We were ever so worried
When we found the knotted noose
And scribbled diary entries
With tales of self abuse

Teenage tears and tantrums
Can easily be explained
But what on earth would cause these
Freshly dripped blood stains

We were ever so worried
When you locked yourself in your room
Painted the walls pitch black
And ignorantly we assumed

That this was just a phase
That it would soon come to pass
And pass it indeed did do
Far too soon and far too fast

We were ever so worried
When you dyed black your hair
No longer did we recognise
The child that was once here

Our precious little angel
Where did your shaken bones go
And why did you leave us here
With no reason and no note

We were ever so worried
To find an empty bed
No more teenage tantrums
Just endless silence instead

If we could bring you home
Take care and start a new
We'd sit our precious girl down
And ask 'whatever is to do?''
just to avoid any confusion ''whatever is to do?'' means ''what is wrong?' in my part of the world lol xD

I am a parent of 5 and I listen , however I feel I can never listen enough.... In listening we must truly hear. That would be with an open accepting mind. I to had very deep pain as a teen . Held it in. Survived, but I've been to hell and back. I hope their are more parents out there reading your amazing literature . You are truly gifted.

its sad to hear and i wish that more people had parents who would listen to their children more before its too late. I hope people can also see on sites like this that there is always someone to talk to if times get bad :)

:( sorry to hear you feel like that

I am in no position to give advice but i try and tell everyone in this situation to talk to someone. If they dont listen then talk to someone else. Keep talking until they listen and take you serious.
