I Never Knew You

Just a boy who died
No relation to me or those in my class
People never knew him,
But I suddenly remembered.

Getting jumped on for being who he was-- DIFFERENT
I never helped because I was always too busy
He used to scream for help,
But I ignored him

That was Yesterday.

Today I cry for not saving him
People say he killed himself after getting jumped
His parents said he was EMOtional
No help for him

So this is for you, mystery guy
I wish I would’ve helped.
I regret it.
I never knew you,
But I wish I did.
