Favorite Quote:
“Every man dies - Not every man really lives.” ~ William Ross

Sometimes I lay in bed at night
I think,
I think about who will be the next to die.

So many kids,
Innocent kids,
They have died this year.

One is too many,
More is overkill.

I wonder why they were so sad,
Or why they were not paying attention.
If I could of helped them,
I would.

The truth is,
I will never know why.
So that just leaves me,

At my school, two kids had killed themselves within 2 years of each other. This is for them, and for every kid that has been taken away to early.
