One
by Kiki Mackey

One
one girl
depressed
hopeless
alone.
One
one soul
filled with
anguish,
despair,
she thought no one cared
about her.
One
one LIFE
of neglect,
anxiety,
pain.
So much pain
that it drove her insane.
One
one moment
to think about everything
her life
her past
her family
her frie-...
One.
One thought
to take that gun
and put it to her head
One
one finger
to pull that trigger
and
BOOM!
One
one bullet
she's dead.
You knew her
you proably saw her
everyday
It took her
one
one moment
to take her life away.
Suicide.
All you had to do
was take
One
one moment
to talk to her
to tell her
that she is important
she has worth
that she could have been someone
if she had just had
One
one more chance
to live a life
filled with
hope
joy
acceptance
But NO!
she doesn't have that chance
she doesn't have that life
and all she needed was
One
one person
to save a young girl's life from
a terrible end
One
one person
to be her
friend.
One.
one friend
Will you be that friend?

had it but passed away
