So Long World

As she stood in contemplation...
The thoughts of ending it were abound...
She could immediately stop the wretched suffering...
Her anguished soul never to be found...

All the agony; all the pain...
That lived each moment in her head...
Would finally leave forever more...
No more tears would she have to shed...

Why was there no one here to protect her...
Why no friends in her life to care...
She asked herself these puzzling questions...
No one with whom she could openly share...

All the torment; all the sadness...
All the deep, dark secrets she hid...
She could immediately stop the wretched suffering...
“So long world!” said yet another hopeless kid...
