Poem

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

Poet Bio

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