I'm a stranger

Trapped in my own mind

Trying to escape this Black Hole

I call Life...

I sit and watch as the blood trickles down my arm

Trapped in a world where all you see is harm

Wishing times would change

Doomed is what I am...BANG

The gun in my hand, the bullet in my head

Slowly fading away until I am dead.

Wondering as the last moments go by...

How many deaths of teenagers have to happen so people bat an eye?

Bullying is all I knew, self-harm and violence

Make a change, I beg of you, Please!

That way more and more people dont end up like me...

I personally love deep and depressing stories, and I think this was very well written. Keep writing!!
