STOP Teen Suicide Poem

Thinking about Suicide Poem

I am a 14 year old African-American female. I have already given birth to a baby boy named Marquez when I was 13. I gave him up for adoption but I am still very active in his life. I have also struggled with depression for most of my short life. I have already attempted suicide with drugs, prescriptions, knives and much more. poetry is my only outlet from this horrid hell called life.

You're Not The One

Published: February 2011

You're not the one who feels like an outcast.
You're not the one who isn't sure if to the next grade she will pass.
You're not the one who has a son that was put up for adoption.
You're not the one who witnessed a live abortion.
You're not the one who doesn't know if tomorrow they will take their life.
You're not the one who repeatedly cut their wrists with a knife.
You're not the one who is afraid to love.
You're not the one who needs an encouraging shove.
You're not the one who has trouble fitting in.
You're not the one who first had sex at age 10.
You're not the one who worries about what people say.
You're not the one who thinks about suicide everyday.
