story of a bullied teen

Anne came home again with deadly tears in her desperate eyes. Her soft cheeks burned red from thunderous crying and undeserved embarrassment. She melted down into the soft green chair in front of her mirror. Glaring into it, she picks out every flaw in her perfect face.

"Why am I so ugly? Why am I so fat?", were her silent pleas. She can see only one way out. Quietly, she rises from her chair. Then, like a lamb to slaughter, she slowly walks down the narrow hallway into the bathroom. Once inside, she robs the cabinet of seven brightly colored pills. Starting again to cry, she whispers a bitter melody.

"Little pills of many shades, do this deed and let me fade." As her tune ends, she drops each pill, one by one, into a small Dixie cup.She then adds water, and consumes the poison. As she falls to the floor, her desperate eyes reveal peace.
