A Life Now Done
Author: The Lost Girl


These are most likely the last words I'll write,
because this life I've been living is a terrible fight,
Ive always pretended to be happy for them,
but the wrath of my death is what I want them to feel.
When I reached out for help, and I screamed for a glance,
they thought me as worthless, "You don't stand a chance."
I guess they were right as I sit alone crying,
waiting for the moment that I lay alone dying.
I tried to stay pleasant, I tried to stay strong,
I tried to remain smiling, I tried to hold on,
but this horribly fake facade I've been sharing,
is only hiding the horrible pain my soul's baring.
Inside I'm sorry to claim that I'm already dead,
and the agony I'm feeling just fills me with dread.

I'm sorry my mother, I'm sorry you weren't there,
when I cried in the night, I bet you really cared.
I'm sorry my father, I'm sorry you always yelled,
when what I did was an accident, when I accidently failed,
I'm sorry my best friend, I'm sorry you left me alone,
when I wept on your shoulder, when the pain-it was shown,
I'm sorry dear Lord, I'm sorry I'll leave with a grin,
dear Father forgive me, I'm not sure if this is a sin.

Now staring at my options: pills, knives, or a gun,
I'm sorry dear world, but my life is now done.

Beautifully written.

This poem is beautifully written Lost Girl, but I'm hoping that this was only written for the sake of being another one of yours poems and nothing else.
