Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, than to remain with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat


Her wrists and heart are cut and bleeding
Because no one her cries are heeding
Every day she wonders why
God doesn’t just let her die

All her life she’s tried to hide
The tears she’s crying deep inside
The anguished pain she never shares
The sounds that bleed that and no one cares

She’s always tried to be the kind
Of girl you’d think was worth your time
But just because her friends are few
She doesn’t matter much to you

You walk on by without a glance
Never giving her a chance
All she needed was a smile
Someone to show her life’s worth while

But today at school she pulled a gun
Because you weren’t that someone


The author's comments:
We never really know what's going on inside of someone. Even if they seem happy, they may be on the verge of suicide. You don't know. I think that we should work hard to let people know that they matter to us.
