My heart runs heavy, my mind stays cold
Gone to soon I say, you weren't even old.
I saw the pain in your face, you were ready to leave
you felt useless in life, so you did not try to succeed.
You were uneducated and came from a less than perfect background
to live through rapes, abuse, and prostitution,
it left you feeling like no one was around.
Sexual abuse done to you had become substance abuse done by you
It caused you to lose the ones you loved, forever
You did not have to take your life on that uneventful day
if we were placed up for adoption, it would have been okay
we would have reached out for you,
if only you would have accepted us.
I spent many years with this hate in my heart
It time to forgive, I don't know where to start.
At times I wish that I knew your final thoughts
in order to rewrite the things that you were taught.
to all of those who are ready to leave so soon,
don't act on a temporary emotion
because you feel like you were doomed
There are people who love you and really do care
I wish you would have realized that people were always there.
