A Poem by Lettie

I wrote this three years ago in 6th grade and just found it today, so decided to share it with you!!

the sad
steep steps
trying to find
myself; trying not
to burst into tears and
cry. Maybe death will reach
me early, who would ever know?
Would people cry, once I was gone,
would people even care? If I live, what
would tomorrow bring, and will I ever be
ready for it? Running away  is always  much
easier, but I know it is not the best choice I can
make. There is always a light in the darkness if you
take the time to look, but I hear the clock ticking as I
almost reach the bottom step. A flash of memories before
my eyes show me the choice I am making is the wrong one, and
I can see the light. Though I know what is next will be harder than the
plan before, one by one I will find myself and walk back up the steps of life.

Author's Note

^^ They are suppose to be steps, though I know they are rather deform.

I wrote this three years ago in six grade, and I got an "A" with a note: "very sensitive." I know it isn't that good but I was eleven when i wrote it and I can remember not even going to write about suicide; the words just kinda came to me in the process. So tell me what you think!!!

"Nobody important". Blimey, that's amazing. D'you know, in 900 years of time and space I've never met anyone who wasn't important before.;; I'm a girl to start out with, fifteen years young, but do.. more..
