Ruby's final poem


Hi, my name is Emma and I'm a friend of Ruby's. On Friday 6th May, the world lost her and we are all heartbroken. Ruby has been reunited with her dad and is now at peace. This is Ruby's final poem that she wrote two days before she passed but never had the chance to share. I thought it was the right thing to do by sharing it here as Ruby loved this community. 

"I feel like I'm just walking, down this long narrow road. Searching for someone to help me, lift this heavy load. I don't have a direction, no path for me to choose. Not much for me to pick from, not much for me to lose. I guess I'm just a statistic, my life has got no meaning.  Black clouds have started arriving, I can feel the devil scheming. I won't give up that easy, won't go down without a fight. For I know whatever happens, everything will be alright. I'm thankful for those people, the ones who truly care. Who've supported all my struggles, when my minds been in despair. They know exactly who they are, my angels here on earth. They've pushed me through the hardest times and shown me I have worth. So this roadway be a long one, with each step my hope has grown. As now people walk beside me, I know I'm not alone." 

RIP Ruby

    I'm literally speechless right now. I remember scrolling through poems on this site a few months ago and always seeing her name pop up. I'll be honest, I never had the chance to read any of her poems or ever talk to her. But seeing this right now has truly made me realize just how delicate life is. I know other poets on this site who did have a close connection with her and they'd publish poems dedicated to her unknown absence, all I can say is my heart goes out to all her family and loved ones. She was so young and so ready to flourish, however it be she passed away I have faith that she's okay now, as you mention, with her father. My condolences go out to you Emma, and know that life is always filled with light, even if it seems like you're surrounded by darkness. This final poem of hers truly goes to show the dazzling talent she had, may she rest in peace.
