STOP Teen Suicide Poems

Poems by Teens about Suicide

The most heartbreaking sadness of all. How depressed and alone must a person feel to contemplate taking this drastic step. When a person feels that he has lost all control of his life, he may contemplate suicide. It is often a cry for help, the only way to make the world take them seriously. Sadly enough, attempted suicides are often seen as the only effective method to help a person get the help they need. For this reason people who feel that they have exhausted all other options may make a suicide attempt.

Who Would've Known

A single teardrop streams down her pale face,
a single letter wrapped in lace.
As she fakes her final smile, who would know that this was the last,
glares and laughter fill the hallway, who would know the truth of her past. ...
