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!
