when you looked in the mirror that last day,
what did you see?
did you see only the little broken girl
that you used to be?
did you think she’d remain wounded forever
unable to get out of her head?
did you ever hope that one day she’d live the rest of her life
instead of ending up dead?
did you ever consider, just once, that things
could have turned out alright,
maybe you’d had found someone to love like you once did
or maybe it was yourself all this time?
i wish you’d have waited to find out all the answers
instead of me asking them tonight
i wish you’d have given this life one more chance…
i wish you’d have put up a fight.

One thought on “what did you see?”
Sometimes we do not know
and we do not understand
what others are going through
if we don’t look & get closer
maybe won’t ever start to can
It is very painful and a shame
to lose someone by suicide
a big reason to let them know
in life, to them, we are allied.
