to amanda todd and many others
to amanda todd and many others,
maybe this is just platitude, cliche things, or another tribute.
on and on and on, time passes by, it's 2021.
millions of people remember your name, and the flashcards,
i remember, you were an ordinary girl,
who chose the permanent solution, to fix the temporary pain.
i feel you, i do.
anger and frustration accumulate deep inside me,
i just want to scream and get intoxicated,
dear lord, may i find my peace.
teenage years are tough,
especially for you.
but you were strong, struggling with all the insults and degradation.
the wounds were so deep, and you were so alone,
stuck in a lifeless abyss, suffocating in your own room.
bullies panicked after watching the news,
with shame, regret, or just indifference.
kind people trembled after watching the news,
with consternation, shock, or just sadness.
there are indeed two kinds of people,
and there's nothing we could do.
high school is short, it'll all pass, life's still long,
how much i hope you could know.
fly high angel, that's all i have to say.
thank you for leaving that video proof,
and all the reflections and questions.
to amanda todd and many others.
