    TW mentions of s*icide.

    Here’s my letter to the universe

    to simply ask one thing.

    What did a child do

    to deserve all that torturing?

    Being yelled at even though I

    said it was an accident.

    Being abandoned over and over again.

    Being driven to tears but of course

    ”It was just a joke”.

    So I just laughed

    because what else was I supposed to do?

    That’s just what friends do.

    Right?

    Here’s my letter to the universe

    to simply ask one thing.

    What did a teenager do to deserve

    all that manipulation?

    At least I had a friend this time

    but without them I would be

    long dead and buried.

    I still see her face in my nightmares

    and I still can’t look at a razor blade.

    Everytime I hear their name I freeze

    and want to hide.

    The scars I have aren’t visible

    but they they’re everywhere inside.

    Here’s my letter to the universe

    to simply ask one thing.

    What did I do to deserve

    all of this suffering?

    I’m only 16

    but I feel like I should be dead.

    I’m barely surviving

    and nobody can even see.

    I’m so tired of all the pain you’ve put me through.

    What did this innocent boy ever do to you?

    This is a great poem and it left me speechless. Remember that you can always talk with someone you trust.
