Joyce Rugg

Rookie (2/21/1996- / olean new york)


This was a normal day
Just like any other
But little did I know,
Lives would change forever

Sitting before a screen,
Blank stare, cartoons play
The glow picks out a pill
Shining white on the floor

Something seems so wrong here,
I knew it didn't belong
Then it's out of my hands
And the adults take charge

My sister's taken away
From the unknown dark world
that, to me, wasn't real
How could she make this choice?

Road to recovery,
Filled with curses and tears
And I was the demon,
Worst sister in the world

She said she hated me
But her gift told the lie
The truth was obvious
In an angel necklace
