole in my line of sight. The anger to conquer and dehumanize women was my anthem. i counted scores in huge amounts. After some time, i noticed that these fellows were actually not bad people - and i stopped.

This brings to mind a reflection on the fact that we are on earth doing what we are not supposed to do. When you read the bible, you will realise that everything not Godly, is filled with emptiness.

I was bullied alot in primary and secondary school. And till this day, I have lost my voice and identity. Sometimes I wonder if I have any self esteem left.times. I literally detach myself from everyone and I am constantly wondering what people think about me. I have vowed to KILL any one who attempts anything similar to my children, when I have them. Bullying destroys kids!! I'm alive but I'm not living!! And yes I'm no ajebutter!! I went to a regular school in Africa, very similar to Nigeria.

how could she do that to her mom, dis child is wicked... i pity her mom sha..

Yea u'r right, the white are too weak. An average nigerian can't do this and beside if we look @ it the other way, it Is satanic! Bullying is what the devil has afflicted in the hearts of teenagers so as to destroy them its was so unfortunate that the mother was not able to guide her emotion rather she was busy watching TV and smoking, I can imagin what the poor gurl has passes through so painful and moreover the white should do something about BULLY cos its becoming a pressing problem for the teenagers
