You don't always have to die to end your life...

I'm suicidal

-such a scary word-

but I use it in a way

uncommonly heard

I want to kill myself

-yes it's true-

just erase the girl

you all once knew

but I don't want to die

-why would I want that?-

instead I'd rather

fix my past

kill the girl

-I used to be-

and keep on living

as the new me

I'm suicidal yes

-but I'm okay-

because now my life

is vacant of pain

This is such a unique way of looking at suicide! Starting over by killing the person you once were, replacing them with the new and improved version who doesn't have the problems you once suffered. Such a positive way of looking at suicide; a rebirth rather than a finality. Awesome poem! Very inspirational!
