It Burns

By Melissa Tryon, Cloyne, ZZ

It burns through his white eyes as it travels down his cheek. A mouth he can't talk through so cries that red tear for everyone to see. He's stuck inside of a wheelchair because his legs were burned to a crisp and his arms were sewn on. His fell out because of the cancer cells and it just won't grow back. He has slit his wrists so many times, the scars won't heal. He took so many pills, they can't be completely flushed. He had a bruise across his neck where his father hit him. Nobody wants to be his friend because he looks so broken and he feels so deadly.
