Favorite Quote:
Live everyday to the fullest because you never know how many you have left.

There you are
No one paid attention to you,
Gave you a chance,
Or even became your friend.

But I tried
Even though the pressure of my peers held me down
I tried

I tried to ignore the rumors
I tried to get passed you rough exterior
I tried and failed

Seeing you alone gave me great sorrow
That’s when I suffered empathy for the first time,
Being alone and cheated

I moved away hoping to get away from the rumors
And start over
But no

I saw you
Two days ago
Bit I didn’t even say ‘hello’

Now I read the headline
Only to find that you are dead
My heart is ripped in two
I can’t help but cry
The guilt surrounds me like surran wrap
I can’t break free

Because just 48 hours ago you were alive
And some how your death could have been avoided
If I had just said “hello” and “I’m sorry”

I’m sorry
Please forgive me
For believing their lies
And leaving you to die

I’m sorry
I say, with my very last cry.
