Thoughts are racing through my head

I have nothing to show for the life that I have led

Every word, every action, were just empty shells

Just a reflection of the hell from which I fell.

I want to shut down and say goodbye

To welcome the blackness on which I so deeply rely

But if I do, I have nothing left to defy

For by dying, I end everything I ever stood for in my life.

And if I left the world now, what exactly would I miss?

Would I miss the tingling, the passion felt from a kiss?

But most of all, I wonder who would miss me

For I fell like in my life, my mistakes are all that people see.

Would they truly care if I said goodbye to the world?

Would I just become another statistic, one more suicide girl?

...

With hesitation, I walk away from death

Because why give it up, when life is the only thing I have left?

With reluctance, I turn around once again

For why lose the chance, when there's still time left to sin?


With tears in my eyes, I slowly fall alseep

Tomorrow, I think as I drift away, maybe tomorrow I'll take the leap.
