    He opens his eyes in the morning
    Wishing he stayed asleep.
    He doesn't change his clothes
    He looks like a mess but
    Nobody will notice anyway.

    He walks on the bus
    Hearing whispers coming from the back
    He chooses his seat in the front
    Sitting all by himself

    The day carries on
    With every class being the same
    He does his work quietly
    Talks to no one
    They wouldn't understand him or his pain

    He sits alone at lunch
    Just like he has every day in the past
    Peanut butter and jelly his favorite
    He savors every bite
    This meal being his last

    The day finally ends and he goes home
    Wondering if anyone will notice
    He will be missing from school tomorrow
    The days to come and the weeks to follow.

    He writes a note to his mom
    Pouring out his love along with the tears
    He signs his name in blood.
    This is a pain that has haunted him for years

    He did it quick, a single shot is all it took that day
    To take away the life and the pain of a boy
    The presence of pain was what was left
    Now is the absence of complete misery and joy

    It could have ended differently
    If someone would have cared
    A wave, a little hello or a smile in the hallway
    Even someone sitting by him on the way home
    These are things they could have shared

    The whole school comes to his funeral
    As if they really cared.
    They cry as if they knew him
    When half the time, they didn't even notice he was there
    The following day, they'll go on with life, forget about the day
    The day one boy took his life, to take away his pain.

    :sad: This is so true for many young people (and adults too)
    **tears** reminds me of Robbie. He tried so hard to reach out for help. He even flat out asked for help and was ignored by those who should have cared. **tears** Only one person on the planet would listen and did try to help him. Unfortunately that one person was quite young, had a passion for life, and no clue what suicide meant or that ppl really did kill themselves.

    This person has been on my mind a lot lately. I plant sunflowers for them each spring so they bloom at the time of his death. too detailed to go into why. For some reason each time an anniversary date of one of my friends or relatives suicide comes along, i tend to think of all of them.

    **hug**

    hope you keep writing
