Adorned for all to love and see

April 30, 2019

Is this the symbol of a girl’s oppressed lonely heart?

Once hiding beneath a pelt which cast a long shadow?

Her smile we long for, is now tearing a world apart,

with no chance to heal a families hurt or sorrow.


Never again to be donned, or hear her tender breath;

her hat once proudly adorned for all to love and see.

In respect, all Akubra’s bowed to honour her death;

an escape from a cruel world, a bright girl wished to flee.


So when a hat fits, should we now stop to remember?

Or are consequences still lurking within its shade?

Let’s tilt our brims, to acknowledge a doll so tender;

then ask, how many more tormented lives will be laid?


As Dolly lights up her pure world, along with new mates;

her final humble message is passed on for us all….

Always be kind and speak out, even when your voice shakes;

for more voices, will help you stand up stronger and tall.




               In memory of Amy “Dolly” Everett, Born 1st May 2003 .

               A victim of bullying; who ended her life at just 14 years of age.
