1983 by Gary R. Hess

This poem is roughly based on reality with some fictional parts tossed in. I didn't want to completely give away who the story is about, and no it isn't me.

Anyway, if you are wondering, I once had a friend who committed suicide after he saw no hope for his own life.

In 1983
On the day of changes, a child was born
This child did not see the world in a same spectrum as you or me
Fourteen years had passed before his views and notions would be negated
His eyes and heart torn from his soul in his time of need
His only hope to go on was his little sister
Who had died seven years before
His eyes swelled shut from the world around him
His life then taken from a bloody blade
His mind at peace with his thoughts
His hope had died with the angels
