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 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

  1. It’s too bad, there is no doubt about it izzy must have been an intelligent girl, going by what she’d composed in the poem, she’s lacking in faith & religious up-bringing, life at times can be full of dissappointments,people may hate U , but God loves U. All U need is to be earnest in ur prayer’s , she must ‘ve been posses by an evil spirit, may God deliver us from the evils & protect us. Amen

  2. this is alarming. The rate @ which kids are bullied and called names in d western world is awful. And i dnt see y u shud give in wen people call u names but those white kids are all dsame,d give up wen everyone calls ’em names. If she had had Christ, she wud hv knwn dat its nt wat dey say dat matter but wat God thinks about u as His child,dis is very sad;anoda wasted destiny. Rest In Peace and may d Good Lord accept ur soul.

  3. I almost shed tears reading the sadden poem of that future – great promising child! Let’s learn to show love to EVERYBODY afteral, what’s abeauty that fades off in short while

  4. It’s saddening to hear this.A rising girl with such precocious gift had decided to terminate her life.The irretrievable mistake she made was to erroneously believe that her destiny was in the hands of those who bullied her.Izzy,if u were alive,I would have told u that your destiny is in your hand.The most painful thing to me is that no suicide person will make Heaven

  5. This issue is becoming more and more disturbing. And it’s like this kids kill themselves cos of the ‘ I won’t be the first to kill myself cos of being bullied syndrome’ . In the end a sin is a sin and you are what u make others see you for.

  6. i think the girl lacked self esteem, she did not have the right perception to life and above all she did not have knowledge of God who made her in His image. may her soul rest in peace

  7. May her gentle soul rest in peace. I think parents in the western world should learn how to discipline their children, if you spare the rod you spoil the child. Life itself belongs to God, no man has the right to take it. Take your children to church, educate them on the word of God,for it is the only right foundation. Sorry for your loss.

  8. DEAR IZZY DIX, Your Poem Suddenly saddened My Entire Day,I wept because You were Determined NEVER to Fall To Their ILL-Remarks BUT Your Faith CouldN’T withstand The Emotinal pains. I Wish I Had The Opportunity To Encourage YOU the more. I LOVE YOU(IZZY DIX). I PRAY,That GOD Will Have MERCY upon YOU and ACCEPT YOU into HIS Kingdom(HEAVEN.) REST IN PEACE

  9. Honestly, a gr8 destiny has bn terminated now. But d major problems our youths r facing lies in d hands of our parents. 2 put a stop 2 all dese, our parents shld knw dat it’s not enouf 2 send us 2 skol, but 2 equally us on d orda tins we hv 2 knw abt lyf lyk Identifyñ ourselves, developñ ourselves & lots more. RIP, luv
