Excellence (poeTry)

by amica paige

Guidance I lacked
when I was growing up
Everyone was busy
as I watch them grow up
My grades were great
They were happy to hear
But nobody knew of
my heart that melted in fear
Did anyone asked?
Was anyone concerned--
as I cried myself
to sleep in bed?

Then, I forgot
I forgot for a long time
until my heart bled
and eventually died.
