Suicidal Temptation

I'm so sick of hearing
the same old lecture
why can't I grow up
and be mature
no one understands
even if they think they might
I'll just put a rope around my neck
and pull it tight
will that end all the pain and agony
that I go through every day
you say I haven't changed
but I have in my own way
I don't do it to impress
I act how I do
because for some reason it relieves the stress
you don't understand me
so please don't try
eventually ill be free
and you'll be satisfied
but until then be patient
because my rope is tied

I completely understand what you're going through. Yes, it is very hard to express yourself because you don't know how to. People still judge you, and yes, you can't just snap out of it. We need more people to give us an ear. A little patience that goes a long way. I am happy you found a way of communicating. I wish I was as good as you in your words to put the pen in action. I still feel angry. Family throws things in your face instead of giving you a comforting shoulder to lean on. Reach out and feel safe. Continue with your poems. They're inspiring many, including myself. Thank you for sharing.

My family never understands always chanting be more mature, or you are not really depressed you are just sad. I've started losing interest in stuff thinking I won't live long enough to use it. I can't look at anything without thinking of how it could kill me.

I understand how you feel, I have severe depression, and when the people you care about don't understand they can easily hurt you by accident. I also have a friend who may be starting to have some severe problems with it as well. I'll add you to my prayer that we all don't have to struggle like this someday. I mean that in a good way though.

I like this one a lot. It actually had me tearing up cause my mom says she doesn't understand why I am this way and that I need to think about it and move on. Considering the fact I have depression; I am always going to have thoughts about dying and just not being here at all. So if there is anyone who understand you, I think it would be me. I know how certain things feel and trust me I have been through a lot of pain but as time goes by I still look back on it and just think.
