Cassidy Hartwig (12-06-1999 / Lakeland, Florida)
I sink into black water as I pay for my crimes. The darkness is endless I sink further & further into black water.
Memories flash one by one as I remember my life. Why did it have to end this way?
I screamed & tears blurred my eyes as I wonder why oh why?
My heart is lost as the shadows dig further. Life is sweet oh so sweet.
Shadows then dug further into my soul. I pondered my fate.
Then a light burst forth destroying my shadows. A man of great light had destroyed my shadows.
The shadows though still live on in the dark abyss that is a person’s dark soul. They never fade & never meet their end. Beware for they live in all of our souls.
