No One Notices, Speak Up
Author: The Lost Girl


Walking around, day by day,
Cuts bright as roses, on my arms -
there they lay.

They scream for attention,
for one passing glance
but no one notices,
Why would I take that chance?

Take my own life?
I'm just not that one girl,
who hates her life enough
to give death a whirl.

I'm 15 years old,
they say I should be happy.
Well, someone speak up -
then one day I might be.

------- Author's Notes -------

This is one of my first poems. I thought it would be a good idea to start putting my feelings into writings instead of... Well, I would appreciate any comments at all.
