An Honest Epitaph

She Told Us Her Thoughts
About How She Love Her Life
She Wasn't Honest

We Tried To Help Her
Throughout Her Lengthy Ordeals
Conderns Came Too Late

No One Was Ready
As Living Hands Took A Life
Years Wasted In Death

A Cold Epitaph
Her True Name Becomes Dispair
Death Serves No Justice

Awesome Poem! Let's people think about things some of them don't like to think about. I enjoy pushing the limits, your poem is admirable.
