This was dedicated to someone I knew very little about, but I had to dedicate a poem to someone, I figured, "Why not her?" and it didn't turn out too bad.

With All This Life Can Come Great Pain
Hearts will be broken
Tears will be shed
No one says this when you're born
But you'll know it 'fore you're dead

People say "keep your chin up"
You don't want to listen, though
Sometimes you'll want to punch that Annie
For singin' "The Sun'll Come Out Tomorrow"

And it's OK to be angry
And it's okay to be sad
But to stay in that state permanently
Don't you see how that's bad?

Think of the people around you
Who love you (whether they say so or not)
Don't let yourself be wasted
Your time on Earth forgot

Think of love
And live life in peace
Those who love you, love them back
Or, due to depression, you may be deceased
