STOP Teen Suicide Poem

the first part before the girl dies the girl is talking then when she dies (I see you laying there on the floor) the girl in the mirror is speaking, it's sort of like two different worlds but it's the same girl.

Sweetheart, you should tell someone immediately!! They will probably go to juvie or jail, this is a second offense. Tell your mother, she will believe you. If she doesn't, keep telling....

You Should Have Told Them

©

Published: July 2011

me.
you.
us.
who are we?

I LOOK INTO THE MIRROR...
you stare back at me....
sometimes I wish I were just a picture....
then I wouldn't have caused so much trouble.

that is why you see me here today...
to get rid of the burden...
never to cause pain and sorrow again...

you see me doing it...
you see every cut into flesh,
every pill swallowed,
you see it all.

you should have told them...
you should have told them why...
you should have told them good bye...
but now it's too late.

I see you there laying on the floor,
dead...
you will never be able to look at me again...
you will never shed another tear with me.

I see them rush in to get you,
your mom tries CPR, but fails.
you should have told her...
but now you are just a faint memory...

they take you away covered in a blue sheet...
I'm watching from the corner of the mirror,
because you left me here,
I left you here.

you should have told them
you should have told them
you should have told them
you should have told them

I repeat these words in my head over and over again,
never able to tell them I loved them one last time...
I didn't leave a note,
I just left my body...

dear mommy and daddy,
I still love you,
I should have told you,
now I will watch you from the mirror in here,
you will never see me,
will only see you.
I should have told you,
I'm sorry

First I was adopted when I was 4 years old by then I had been abused by my mother. Then by the age 12 I was getting abused by my now brothers. I never told because I'm a stupid whore. One day my mom saw it then called the police. I went to court. then moved into a different house which was far away from school then when we finally got back together they started doing it again but this time they threatened me so I haven't said a thing.

Sweetheart, you should tell someone immediately!! They will probably go to juvie or jail, this is a second offense. Tell your mother, she will believe you. If she doesn't, keep telling. Teachers, friends, police officers, whoever will help. Kayla. I know this might be too late, but I hope you still receive this. Tell your Mom right away, as soon as you can.

Tell her, please!!
