In this World that Comes and Goes

With your eyes closed its almost like you're sleeping
But you skin pales, darkness is creeping
A pill bottle lays empty beside your bed
A rueful letter lies sealed beside your head
A frozen mother stares at your bedroom door
Before falling unconscious to the floor
The kids at school, they had their fun
Now they're disgusted at what the have done
Hearts break, regret flows
In this world that comes and goes

This poem is among many others, but the message needs to be clear. Bullying is wrong, guys. For those on the opposite end, life gets better. It may get worse too, but in the long run its worth it.

Pretty dark and pretty creepy. I support the message behind this piece also. Good job!
