I want to be a lesson to forgetting that love needs to be shown everyday.
I want to be a lesson for the men that beat their wives, and the children that grew up watching it. I want to be a lesson for the cheaters and the broken hearts.
I want to be a lesson for those that don’t understand, but more so don’t try to. I want to be a lesson for not taking everyday and making it another day worth living.
I want to be a lesson for the psychiatrists that give 5 diagnoses of different disorders and expect you to feel normal.
I want to be a lesson that a small cry for help is whether or not that person wakes up the next morning. I want to be a lesson that pain for some cuts deeper for others.
I want to be a lesson that people need people, but more importantly people need the right kind of people.
I want to be a lesson that love keeps the world running round. I want to be a lesson.

But most importantly, I want to be an example. I am an example that suicide doesn’t solve this lesson. Living solves this problem. I am that living lesson.
