- Me, Myself, and I
- Sam Leeson 19th August 1994-5th June 2008.
Sam was a friendly, funny, caring & creative young boy. He enjoyed rock & heavy metal music. His favourite band was Slipknot. Sam was proud of his individuality & wasnt afraid to be himself.
Due to selfish, ignorant & heartless idiots who appear anonymously over the internet as there nothing but cowards, Sam hung himself on the 5th June 2008. All the moderators for this group have seen the comments Sam received after his death & we hate to think how Sam felt as a young & vulnerable individual felt after being cyber-bullied because he was supposedly 'emo'. (Bearing in mind these cunts never met him)
But anyway, this group isnt about the bullies who played a huge impact in Sams death, its about allowing Sam to rest in peace & remembering the memories we shared with him & celebrating the life he had.
R.I.P bab, always in our hearts & never forgotten. We all miss you so much.
That Trademark smile,
& your awesome hair,
Hid all that truth
You simply couldn’t bare.
You warmed up our lives
Like a thermal cup
Instead of showing your feelings
You kept your chin up.
Just one of these days,
I wanna see your face
To know your in a good way,
And save me a place.
Was it you that had to die
Sitting up there
Looking down from the sky.
Even though your gone,
We know your still near
It’s truly because of you
That we show no fear
Against bullies and cowards
Put you in such a bad state
that you gave up your life.
This whole thing,
It could have been prevented.
But instead now
Family & friends’ lives have been dented.
Theres a cloud above us all,
Its quickly turning grey.
We’ll be up there with you soon mate
& together we’ll mosh all day.

Well tbh, you often hear about suicide on the news etc..but when you actually experience it from a friend or someone you know, the shock sets in & you realise how serious the matter is. And then to top it all off, you find out a young boy at the tender age of just 13 feels the need to end his life because he is unable to cope with issues that he shouldnt have to deal with...the issues including bullying. Now im not guna sit here & type that ive never been nasty to someone or argued with someone & called them names because then i would be lieing, but theres a point where you realise how bad you are effecting that person & in this situation, Sam Leeson.
Nobody knows the actual reason of why he ended his life, but the biggest suspicion being that he was bullied because he was emo. Now, i think this whole discrimination to emos needs to stop now. Most people are ignorant & they have no other opinion but to say 'all emos are suicidle & all emos slit their wrists'. For a start..self harming doesnt make you emo, emos get a lot of negative publicity & predujice which may lead them to self harm...not to say that all emos do. And for that matter self harming has been around longer than the whole 'emo cult'. I think people need to realise that everyone is different, if we were all the same, whats the point in individuality & opinions.
The majority of people who discriminate & bully emos, are self-centred & ignorant just because someone is different because of what they wear, their lifestyle & the music they listen to...this is pathetic, people need to realise the whole steriotypical groups are getting out of hand.
But anyway i just felt its about time people start to realise how they can play a huge negative effect in peoples lives just because of the way they badly veiw things.
And if you are reading this & are one of the people who bullied Sam, i hope you live with a guilty conscience for the rest of your life & you realise what you have paid part in.
Sam was such an amazing guy, so much to offer & always smiling. I remember when i first met him at the bustop & he was standing there with his little smile and awesome hair which i loved . He would never hurt anyone & thats part of the reason he had to put up with thy bulling for so long. He was so easy to talk to & was comfortable to be around. I cant stress enough how much i symapthise for his family...especially Katie Leeson, his sister but one of his closest freinds. I hope one day Katie, you can wipe out the bad image you must have to remember the good memories you had with Sam.
Sam, dude R.I.P, atleast in Heaven you can be who you want to be & not have to suffer from the torment anymore. You'll always be remembered & missed highly. Save a place for me in Heaven dude, we shall mosh to thy fall out boy!
Love you dude.
Just wish i could have been there for you.
