WRITING THE LETTER
This is the letter I had never wanted to write,
and here are the words I try to ignore each night.
These are the words that has been screaming inside of me,
and tonight I decided to finally set them free.
I’ll begin the letter by saying “I’m sorry” for I committed a sin,
just know I never planned for it to happen.
I wanted to stay I really do but life got pretty unbearable,
so I made a decision out of the blue.
I’m saying sorry because until my last breath I became a disappointment,
but I guess I’ll never feel that again for it has finally ended.
FINDING THE LETTER
I began to have a lump in my throat
the moment I read what you wrote,
the one you left behind
on the day you said goodbye.
The tears came streaming down my face,
I remembered how you were back in the days.
And how I didn’t even saw the signs,
that you were on the edge and feeling dead inside.
The memory of you and your written words are all I have now.
One day I will see you again up in the clouds.
And when that day arrives and I see you on sight,
I promise this time around I’ll make it right.
This is inspired by 13 Reasons Why. I read the book a couple of years ago and I was really glad that they made it into a Netflix series and honestly I loved how it turned out, I even liked it more than the book. We need more of this in the TV and film industry because this thing really happens and it’s a topic that we don’t normally discuss which we should. Suicide, rape, bullying and mental illness are real but we shy away on the topic because it’s a sensitive one, it’s weird and uncomfortable topic to talk about which I think should change— we need to talk about it and I think 13 Reasons Why has helped spread and opened up more discussions about these issues and that it’s okay to talk about these kinds of stuff. The show depicted these issues truthfully they didn’t censored anything about it which I think was very effective and that is why right now it’s a show that got everyone curious about. I’m glad that many people are liking this show I just hope that they take the show’s message seriously and not just join the bandwagon. If you haven’t watched it you probably should it’s really good and it actually doesn’t matter if you read the book or not because the book is a little monotonous and they broaden the story in the Netflix series which made it more interesting.
Now I can’t wait for my favorite book All The Bright Places movie adaptation which also covers the same topic. 😊💕
