Growing up with so much pain

Wondering who’s to blame

Spending countless hours in therapy

But that only lasted momentarily

Feeling deep with so much regret

I realize I was such a threat

Taking her own life could have been prevented

If only I had not assisted

Looking back I’m so ashamed

Knowing I am to blame

My name is Kaylee Barnett and I am a sophomore at Elizabethton High School. I play soccer for our girl's soccer team and I sometimes manage the boys team. I love to write and I would like to become a Literature English professor after college.
