This poem addresses suicide, and in no way promotes the voluntary premature ending of one’s life. This is written with the sole purpose of reaching out to those who have struggled, to help them understand that there are countless others who relate. Despite what you may be going through, know that you are not alone.
If you ever feel suicidal, never forget that you are loved, and that resources are available to you which can help.
Be strong. I promise it will get better. Your life means more than you could ever imagine.
For every start, there is an end
We knew this all along, my friend
I say this to the ones I’ll miss
Please do not cry – I wanted this
I fine’ly put my thoughts at ease
To join the wind, the grass, and trees
My mind no longer feels such pain
As now I dance under the rain
If I can leave one thing behind
Please, let it be my peace of mind
Let go of all that causes stress
Don’t let them say you must confess
Live without regret, or fear
For no one knows when ends are near
Sing the songs you want to sing
The castles yours, Queen or King
Do the things you wish to do
Love this world, for it loves you
Write a story you can tell
Like mine, my friend, my last farewell
