To my friends: Im sorry about all that has happened, I dont believe its my fault. But I would take the blame for any of you.
Regards-John



They all kept falling.
Not your normal attempt at suicide.
I dont know whether to play Killer or Victim.
Im just as confused as they are.
Falling.
Its not death that scares them,
Its the fact that Im the one that pushed them.
I pushed my friends into the darkness beneath the cove of that cliff.
What is down there is unknown to me.
For I am safe.
Up here.
At the top.

We wouldnt have been saved anyway.
Guilt was just a doorstep away from all of us,
It couldnt have been much longer until he came over to great his new neighbors.
I suppose it is my fault.
I introduced my customs to someone else.
He was too young, we should have know.
Immaturity not only got the best of me,
But it was the truth that didnt let me be.

After all was said and done,
I told the Superiors what had been going on.
For that brief moment I was relieved for what I had said.
Dissapointment was the last of my concerns,
I thought what I said would remain confined.
Deep within the closet of the Superiors,
Mother Superior let it out.
The beast was now set free.
And it was all because of me.

It was all over from here.
I had made the bed I slept in, and It was left unjustified.
It was so painful that I left.
I walked.
Away from everything that was making me upset.
Like Gump, but without a motive.

Once mother superior picked me up,
I cryed.
Alot.
I blamed her for leaving the closet door open,
Letting all my secrets out and tarnishing the ears of others.
Destroying not only my friendships, but my self esteem.

Yet they all just kept fallling.
One by one.
As I pushed them.
Below them at the bottom of the cliff was a rat.
It scurried by unnoticed.
Undetected, Unappreciated.
I finally made the choice as I jumped.
As If I wasnt already killed, mangled by the mistakes of Mother Superior.

Once my lifeless body was at the bottom of the cliff,
It was over.
The damage was down.
Mother Superior was at the top of the cliff.
Looking down at me, my dead friends, the rat.
She watched as the rat neared my body and became stationary once it was laying on my back.

She started crying.
For all that she said.
All the grief she caused her son.
Her tears fell down and rolled off the rats back, onto me.
She took one last look at my friends.
And me, The Rat.
She knew that none of this could be fixed,
As she made The Final Push,
And Jumped of the Cliff.

This one is one of my deepest ones yet.
Probably even deeper then ~Letters to Myself~
The events that took place the past 4-5 days now have resulted in this piece.

Gump- Is a reference to Forrest Gump

No closure as of yet, has helped but I do believe most of my friends hate me now over something so stupid,
I am the rat. Yet it was so unintentional dry.gif
