168 (who?)
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.

Oi, I find spontaneous poetry to be at least as meaningful as hours-long poetry; don't get upset over it. <3

The thing about death
Or running out or meth
Is that people would finally know
Who you are

But I'd be a hypocrite to intend
Based on what I never said
It's my fault that I'm low
So far

I wrote my poems just in case
But don't worry; I will wait
Until they deserve to be needed to be read
And suicide wasn't the reason I was dead

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.
