Break yourself
Let out a sigh among the wreck
Pick up the shattered remains
Don’t care if they cut the flesh
Don’t care if the blood stains what had once been
It doesn't make a difference
All alone in the rabbit hole
With no white rabbit in sight
The world is up there
But the sobs echoing off the emptiness
Reach their ears too late
A convoluted comfort
The knife glints in the darkness
And all because the misstep that made you fall
Was just an illusion

I wrote this to express what a mistake suicide is, but that I understand what suicidal people might be going through.

I was saying that the suicidal people don't care. I think we should care, but in a helpful way. In this poem I just wanted to show what a mistake suicide is. There are so many good things after that one bad thing.

- if by these lines you mean we should stop caring about suicidal people, then i agree. the problem with suicide is all the attention those people get. and that is a problem because what do suicide cases want? Attention- whether for better or worse. some want it for narcassistc stupidd reasons, while others genuinly need help. but it's the wrong thing to do either way. if EVERYONE ignores it, then eventually, after a spike in successful suicide rates the numbers would gradually diminish. then the idea would become so outdated it would become rare. unfortunatly the process would take an unpredictable amount of years and humans are far too caring to let it happen.
