The sky had been perfectly clear,
Not a cloud was in site
Zachariah was sitting under the old tree by his house.
Book in hand
He had been coping with his depression his whole life.
No one knew why.
It was like this moment
He was happy reading his book
Something good was going to happen
....and it didn't
The sky darkened quickly.
Thunder shook his earth
Lightning struck him in the heart.
Because in his life
Someone threw the past in his face
And calling him names.
Making him vulnerable to the slightest words.
Crumbling like paper.
He screams in his head.
Because he is silenced.
They don't know what they did.
He Wished the past away.
But it stayed in his head
Wishing he had amnesia.
Scars ripped open once again.
He shut down his feelings
And became apathetic to the good
So that he would not be affected
And one day,
He built his wall up so high,
That no one could see him,
And the past became so unbearable.
The he killed his mind
Then tried himself. Thankfully they had gotten to him in time.
He ended up getting treatment, and learned some skills to help him.
As he talked, they learned what was being said really had an impact.
They then learned, that the slightest word could've killed him.
And helped him get out of his situation and into a better home.
So be kind to others.
so that we can avoid this.
