Random Poem:


Have you ever felt so depressed
to the point you wished to die
just to see who really cared,
and at your funeral...who would cry?
Have you ever examined your wrists,
to see if your veins were clear
so you can grab a knife and slice real slow
without even shedding a tear.
Wondering about when you were found,
who would rush you to the hospital fast...
Or think about the rumors that would spread
and who would be the one to put you on blast?
Would you go after that ONE person
not caring there's nothing to gain,
just thaat one thought in your mind,
your giving them back all the pain.
Well, you can say you've never had these thoughts
and your life is as happy as can be,
but trust me one day you will get them
because this shit doesn't just happen to me.
