People Who Die In My Life

by Matt (age 13)

People die in my life.
I can't stop it.
It just happens.
It hurts a lot, and I cry cry cry.
But even after they die,
I try to remember the fun, happiness,
and the good times, and talk about it,
so I don't end up in locked-down facilities
and run away and hurt myself
and try to kill myself and
be dead like them.
