Too Many Cared - Poem by Kate Fuelleman

Nobody saw it
The day that she died
She slit herself
After suffering depression
That nobody noticed
She kept to herself
She never told anyone
How it all began
She felt alone
She was sick of her life
She had no boyfriend
She barely had friends
And her grades were mostly F's
She wrote dark poetry in her journal
That she never showed anyone
About her thoughts of suicide
And how she saw no reason to live
Then it all just got to her
For the last time
So one dark day
When nobody was home
She grabbed that fateful blade
Cut herself
And dropped into the bathtub
When her parents got home
They saw a trail of blood in the bathroom
Leading to the death
Of their daughter
They had no idea why or how
The next day in school
Everyone found out
They were all disturbed
Everyone was crying
She had no idea
How many people really cared
They all went to the wake
And when each person walked by
They all thought the same thought
'Why did she do this? ? ?
Too many people care'
