The girl appeared indifferent,

The girl appeared fine,

The girl appeared happy,

And often sublime. Was she so happy?

Ever truly fine?

Why did nobody notice, Until the end of her time?

She was found hanging,

At half past nine;

To the shock of her parents,

Smiling in vain.

The note was found,

The text allowed,

A sense of depression Of extensive time.

The bullies were haunting,

The self esteem cruel,

The death left mourning,

And more painful ghouls...

The note described sorrow

And appologies too,

A thankfullness to music, And religions anew.
