When I Saw Something Ugly Then I Found Beauty - Poem by kristen graham

I saw something ugly but then I had found something beautiful in it.
I saw that I was being hateful to somebody that I know

being so hateful to many people wasn’t very nice of me to do.
I thought that if i saw beauty in everyone and everything could make my life so much easier.

Once I found beauty in everything and everyone really did make my life a whole lot easier
As the day went by I couldn’t pretend that I can see beauty in everything and in everyone had died out.

I knew that I had to declare war between me and my enemies
I just had to wait for the right time and place.

As I told my enemies to meet me at central park
but they never showed.

I couldn’t have the war that I wanted.
As I was losing hope in everything that I did

I told myself that since I can’t see beauty in anything
I had to kill myself to make the world a better place for other

As I got home I tied a rope to the bar of my closet and I jump
After hanging there for a couple of minutes my mom had walked into my room and found me dead

As my mom took me down I took my last breathe in her arms.
But I found beauty in my own death.

That’s the only beauty for me......
