Temporary 

Have you ever felt like you just wanted to leave this world? 
Don't kill yourself, that's never the answer…that's what you've always heard. 
But you feel so worthless, unloved, lonely, and sad. 
And also just the fact that you're depressed makes you mad. 
When you go out in public you try to put on a mask and hide. 
But it isn't hard for those around you to see that you're dying inside. 
People tell you that this won't last forever, and that you're going to be alright. 
But you don't feel that way when you cry yourself to sleep at night. 
You're barely coping while trying to fight the pain. 
And right now you don't see any good reason to remain. 
You feel so hopeless that you think the only way you could possibly end your strife, 
Would have to be with a bullet, a noose, a lot of pills, or a knife. 
But the fact is simply that your thoughts aren't true. 
And that ending your life is the worst possible thing you could do. 
Because there are people who love you, there are people who care. 
There are people who will help you escape your despair. 
I know this is hard for you to believe, but don't doubt, 
That someone will be there if you'd only reach out. 
So instead of trying to cut your life short, 
Go and ask somebody for their support. 
And I know that right now your life feels scary, 
But I promise you that your suffering is only temporary.
