Today is International Survivors of Suicide.
Just hear me out before you decide
To end your life by suicide.
I’m left behind and want you to know
I want to feel your pain before you go.
Tell me in tears how you feel
If the words you say don’t help to heal
Before you go just hear me out
My life without you would be all about
A hole in my heart, my life a void
My eyes fill up, my world destroyed
I’ll miss you so much, it hurts you know
Just hear me out before you go
It isn’t about strength, courage or pride
But a courageous battle you try to hide.
A desperate scream, no end in sight
A decision is made, you fight the fight
Just know I love you, before you go
So I’m not left behind, hoping you know
No matter the decision you do decide
In life and death, I’ll stand by your side.
Written by Catherine Mellen
It’s not how one dies, but how one lives which makes them who they are.
Depression is real, suicide is real, mental health awareness is real.
To many broken children growing up in a fast changing world.
Empathy, kindness and support matters.
