Dream like you will live forever,
Live like you will die tomorrow.



Once there was a girl who was loved,


 but she didn't know it.


Ever since she was young, the girl, 


Eva was her name, had been hit.


Never knowing 


how to make it stop,


She decided to stop depending 


on the clock,


Eva thought death


 would escape her abusive mother, 


And shortly after


 came the death of her brother.




Eva's brother 


By this individual, 


Eva was loved the most.


He couldn't stand her absence


So he turned himself to toast.




Eva's  mother


This person changed Eva's life,


But for the worst.


This physical abuse  


Must be a curse.


Eva's  father


A person who was never around to see Eva.


He took off when Eva was one, her brother four,


He never heard her cry when her mother beat her.


He left them all alone with unthinkable torture.




Eva's friends


There were only a few


She could call her friend,


But they made fun of her


And certainly didn't help in the end.




Eva's tool


A .12 gauge in the drawer 


of a barely used desk.


She takes it out,


The trigger does the rest.






Besides her brother,


Nobody in her family cared.


But her friends were stunned,


They didn't realize her despair.




Eva's story ends here.

I was inspired by articles in the paper about siblings committing suicide
