My life was going great then it took an unexpected turn
I was sailing on smooth seas, until I hit a wave.

It turned out to be an endless storm
My crew all left me.
They stabbed me in the back
I said I was okay
I tried to hide my pain with a smile
Hoping maybe it'll go away.

I hoped they'd follow me along
But they left me abandoned in the empty seas 
They never really cared; they let me sink
I had to travel without them.

I acted like it didn't bother me
But really deep down my heart was broken
It had been cut into a million pieces.

I had disappeared.
I was unwanted, I was forgotten
I became an island, Isolated all alone
I was a crumbled piece of paper.

My tears have become an ocean
I am underwater, sinking deeper and deeper
I'm trying to escape, but I have forgotten how to swim 
I'm calling out for help, but no one can hear my screams
There are no lifeguards, no one can save me
Soon I become an ice cube, too numb to feel the pain. 

It's too late
I have given up I have drowned
I have died.

This was inspired from 13 reasons why, an original tv series on Netflix. My purpose was to raise awareness for suicide. Suicide is serious and is not a joke. It is real, it happens. Nobody should feel alone, and/or turn to suicide. There are about 121 suicides committed a day.
