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.

    The Strength To Make It Through
