Favorite Quote:
"Thoughtcrime does not entail death: thoughtcrime is death."
- George Orwell, 1984

Blind through your tears
Hardship through the years
No life
No pain
No sorrow
Never to see tomorrow
People staring up at you
Hoping you don’t go through
What you’re planning to do
Thinking no one to hold me
No one to care
No one to share
Your thoughts with
Suddenly you hear this
This voice a
Small but mighty cry
Someone wants you to survive
You’re thinking why
Why, what’s the point
Your hear several voices joined
Together saying come down, don’t jump
You hesitate to step off the ledge
Crying and trying to keep your head
You yell and take the pledge
You hit the ground and
You’re dead
