Growing up in 2008


That feeling of uselessness

Unable to fulfill the desires of them

What did they want of a child in the first place?


A child in his teen years

Leaving a note for his mother

Running away from all the pain from growing up


The child decides to take his own life into his hands

He doesn't want to feel used anymore

No more pain

Even if there is no guarantee of shelter or love

The child just wants to be happy
