Stars shine and glitter

Everyone sees their beauty

 

you try and shine

but your flaws and insecurities are pointed out

 

you're judged and criticized

No one can see your potential

 

You hide

You hide in the darkness of your room

 

You spend your nights crying

Your pillow is soaked by the time you fall asleep

 

You come out of your shell and try

You're put down and teased

 

You start thinking 

Underestimating your worth

 

You decide to end it all

Luckily for you, it worked

 

Your sister finds you

She falls apart

 

Her guidance is gone

She goes down a road of cocaine and whiskey

 

Your mom is heart broken

Her baby is gone

 

She doesnt sleep at all

Her nights are filled with crying and funeral plans

 

Your dad doesnt know how to cope

He starts having affairs

 

He sleeps around with a Co-worker

He eventually is caught by your mother

 

The girl who would try and talk to you 

Is lonely and wishes she could have gotten to you

 

She organizes a walk for you

The whole town shows up

 

The person you like

Was head over heels for you and you never knew

 

They cry everynight 

They wish they had the courage to tell you and possibly save you

 

The school sets up counselors 

They put up poster trying to help

 

You'll never see it though

Because you my friend, are dead

@Dallask7 Wow, why did I not just seen this so soon? One of my classmates had committed suicide this Thursday and you just described the scene of what's going at school like that. Awesome job!
