This is the story of a young boy. When the boy was born, he was given the gift of kindness, caring, love. His soul and heart were filled from top to bottom with nothing but good, and as he grew he learned what he was made to do. He knew that he was placed on Earth to help the people around him who needed it, friends and strangers alike. So he strove to do good, to help those around him, making some good friends along the way. People would come to him for help, and he would give it to his greatest ability.

As the boy continued to grow, he began to see the world around him more clearly. The boy realized that not all is good. He realized how terrible the many things of the world were, and though it frightened him, he kept going, he kept helping and doing good for the world. But slowly, little by little, as he gave his heart and soul to fix others, it started to affect the boy. He began to worry that it would not be enough, that it would never be enough, and all that he had discovered began to take a toll on him.

Now we come to the present day. The boy sits in a chair all day, whether it be at school or at home. Sitting, trying to distract himself from the horrors he must face. He began to fall behind in class, grades started to slip, just as his friends seemed to. And then he realized, that he himself was broken. After all he had done for everybody else, he looked around and saw people smiling, people happy, including those that he had helped. But as he sat in the darkness, hoping somebody would notice, nobody did. There was only one thing on his mind, one thing that ate away at him, one thing that he dreaded more than anything else. After all the love he had given to the world, he had run out, but nobody had ever given any back. And he was left alone, his mind, sanity, and joy, all slowly slipping ever closer towards the darkness.

This is really good. It's very well written and expresses a huge detriment to the lives of many very well: loneliness. The idea that no one cares about us can literally ruin people's lives. I love the way this is written; especially how it doesn't go into much detail, but keeps the boy anonymous, fitting to the idea of loneliness.

Well done. :)
