Dream Come True - Poem by Brandi Vail
“I am writing this letter with heartache and tears. I can no longer stand the pain I’ve carried for all these years. There’s just too much to handle in this world of worries and fears. Don’t cry for me, I’m not worth your tears.”
She signed her name, as her tears fell.
She folded it, placed it on her pillow, and for a moment listened to her drunken parents yell.
She flinched when she heard the sound of broken glass.
But smiled when she realized it would all be over at last.
She reached into her dresser drawer, and pulled out her father’s gun.
She cocked it, took a deep breathe. Three, two, one.
She pulled the trigger and fell to the ground.
Her parents stopped arguing and stumbled to the sound.
They found her body, but without her inside.
Together they held her, as they cried.
They buried her body in the backyard the next day.
Then moved and changed their names to McFray.
Not another word was spoken about that girl.
Her death made no difference to anyone in the world.
She sat up straight.
It was all just a dream.
She didn’t know what to do.
That night, she made her dream come true.
