She walked home on a normal afternoon.
Hadn't seen her sister since she ran away from school.
They'd mocked her once again.
The words never seemed to end.

That's when she saw her, and the girl's heart nearly stopped.
Her big sister hung in the stairwell on a rope drawn taught.

Life long departed, eyes glazed and empty.
The little girl stared unable to breathe.
Books fell from her dead fingers and she went to her knees.
Tears ran down her cheeks and she couldn't halt the screams.

Those words had been the last straw.
Scars had been torn open and left raw.
She decided this was the last time,
They'd have the power to destroy her life.

Thought this was the path to peace,
When her heart finally would cease.
But now the broken pieces are left for those whom she loved,
When at last she chose to give up.
Today was her last day,
As her soul fades to gray.


She stared at the casket with a soul gone numb.
This is what they'd made her sister become.
She couldn't even feel her parents embrace,
As she stared at her sibling's ashen face.

Today had been the last straw.
Scars had been torn open and left raw.
She decided this was the last time,
They'd have the power to destroy her life.

Thought this was the path to peace,
When her heart finally would cease.
But now the broken pieces are left for those whom she loved,
When at last she chose to give up.
Today was her last day,
As her soul fades to gray.


That day had pushed her over the edge,
With the things that those kids said.
Claimed it would be better if she'd never lived.
And she had no fight left to give.
Would it have made a difference if they'd known,
She was going to die once she reached home?

Today had been the last straw.
Scars had been torn open and left raw.
She decided this was the last time,
They'd have the power to destroy her life.

Thought this was the path to peace,
When her heart finally would cease.
But now the broken pieces are left for those whom she loved,
When at last she chose to give up.
Today was her last day,
As her soul fades to gray.


Please know I'm sorry,
Hate drove you to this.
Oh why were you left in agony?
Each word created your desire for the dark abyss.
Believed the lies until you drowned in their sea.
Easing the sorrow became your only wish.

Pain can sometimes seem too great.
Regret is the companion of those who live still.
Inside your heart the grief ate away.
Never realized you were drowning in fear until,
Clouds drew over your last day.
Ebony dwells in the space that you used to fill.
This is written for a girl whose pain wasn't found until too late. Read the first letter of each sentence in the last two paragraphs and you'll know who it's about.

this is beautiful.
It makes me think of why, when things get overbearing and I think I can't go on, I don't seriously consider taking my life. I wouldn't want my little angel sister to have to deal with that.

Wow....that really amazes me. Thank you so much! And she was a 15 year old girl who committed suicide because of severe bullying. Here's some information about her: [link]
