She looked into the mirror one more time.
She opened her pill box and swallowed a handful.
She lay down on her nicely made bed,
And stared at the ceiling.
What had changed?
The world?
Must have been.
Technology everywhere,
Fewer resources,
Gas prices sky-rocketing,
Global warming…
Ipods, Macs, and high quality television.
Her breathing became harder,
She swallowed and took in a deep breath.
Stress, Back-stabbers, Bullies….
The list was long.
A single tear slid down her face as she remembered her years as a child.
She smiled as her eyes began to close,
“I’m sorry; I love you, goodbye…”
Her hand fell to her side
With a note held within.
