this poem describes how i sometimes feel. but i will never commit suicide because as afraid as i am of this life, i am even more scared of death.

as the thoughts of suicide invade my mind
i wonder why i should hold on to this world
this world that has left me so far behind
and i slowly begin to unfurl

after every imperfection
they say life will go on
but i can feel their rejection
i'm becoming undone

my life hasn't turned out
quite the way i thought it would be
and the future i doubt
as i make my final plea

every time i screw up
no matter whose fault it is
my parents blow up
im falling into an abyss

if someone just once
could see me without flaw
i'm not such a dunce
after all

but noone is here for me
as i right my final goodbye
to let the world see
i really can fly

in the clouds i will soar
away from this life
leaving behind the hurt at my core
now, its just me and my knife
