Why are you crying?
Why are you sitting there alone?
Why are you shaking?
Why are your eyes pleading?
Why couldn't you sleep last night?
Why are you doing badly in school?
Why can't you trust anyone?
What is that mask you're holding?
Why do you wear it all day?
Why do people hate you so much?
Wait, what are you doing now?
Why are you looking at that knife?
No! Stop testing the blade!
Put it down, there you go.
You are stronger than that.
Keep the scars on the inside;
Keep the hurt and anger on the inside.
Don't let it out and don't trust;
That will only hurt you more.
Smile, even if it hurts to.
Don't worry, you have some time left.
The night will end eventually.
Two more years and you're free.
You aren't alone.
There is still hope.
You'll hurt people of you die.
Don't give up.
Please.
Love might be real.
