Suicide

By Athalia

***

Suicide is the most selfish thing you can do

So much pain on those who loved you

While you just get to escape

Escape in death.

But maybe all those people

Who couldn't see past the outside

Past the obvious

And brought me crying to my knees

At the end of every day

Maybe those who brought me to this

And took joy in my pain

Were the most selfish ones after all.

A/N: Don't worry. I won't kill myself. But in people between the ages fourteen and twenty-one, suicide is the third leading cause of death in the U.S.A. So think before you torment people. Please review.
