STOP Teen Suicide Poem

So I have been fighting suicide for the past 2-3 years. I am depressed and hide it from everyone I love. It has gotten much worse lately. Poems help me express so here ya go...

I know how you feel I was like that, but it gets better in time, I promise. Just keep smiling. That will help you feel happy, I promise.

Walking Alone Fighting Suicide

Published: May 2011

In the deep deep shadows
Of a dark dark night
A girl walks the face of the Earth alone
As if pulled by a string

She doesn't know where she's going
She doesn't know where she's been
All she knows is what waits ahead
Because of whom she is

People stare
And people mock
But the young one never stops
She know something they don't know
And something they never will
And so she tarries on

She goes as far as humanly possible
And then she walks some more
For she remembers the tale
She was told long ago down by the shore
Her mother had said

"My child listen closely
I will tell you of a land
Where you can find peace
Where no one cries

And no one lies
No one mocks or shouts
A place where one can only go
If one has no real home
A place where you can be free
A place where you can roam
Somewhere you can be yourself
With no one to judge you for it

So my child
When I am called home
Walk as far as long as you can
And discover this place once more"

But her mother left
And she desperately needs
An escape from the life
She left behind
The pain not even the drugs could hide

And so the young one walks
And disappears forever more
For she has gone on to the place
She was told of by the shore
