Nothing

Sitting inside the fence
Watching my life go by
Everyday, a little more dense
Everyday, willing to die.

In honesty,
For I have nothing else,
I've tried.
I have scars
Memories.

I feel so unwanted,
Unloved,
Useless.
Underestimated.

My mother says she doesn't want me anymore.
Another boy in the halls tells me to kill myself.
I want to shout at him,
"I've tried! I have!"
But I keep my head down,
Silent.

Brother says he hopes I die.
Boyfriends tell me I don't matter.
I have no worth.
I tried trading my life in,
Letting those mean boys win,
But even Death herself doesn't want me.

Someone, anyone, take me.
Death
Happiness
Murder.
Someone steal me away.
End my pain
Someone, please.
Come and save me.

Where did the feelings that I had go?
I used to be so sensitive.
Now, I'm nothing.
Just like they all say.
