You were born to die
I think to myself as I hear you cry
Crying out for a helping hand
But all the help in the world is banned
Banned from me and banned from you
And now you wonder what to do
But it’s too late; your time is up,
The cemetery door is now shut
You are trapped in with no where to go
Poor you, never had the chance to grow…

The author's comments:
I wrote this poem thinking about someone who was born into a life of misery, and everytime they tried to get help, people would just turn them away. So that person I knew commits suicide... they never really had a chance to experience what life could be like
