Skinny Girl Saves

I learned that Skinny Girl was right
She helped me take my first bite
I asked around to find skinny girl's name
I wanted to do the same
Turns out her name was Jane
She died not to long after my stay
She just had finished school
She must not have been considered cool
For all of her memorial messages only said
It was sad she was dead
Her mom wished she could have had one last kiss
No one said she was going to be missed
But I thank Jane for giving me the help I need
I just wish the warning she gave me she had heed
But alas it's to late
Jane suffered from an awful fate
But now she's living in a better place
That will do better than that tiny space
Thanks to Jane I'm doing better
I no longer always need to wear a sweater
As I stand at her grave I start to cry
I feel so bad that she died
In her note she sounded so strong
I realize now I was wrong
Instead she was brave
I realize this now as I stand at her grave
She didn't care about death
Or her final breath
She only wanted to help and make sure someone sees
Someone like her and me
I wipe my tears and try to be brave
When I set the roses at her grave
But before I turn away
I whisper to her thanks and I'm okay
