Favorite Quote:
it is what it is

Life is a long road,
That no one wants to travel alone.
Taking each bend,
And going where shown.

Things will get tough,
It will be hard to hold on.
But know how much you'll be missed,
If you were gone.

It may seem easy to give up,
To just let go of all the pain.
But stick around,
And so much more you'll gain.

Never settle for the least,
Shoot for the stars,
Reach for the sky.
Because even though it seems the only way,
To be free you do not have to die.

Hold on and stick through it,
Keep you head held high.
Think of a happy time,
And let out a little sigh.

Know people love you,
They care too much to lose you.
And dying,
Is not the only thing to do.

The author's comments:
I was inspired to write this when my best friend allowed me to open up to him about my feelings and he told me that dying isn't the only way you can be free. by writing this I'm hoping that others will read it and understand suicide is a permanent fix to a temporary problem.
