The Boy Who could Write

Have you ever heard the story about the boy who could write
He would be thinking up rhymes every day and all night
But words would do more to him, not just sting but tear and bite
And his depression was so low he would go out without a fight
He never told anyone that what they did to him wasn't right
When he was asked about his bruises his face would go white
He refused to show his sadness his brain seemed airtight 
He always wanted to say his poems to a crowd but he didn't deserve the light
At least that's what he always thought, that was his opinion of insight
He used to dream of being a noble knight
Now when he thinks of his dreams he silently burns them, no maybe or might
Soon he will tell everyone goodnight
And never wake up again just to deal with constant fright.
