Fall!

Did the girl fall or was she pushed the question

from the motorway bridge

as fast-moving traffic was brought to a halt

nearly creating a crash

she was hit by several speeding motor cars

above millions of blinking stars!

 

Police closed three lanes they needed answers

attending such scenes too often

so young it was a waste of another teenage life

witnesses said they’d seen a group

on the bridge before darkness had closed in

now the investigation must begin!

 

Ambulance crews respectfully removed the girl

when forensics had finished its tasks

each felt deeply these incidents were cruel

an unavoidable part of their duties

a microscopic search was then undertaken

to be sure evidence was not mistaken!

 

Miles of traffic tailed back into the distance

diversions were put into place

as the daunting task to clear the scene went on

people could only observe

hours passed before the main road was cleared

those at the rear loudly cheered!

 

Investigations eventually concluded it was suicide

the girl was only seventeen

in our society it has become a too common situation

as the young find pressures hard

too often scared or ashamed to seek the help required

another young life expired!

 

Sad so many teenagers their spark extinguished forever!

  1. Reblogged this on The Foureyed Poet and commented:

    The pressures are too high upon the young in society today! The Foureyed Poet.

  2. Very sad and heart breaking to know people get so low.. Sometimes I think the antidote to rid these horrid monster feelings provoked from mind and becoming physical is to truly, truly become ‘present’.. There is no horror, no haunts, no tortuous torment when dwelling fully immersed in the ‘present’. The ‘present’ is reality. Sometimes people drag horrors from past or invent future events in mind which effects ‘present’. Yes society does infringe tremendous expectations and pressures on people.. This is so sad.
