Suicide is a subject that most people would rather not talk about. I know that a lot of people think about suicide, but most people don't succeed or even attempt it. There are 10.7 deaths due to suicide per 100,000 people according to the National Center for Health Statistics. I know I have thought about suicide, but should my friends and family really worry about me?
Suicide has been apart of my life since seventh grade. I only wish that someone would have known though. In seventh grade when one of my fellow class mates and friend committed suicide. I only wish I would have know or that someone would have known that she had those thoughts and that it wasn't so enclosed today and she would have felt like she could talk about it because then maybe should would be here today. A close friend of mine has attempted suicide and gone to get help for it and I am just glad that she felt like she could tell someone about what was going on with her because she is still with us now and I am just grateful for that.
Personally myself I have thought about suicide and I at one point in time had a plan and everything. I didn't really tell anyone about this and I didn't really like to talk much about this subject. Now that I have realized what can happen if you don't talk about suicide and how and where you can get help have been talking to my friends. I have realized not only through my faith but also through what would happen to everyone that cared for me that suicide is a wrong choice. I have written poems and expressed how I feel in journaling to help overcome these thoughts and now I am over these thoughts. I know that I may think about it sometimes but I know I will never do it.
Here is a poem that I had written. It is entitled "What To Do"
People live and people die
And guys come and go
But what happened after guys come yet before they go
And after we live, but before we die
That's the most joyous part isn't it
But when we have to say good-bye
And life fells like it's coming to an end
Sometimes I fell like I should give up all together
But then there is times when I want to live forever
What should I do, live or die
I could end my life with one quick swallow
And would I regret it
I don't know, sometimes I think I would
And sometimes I wouldn't
We take the good with the bad
Then we just say good-bye to the world
And go to sleep forever
Life is full of good times and bad times. All though sometimes the bad times seem to horrible and you can't stand it you have to know it will get better. This all might not get better in one day or even one year, but some day you will be thankful you didn't take your life. I hope all of you that are reading this right now and are contemplating suicide go and talk to someone whether it be a parent, a friend, a counselor, or anyone else. Someone out there cares about you!
