Berry Depressed - Poem by Moriah Toran

Thanks to the 1 person I thought would help me,

I decided to end my life.

People were making fun of me all the time.

And Principal Cannon did nothing.

Every time I went home crying,

Using a knife to make the scars of hatred.

I hated evryone around me.

Abd thanks to Principal Cannon,

I was bullied for 3 years.

1 night I decided to do something about it.

I grabbed the same knife,

Abd instead of making the scars of hatred,

I made the scars of death.

I want to say thank you Principal Cannon,

For standing there watching,

And making my life miserable.

Thank you my friends,

For doing nothing to help me.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

In my poetry class, we had to write a poem based on spoon river. We had to make up a character and then describe how they die which is like the spoon river poems. My character was a person that was depressed because of her principal. She commited suicide because of that.
