Poem about Teens

I wrote this after I realized that me being the only girl wrestler really tore my family apart. I always was too happy and proud to see it. Now that my eyes have truly opened, I see what I have done. So truly like the girl in this poem, I guess I admit defeat. I finally have broken, and this poem concludes it.

I know a girl like this. Everybody thought she would always stay and then one day she left. I tried to help her, but she pushed me away and left, so this poem touched me.

She's Gone

Published: February 2013

The girl who always smiled frowned
The girl who always laughed cried
The girl who was determined
Finally gave up and died

She went away
One blue and grey old day
She didn't sing
She left her rings
She didn't even
Pack her things

She slowly dragged
Her eyes in bags
Down the hallway
Out the door
To be forgotten
Again once more

She said nothing
As she walked away
She didn't even
Last the day

We watched her go
And disappear
Into thin air
Far away from fear

We never saw that girl again
We never saw her pain that she thought she'd ever feel again
It seems to me
That the girl we knew
Slowly got up
With her words that she withdrew
The girl we thought to never cry
Finally gave up
And finally died
