this poem really got to me because i have a really good friend who has just recently become depressed and told me she really wanted to kill herself. i talked to her and she no longer wants to kill herself but still thinks suicide is the only way. and i am going to be by her side until the end of her depression. and of course i am going to give her this poem. Thanks.
Wow this is like i think the most inspiering poem, see i hurt myself like, really hurt myself i find any object (mostly knifes) that are sharp and start cutting away and sometimes i can get dizzy but after reading that poem it mad me think differently! THANK YOU SO MUTCH!

For everything there must come a last.

A last minute, a last hour, a last month, day, or year.

A last drink, a last coke, a last tequila, scotch, or beer.

A last love, a last heart, a last kiss, hug, or rage...

Or even the last words written on a page.

But the worst last thing is your last breath
because what is to follow will surely be your death.
