Favorite Quote:
Be the change that you wish to see in the world.


Two small pricks, invisible to the human eye

Blood, deep red as the horizon, pours out internally

Oh the pain, how it surges up my neck, tighter in grasp

The words pound through my head

Yet, fall short to soft silence at the tip of my tongue

The struggle, once intense, now slowly fading into nothing

Face turns purple, wounds grow darker than a midnight sky

Pain now visible, but never felt

The snake had no wrongdoing, but natural instinct

For the real killer, was mental poison


The author's comments:

I want this poem to be seen because it is mental health awareness and I think it could really help teenagers. The snake represents society and how people think that society is the one hurting people, but it is really the individual that does it to themselves.
