Another Statistic

by

Melissa Fallecker

I don't want to be another statistic
some suicidal teen
who makes a choice to kill herself
when the world just seems to mean
she can't go on with life
or so to her it seems
reality has fallen short
and so have many dreams.

I don't want to be another statistic
some pregnant little girl
who met this great guy
and then gave sex a whirl
she was only fifteen
but it felt so right,
she thought they'd be together
for more than just a night.

I don't want to be another statistic
some kid strung out on crack
who started at a party
and now he can't turn back
First cigarettes and alcohol
Now meth, crack and coccaine
He's been smoking it so long
that now he's gone insane.

I don't want to be another statistic
some girl left in the rain
who was walking home from school
then raped and left in pain
she can't tell her parents
and it hurts to tell her friends
she doesn't know what she'll do
to make this nightmare end.

I don't want to be another statistic
some kid out of school
who dropped out early
and was acting like a fool
He thought that it was boring
he thought that it was dumb
He doesn't have an education
but he lives on the streets like a bum.

I don't want to be another statistic
some stereotypical teen
I'm gonna make a difference
I'll finish with my dream
I won't end up pregnant
on drugs or even dead
I won't drop out of school
because I'll use my head.

I don't want to be another statistic
to fit into some mold
of what society thinks of kids today
because it's getting kind of old
Not all of us are bad
in fact some of us are good
WHEN WILL THE WORLD SEE US
AND GIVE US CREDIT LIKE THEY SHOULD.


The Final Goodbye

by

Melissa Fallecker

This is where I lay down and die
Slip into darkness
And say my final goodbye
The urge is to powerful
The will is to strong
With this last stroke
My Breath will be gone
The Blood in my veins
Will no longer flow
out of this place
Into the unknown
How much does it take
For you to see
The pain is my heart
The pain that you bring
And with my last strength
I write these last words
And say that I love you
Which is much more than you deserve
This is where I lay down and die
Slip into nothingness
And say my final...
Goodbye

No daddy not again
No daddy not again
Please don't do it daddy
I don't want to hurt anymore
Im falling daddy stop it
Im falling daddy stop it
No daddy not again
Please stop hitting me daddy
I don't want to feel this pain
You're doing it again daddy
Daddy you're doing it again!
No,I'm sorry daddy I'll be good
Good daddy I promise
You're hurting me daddy
Daddy you're hurting me
Stop hitting me please daddy
Please daddy stop it
I wake up..
I can't talk..
I can't see..
"You're okay now angel",
Said my daddy
I open my eyes,I can see
I see a man standing over me
A doctor..standing over me
"You feel down the stairs it's pretty bad"
I look at him my eyes filled with plea
Daddy takes my hand and walks away with me
No doctor,can't you see?
There were no stairs
Daddy did this to me
But you can't hear me..
I can't speak..
Doctor! Doctor! Help me please
Don't let my daddy take me
I'm only three

Save Me Please

by

Melissa Fallecker

I awoke to your face,your hard rough hands
In a place where they were not aloud,I said no,but you did not understnad
That dark summer night,you took my childhood away
I wish I would have never stayed there,that dark day
I cried and I pleeded as your hands covered my mouth
I kicked and I screamed,but no one was about
Why did he do this to me?I said as I looked up at the moon
What did I do to deserve this? I have grown up too soon
He is done with me,he has accomplished his goal
He thinks he's done good,he's left me in the cold
I said no,on that hot summer night
But he did not understand,he looked past my fright
To this day,I think back and cry
To this day,I look noone in the eye
I looked thinking the moon would give me my answer
What a fool I was
Thinking the moon could tell me,why I had to grow up so soon
That night my heart and soul were taken,ripped out of my flesh
To this day,the criminal has not been put away,I was to late to tell of his theft
You may think this is my fault,that I should have told
But I was frightened,left out in the cold

I wonder through this maze
searching for the right direction
you have left me stranded here
without a bit of protection

I wonder through this maze
this maze in my mind
you are like a drug to me
you harm me but Im addicted
I think you love me,even when you abuse me
your hand strikes hard,but I try to hold on
my mind is now a maze

I must wonder through this maze
searching for the right path
but I know I shall be ok
for I have found my path
I know I'll be ok for I am free of your wrath

My Cell

by

Melissa Fallecker

This is my cage
My prison cell
This is my heaven
Yet its pure hell
This is my life
Fallen apart
Broken to pieces
Just like my heart
These are the rules,
I must follow
These are my emotions--
Pain,hurt,sorrow
This is my cell
Though noone can tell
I refuse to let my feelings show
I am filled with so much pain
And nobody will ever know..
My future rides on this one knife
At the end of the day
This pain is still my life
