17 Years Old, And Already Dead - Poem by Ashley Kolakowski
No one believes it.
Her parents are crushed.
Her sister's say its a lie.
Her niece calls for her to wake up.
Her boyfriend is in shock, dying.
Her friends sit and hold hands, crying.
One little person betrayed her.
Made her lose it all.
A junior in high school.
Had her whole life ahead of her
Couldn't take the lies.
Best way to get away from it was, ending her life.
Her love found her hanging.
He was too late.
They all were.
No one knew she wanted to die.
Now they all sit and cry.
