A Way Out

Updated on June 11, 2013

A Poem

You won't ever see her smile

She's looking for a way out

Coming home to a family

All she hears is screams and shouts

In a dark room she sits and thinks

Why is life so hard, hard as a brick

The pain is too much

The drugs no longer do the trick

No one notices her struggle

Everyday is the same

Parents are divorced

She takes the blame

At school she's a bully

Once bullied long ago

Taking it out on others

The only way she knows

One day she comes home

Once again all alone

In her dark room

She contemplates her life

In one hand she holds a knife

She thinks to herself "This life is too much"

She found a way out

Her wrists are cut

      I like the flow of this and how it tells a story of what it seems like to be of a young girl and her family circimstances leading her to her own end. Makes me think of a movie.
