    Little brother, why are u doing this to your being?
    Baby boo, why kill yourself this way?
    Never one to discuss what's eating you inside,
    You take it all upon yourself.
    Your little fragile heart has been stained
    Your beautiful soul has been darkened
    Noone cares to ask why?
    For fear that it might be their fault.

    Oh little beacon of light
    Little petal of mine,
    So young yet so old
    Happiness, i thought, was all around you
    You never had to go looking for it
    Boy was I wrong...

    Your soul cried out
    Noone came to your rescue
    Now, mama, and dear sister weep
    We weep for our own foolishness
    We weep for the last born son
    We weep, for our dear darling little one. :crying:

    So touching and sad. What got to me most were the lines: "Noone cares to ask why?
    For fear that it might be their fault." Mistakes can be made, but denying them doesn't help. Emotive write.

    thank you all. this poem as u might have noticed is about my little brother who is 13. he was suspended from school for having weed and we didnt even have the faintest clue. i am far from home and i feel helpless. i pray and pray and i know that the good Lord wont leave us now... He has never left us. One luv.
