I, once again, find myself barely hanging on, Trying desperately not to sink in a crowd Full of people who simply do not care. I tried, Until I snuck into the bathroom And saw the blood trickling down my arm, I felt at peace. I tried, Until even the people who made me happy No longer brought me anything but despair Simply because I was too scared to disappoint them. I tried, Until the bottle of pills was rattling in between my shaky fingers. The tears would no longer come, For the world I live in has let me seen too much horror And now even death doesn’t scare me. Still, I tried, One final time I called out as I slipped away, But there was no one left to help.
