See that girl sitting in that chair
Frowning and hiding behind her hair?
She's stuck in a battle within her mind
What part of her will she leave behind
she closes her eyes and counts to three
all she wants is to be free
she lives in a place where she is judged
all she ever does it get bugged
the war in her mind you would never know
she will never cry or let her pain show
you see that smile its painted on
To stop you from knowing everything's wrong
Sitting alone in the dark
She thinks if she goes she won’t leave a mark
If you would of told her she was perfection
You would of leaded her from the wrong direction
Instead you tossed her feelings aside
So please don’t be surprise about her suicide
Or smile like you have nothing to hide
She might have lived if you even tried

Whether its your feelings or you thought it would make a good poem, it's great either way. I love the rhyming. It made sense. And it's real life. Amazing poem.
