He cried his heart out
and ripped his skin apart
barely alive, curled up in a box
the walls were closing in on him

He screamed for help
but his voice was muffled by shame
so he slit his throat
and was buried by blame[/tab]

Gill is a 16 year old girl living in Sasekani, a small village just outside of Tzaneen[/tab]
