This is the story

Of a girl

Who had everything

But felt nothing

She wasn't beaten

She wasn't bullied

Her home life was fine

She used to be happy

But one day

A big cloud of sad

Blew over her

Raining down tears

And hate

And on that day she quit

She quit love

She quit on her family

And on herself

She thought she was making herself better

But instead she made it worse

“I’m fine mom”

But she wasn't

Her wrists said so

She excluded herself from everyone

Black hoodies

Concealing her beautiful curls

She had friends

We loved her

We watched as the cloud devoured her whole

Our happy little friend

Turned into a sad stranger

Stupid cloud.
