A baby girl is born on April 29,1998
She is asleep
Four years later, she's able to talk and walk
She is ready for her first day of school
She makes friends with ease and she has not a worry in the world
The first ten years of her life are simple
No problems with her family, or friends, or herself
Something happens when she turns eleven
She does not want to go to school anymore
She cries and cries and cries and cries
"Why am I not good enough?" she asks to herself repeatedly
"Is it because I'm ugly?'
"Is it because I'm fat?"
"Is it because I'm dumb?"
"Is it because I'm quiet?"
This little girl is full of self hate
She is dead
Something happens when she turns fourteen
“I am good enough.”
“I am beautiful.”
“I am smart.”
“I am quiet.”
She is awake
She is alive
