"What do I have to live for?" You scream as you stand on that ledge.
Is this what you thought your friends meant when they told you get out from under that rock and live your life on the edge?
I know you think this is your only option and that this is the end for you.
You keep thinking that you are completely alone and you insist no one knows what you are going through.
However, I know, and I think that you know too, this is just a lie that you are being forced to believe.
Five years ago, I was where you are now. There was so much pain and I only wanted some kind of permanent reprieve.
Only 15 years old and alone I would sit with a knife hovering over my wrists.
I was too scared of the pain and the blood to cut deep enough.
At the time I thought it was my cowardice which stopped me from calling my own bluff.
Later I realized it was because I was never alone like I had thought I was.
God, all his angels, and saints were there, screaming in my ear to drop the knife and to accept my flaws.
So please hear me out.
You need to listen to me now.
You need to forget everything else that you have been told.
You have to understand that you are a masterpiece painted in pure gold.
You are special because God made only one of you and you cannot be replaced.
Please don't make this decision in such haste.
Step off of that ledge and sink deep into my embrace.
I promise you that you will never be alone.
If there is no one is arms reach, I'm telling you to just pick up the phone.
Call your mother, your brother, your sister, or even your sixth cousin three times removed.
All I'm trying to prove is that you have an army backing you so stop using that excuse.
Open your eyes and just realize something for yourself.
Suicide doesn't take the pain away from you, it only transfers it to someone else.
