I'm sixteen,
Doubt I'll see thirty
Hopefully my blade'll be dirty
Or something
And I'll die.

I don't want to die;
Just want it to stop,
Everything in my head
Telling me I'm better off dead.

I cut myself,
I said it.
And you
Just read it.
I'm just some kid
Behind a screen,
So why should you care?

I'm not just 'some kid';
I'm thousands.
I'm the ones people laugh at,
Spit at,
Swear at,

I'm not a minority;
I'm a majority.
All those kids alone,
That death will come.

We're not hopeless.
We hope for
Literally wrote it as it came to me, so I know it sucks. Just felt like I needed to get it out.

This actually made me cry. That rarely ever happens when I'm by myself, but this made me cry a bit (somewhere between very sad and a bit relieved that someone understands) because one of my friends was complaining about "emos" who "can never be happy enough and cry a lot not because they're sad but because they want attention". When I was twelve I went through a phase where I couldn't be happy in the least, and that was when I heard my friend ranting. I felt betrayed and alone, and even so much later it takes a weight off to know I'm not. Reading this has reminded me of what that felt like, and I'm starting on as many ways as I can think of to help other people understand better. So it's made me sad that so many people are driven to taking their own lives, but it's made me hopeful that maybe we can one day reach a point where people understand each other better and try to help when someone's cutting rather than see how much further they can be pushed.

I'm sorry it made you cry. :hug:

It really annoys me when people dismiss things like self-harm and depression as being attention-seeking. I self-harmed for three years (the last time was at the start of January this year) and a few times my own friends (although admittedly exasperated) accused me of attention-seeking. Whilst, in my case, it wasn't for attention, if someone does do it for attention then it's still a serious problem and should be treated as such.

Thank you for taking the time to comment. :)
For everyone that hopes to die remember;
That someone cares, 
And if no one does remember that I care,
If you've survived this long you can survive till it's over,
Stay alive to change the world, for the better,
Not worse as it will be without you,
You are Beautiful and perfect just the way you are,
Unlike the bullies that mean nothing,

Stay alive and strong And change the world for the better by living your life to the fullest.
