About the Poem

We all have days where we feel we can't go on anymore, as if we're all alone. In this poem, I guess I was trying to depict the mind of those who come closer to not going on than most. The people who sometimes choose a permanent solution to a temporary problem. A reflection in the mind of those who contemplate the end...suicide.

Remembrance

She remembers it all,
All the people who had said
They cared, but did they really?

She remembers it all,
The sound of laughter and
How happy she'd been, but was she really?

She remembers it all,
His arms around her and
He said "I love you," but did he really?

She remembers it all,
The pain she'd felt when he left,
How her heart ached, but was it really?

She remembers it all,
The feeling of being so alone,
The feeling no one cared, but did they really?

But now they'll remember her,
Staring at the knife in her hand
How easy to slit her wrists, but will she really?

Your poem really relates to me. I was touched by the words. I used to think that was the answer for everything. by slitting my wrist. I have slowly stopped seems like each time I did it the pain was making every thing go away. but my life still isnt that great. but day by day Im surviving. enjoyed reading your poem though.

sandra

Crystal
This Poem is so in depeth, i can relate to this so much. because it is talking bout a girl who was going through alot and was wanting to kill her self. i have tried that before, but it isn't worth killing yourself over some guy or over any one. God has put as all here for a reason and he has a plan, i read that poem to my mother and she cried, because it brought back memories for her and she looked at me and have you ever tried that anymore, and i didn't answer her. i am 15 yrs old and i have tried it twice. So if any young people reads this, please take heed. and not take your life or try to take your life for anyone else. Good Job keep up the good work!
Angie
Awesome Poem, reminds me of when I was a little girl

I loved that poem. I tried to kill myself in August and almost succeeded but now i love life because now i see every little thing that is important. So anyone who wants 2 die, DONT cause there is no guy not even your dad or anything worth dying.

This poem was REALLY good. I like how it keeps things open. How you didn't say wether the girl will slit her wrist or not so you can basically put ur own ending. GREAT JoB.

"Remembrance" brought many memories flooding back to my mind..my depression after a hard break-up, the suicidal thoughts, which I still have and many other painful memories.
