"I've always had this feeling that I wouldn't live to see past 30. Life has always been hard for me and I know that one day, it'll kill me." 

I put down my pen and slash my wrists, painting the paper a beautiful red. 

I look at the note and tuck it in a book for safe keeping. 

I look down at my thighs and see the words "die" and "you won't be missed" etched in to my skin, glowing in the lamp light. 

I reach for the Advil on my desktop and open the bottle, throwing my head back and gulping down as many as my throat would allow. 

I sigh and stumble to my bed, a wicked smile on my face and an excited feeling in my stomach.

Awaiting death makes me feel alive.

That poem is so realistic and true, it shows what's happening to our society and how it's going down....

I have always loved that song every since I first heard it. I hope you know that you are worthy of life and that is why you are still alive. God says you matter and are His prized vessel. 👼
