Her whispers in the wind,
And all her broken dreams.
So much for sin,
And all her screams.
Her cuts so deep,
Her dreams so weak,
The morning after,
Nothing seems right,
The gun to her head,
She'll finally say good-night.

Oh Lord, where can I begin. This poem has related to me so much its indescribable. I know what you are going through and trust me it aint worth going through with it. So many people in your life would miss and lose you forever. My advice is that to think of all the good things in your life and then you will realize that it aint your life aint worth to be thrown away and remember you're so brave

Amazing poem.
I'm 13. Death seemed like the only option. But I've slowly began to realize that life can offer you a lot. Sometimes good and bad. But its not how much good and bad that we're given, its how we deal with it. Life can seem like it sucks ass but at the end of the rainbow of life(-with all its hardships and how you dealt with it-), you get a pot of gold

This poem is so true. I know what you are going through. My friend shot herself last week. It was really hard to have to say good-bye to her so early. She is like your friend. She had dreams bigger then this world, but couldn't take life anymore.

I do love the poem though=] I just wish it wasn't about something this real=[

This poem is honestly scary. Its really good, but why? Why so...sudden? Death is not the escape from this cruel world. It never is. Please, think it over again, before you make your final choice.
