Her Last Poem

She liked to lose herself in poetry Where she could wander off peacefully And write of a world that was pain free Where she wasn’t viewed differently But no one ever read her words Her recital of rhymes was never heard This was a journey others thought absurd As she wept with the sorrow of a caged bird The last poem she ever wrote Is the only one her mom can quote In the form of a suicide note Just before the pills slid down her throat

    This poem gave me chills in my spine.How sad for one who needs to be heard,yet never found someone who listens.This touched my heart and soul Joe.

    Joe, whoa.. This was emotionally powerful with a twist ending making it double so. Such a good, thoughtful write!
