ann
i understand where you're coming from. i felt the same way, although i could never express it quite like you have done.
Eve
I have never seen anything that described the way i felt like this poem before! It was beautifully written. I just wanna say that i have finally gotten out of my depression after 3 long years with the help of Jesus. Without Him, I would still be stuck in hell.
Norma
these words describe me exactly, i feel i need to die, but dont want to hurt others in the process.
Kat
It as if you took my thoughts and put them into words that I could have never expressed.
Natal
What you pray for, you might receive. Death is better than long life suffering. Those around me, especially those dear to me are holding me to this life. Several times someone very close to me attempted suicide & because of that I had to change my life. Suicide runs in the family, so sometimes I wonder why I did not go all the way - I guess I'm lucky God found me
Rose
a moment passing, a moment in our lives. Blessed Be

melissa
Your poem said a lot about how I feel. I don't think I can ever do right or make anyone happy. everyday I wake up wanting to die. Thank you for writting a poem that I can relate too. I'm not that talented to get my feelings out and reading about the same feelings I have kind of helps deal with the pain.
Alex

This poem described exactly how I was feeling a little while ago. It brought back things I didn't want to think about, but it truly is an amazing poem. It really brings the reader in so they can experience what goes on inside a suicidal person's head.

The nights I've lied awake in my bad all alone i think is there any one who can say things that i keep inside that i would never tell the rest of the world for the feaar that i may be called crazy that i may said to want to hurt some one when that is not at all what i want i just want to end every ones disapointment for itis all because of me. you are the one who can do so for me
