End Up Dead

Show me
To the world.
I'll be
Seen, not heard.

A pretty photo,
A lovely face.
What would I know,
Wrapped in linen and lace?

So young,
With so many years ahead.
Like a song unsung,
And a story unsaid.

The future will hold
Challenges of every kind.
They want to mold,
To conform my mind.

They tell me lies
That fill my head.
It's a surprise
If I don't end up dead.

The author's comments:
This was actually inspired by some recent events involving some of the students at my school. They got involved in something that they should've and it broke my heart to see them wasted. So this is what I wrote about it. My "friends" could end up dead because of what they're getting into and I can only stand by helplessly and watch...

Ironically, another similar experience happened this school year as well, but the results were much more drastic. MINE.
