The Boy That No One Knew:
There was a boy that no one knew.
That no one cared for.
That no one loved.
One day, the boy that no one loved went missing.
No one noticed.
No one missed him.
No one cared.
Several days passed, and an announcement was made.
The boy that no one knew, was no more.
There was quiet, and then the tears started.
People cried while others tried to stay strong.
Some kept remorse to themselves,
While others shouted it for all to hear.
As the sadness spread, conversations were started.
Memories were brought forth.
Happy memories
Sad memories
About the boy that no one knew.
Girls talked of their now lost love.
Boys talked of a dear friend that would be greatly missed.
Soon the small conversations merged into one.
One story about the boy that everyone knew, and everyone loved
And no one present understood why the boy had chosen to leave before the end.


You’re never as alone as you think.
Stop teen suicide

Emily is a former student of mine and obviously a very talented young lady.  This is great, Emily!  I like how stark the language is and the message.
