How easy it would be
Just to die
How easy it seems
To take my own life

I've been given the chance
Many a time
I was left alone for hours
I would be dead before they'd notice

Who would miss me
If I died
How would they react in class
When they announce that a student
Took
Her
Own
Life

The stress
The pressure
Would just be
Lifted from my shoulders

No more worries
About school
About friends
About family
It would all be just gone

Like magic

I would be able to sleep forever
In a deep peaceful state of mind
I would be in heaven
Hopefully
Where the streets are paved with marble
And the scent of vanilla wafers in the air

I would be in endless day
Endless life
That doesn't seem so bad.

But
That
Would
Be
Terribly
Boring
