WHISPERS 2

I HEAR THEM WITH THEIR WORDS
THEY ARE NEVER VERY NICE,
TELLING ME I'M ULGY, STUPID, AND
THAT I DON'T DESERVE TO LIVE.
WOULD THEY BE SORRY IF I DID 
IF I ENDED MY LIFE? 
TAKE A KNIFE AND SLICE MY WRISTS OR
WOULD A GUN BE BETTER?
FAST AND QUICK.
I THINK SOMETIMES WHAT LIFE WOULD BE
WITHOUT ME IN IT.
WOULD MY PARENTS BE HAPPIER? 
WOULD THEY MISS ME? 
THEY DON'T SEEM TO NOTICE ME WHEN 
I'M AT HOME OR DO A GOOD JOB.
WOULD THE KIDS AT SCHOOL NOTICE ME GONE? 
MAYBE IT'S ALL IN MY HEAD
AND I'M IMAGINING THE WORDS BEING SAID
THE KIDS WHO WALK DOWN THE HALL ARE 
NOT REALLY THERE. 
MAYBE I JUST MADE THEM UP AND THEY ARE 
JUST WHISPERS IN MY HEAD?
OR COULD THEY ACTUALLY BE REAL?
I WISH I KNEW BECAUSE EACH DAY
I WANT TO DIE.
I WANT TO DO WHAT THEY ARE TELLING ME TO DO
I DON'T KNOW HOW TO STOP THEM FROM TALKING
BUT I GUESS I'LL HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL
I WALK DOWN THE HALL AT SCHOOL
AND LISTEN TO EVERYONE WHO WALKS BY ME
TO KNOW IF THEY ARE REAL
OR JUST
WHISPERS IN MY HEAD...

LOST LOVE

I loved you 
with 
everything 
that I had
but you 
took 
my heart 
and 
shattered it 
to 
pieces...

How can I go on without you?

Thirteen Reasons Why



I read this a couple of years ago and fell in love with the book. It was so heartwrenching that it never left my mind, but it was also a book that got me to start writing about the kids in school today. 

Kids that think their life isn't worth living anymore. As parents, we have so much going on in our lives that we are sometimes too busy to see what is going on in their life. We're too busy to stop, listen, and talk to our children. 

Suicide is real and we must not hide it from the world. Children, teenagers, and adults. It doesn't matter what the age. It's out there and it's happening to people we know and love. If someone seems like there is something bothering them, it's probably because there is. Find a way to let them know that you are there for them. That you will listen.

If you haven't read the book, I suggest that you do. If you have Netflix, you can also watch the new Netflix original series that was made of the book. I will tell you this much, make sure the box of kleenex is sitting near you because you will need it. 

It was so good, and it would be nice to see a second season to the series.
