The Right Thing

she woke up one morning
a smile on her face
life was good
she walked to school
because it was the right thing
and she gave the girl
a cut in her pride
she had a salad for lunch
because it was the right thing
and she laughed at the girl
indulging in cake
because it was the right thing
and she cheated on her test
and when she got home
she told her parents she hated them
because it was the right thing
and then she went to bed
without dinner
and her phone in her hand
because it was the right thing
she woke up the next morning
and swallowed a bottle of pills
for becoming what she loathed
wasn't it
the right thing?
