When they saw her sliced up arms and thighs Because they couldn't believe Someone with such a childish Angelic face could really do that to herself And no one thought to say anything When she silently screamed out for help So off she went with some rope And no hope left To the bathroom In the shower Where she hanged herself By kicking a stool out from under her feet After all she was short and tiny Which leads us to today An entire year later Where she could've been an entire year older An entire year happier If someone had said something Thankfully she found her God But that doesn't justify an 11 year old girl's Suicide
Unfortunately, this is a true story about my younger sister's best friend last year. A few of the girls in their "squad" noticed the girl in the poem was cutting herself and said nothing to anyone, not even the girl. I strongly believe with all of my heart that had somebody spoke up my sister's friend could still be here. I say this because I could have been that girl a few times but I've always been talked back to life. So please, if you notice things like that, SPEAK UP , it could save a life
Just open your mouth please I'm tired of watching you die from the inside But you say your heart resides in mine but all the the signs say different and I can only bear witness to the pain you show every day Or the anger you show towards me makes me question even if you want me to stay
This silence is unnerving. It's filling the room Filling the spaces Where you normally are. I've left the door open To give you a choice, But all you do is stand there. You know I would do anything Just to end this fight. Would have done everything To make things right between us. But you don't want to talk When I'm ready to listen. & you don't want to listen When I'm trying to talk. You were the only thing that made sense to me But now You've made me senseless.
So please, Say something Anything To show me that you're still there. Tell me that you're sorry That you don't want this to be the end. But if not, Please shut the door on your way out.
