Her Final Breath

In this grave lays the girl who had tried
Too hard and her plea for help was never
Heard over the sound of the world that
Kept moving. People claim to have cried,
But they never knew she was so clever,
Free spirited and kind. She never sat
 
On the sidelines like everyone else. She
Was quiet, but no one knew she was lost
On the inside. She wandered from love to
Happiness to anger and sadness. The sea
Carried away all her sorrows, but the cost
Of love and life was too much as she grew
 
Tired of the shadows that always followed
Her. Her heart was becoming weary and
Her soul was becoming lonely. She just  
Wanted to disappear and she swallowed  
The pill in the hopes people understand  
Her in her final moments. People adjust
 
To a life without her laughter and warmth.
Her smiles are missed in a world filled with
Fake smiles and artificialness. Her death
Left a hole. Their lives have transformed  
And shifted because of her as her myth
Is over. In death she gives her last breath
 
Hoping others would never follow in her
Footsteps of feeling alone. In a world so
Chaotic and messy she has finally found
Peace. She let the tears go. The whisperer
In her dreams told her to let everything go
Into the wilderness as she is left unbound.
