I often feel that my life has no meaning,

I am a wandering soul, 

Forever cursed to walk these empty hallways, 

The lights of hope flickering over head, 

Until they take their last breath, 

and wink out until I am nothing,

Nothing but a husk, 

Walking, 

Walking,

Walking. 

 

We are often told to reach for the skies, 

But when I look up all I see is darkness,

And it’s monsters,

Threathening to consume me.

 

Is life a blessing or a curse?

Why do I wake up in the morning? 

What is my purpose?

 

I am a machine,

forever running the same course.

Are the thoughts in my head even mine?

Or are they the thoughts of society,

Whispering in my ear?

 

What is my purpose,

When all I am is another white mask,

In the sea of supressed souls.

 

Life is a journey,

meant to be savored, 

But when I have no meaning, 

Is there even a life to live?

 

For I am a wandering soul,

Forever cursed to walk the same empty hallways, 

Wearing the same white mask, 

And when my light snuffs out, 

darkness consumes me.

..SUICIDE..

..SUICIDE..

It’s really hard trying to understand what’s going on in a suicidal person’s mind. Their thoughts seem absurd to us that we often choose to neglect them thinking that it’s “just a phase” or “they’ll get over it” or “they’re just angry” or “they can’t be serious”, mind you this is the worst decision we’ve been making, instead let’s show them that they are significant, loved and cared for, let’s try to understand their point of views and stop criticism.. avoid using harsh words around them because for them these words are so loud that it causes chaos in their heads.
