Don't curse the darkness-light a candle.


Not me
It can't be me
I am not the girl slumped in the backseat of that car
Bleeding but no pulse
I'm too young to die
Too young to have been killed in a freak accident like this

Not me
It can't be me
I am not the girl being draped under a sheet
The adults crying on the side are not my parents
How could a life this bright be over?
I have not lived long enough

Not me
It can't be me
I am not the girl in that coffin
Those mourners are not my friends and family
I have crushes, hobbies, relationships still
How can that be me?
I have so much to give in this world

Not me
It can't be me
I am not the girl being buried under dirt
That is not my name engraved into a headstone
This is not my final resting place-Please!
Please, it can't be me
Please, I can't die

Not me

This isn't supposed to be a depressing poem, just one to put things into perspective.
