I’m so sick of suicide
It’s everywhere I look
Pictures, and in movies
In poetry and books

I’m so sick of suicide
It’s pathetic and it’s weak
Blah blah blah so awful
Outlook always bleak

This life’s just not worth living
Could they be any more cliché’?
I know that I just can’t go on
Isn’t that what they say?

Do you live in China
Without freedom’s basic choice?
Are you a woman in Afghanistan?
Forbidden to have a voice.

Are you starving now in Africa?
Surrounded by disease
Or under corrupt dictatorship
Forced upon your knees

These people rise to challenges
We cannot comprehend
They live their lives from day to day
And triumph in the end

But daddy won’t buy me the car
He promised me last fall
Oh what now am I to do?
I’ll have to end it all.

My girlfriend found another
She loves him more than me
I’ll bleed until I’m empty
Then she’ll finally see.

I’m so sick of suicide.
I have extensive personal contact with suicide, and dealing with suicidal individuals. I'm not generally this cold on the subject, but I needed the cathartic release this piece provided me.

the funny thing is, people who live in those situations are less likely to be suicidal... but it makes sense because they have more of a reason to be driven. and purposelessness is a huge problem, along with a lack of connection to society. we see this disconnect quite often in society these days and growing among youth as time passes

i know suicidal people and i hope they never read what i just read this is really fucked up and i get that you need to speak your mind but at least give people a warning i personally think you owe an apology to the people you offend because it isn't always about what you said i had a bad experience when i was around 5 i didnt realize what he was doing to me until a year ago and it has kinda fucked with me and tbh i have had sucidal thoughts before not because of that exact reason but multiple

This hurts me.

This isn't why people commit suicide

Getting called "fat" and being abused by your brother is why people commit suicide

Being bullied by your teachers, and having a target pinned onto your back for bullies to take aim at is why people commit suicide

Being taunted and treated less than human, all because of who you love, is why people commit suicide

You don't understand what we're going through

And it's people like you who push us over the edge, leaving us to scramble for our blades, nooses, and pills

This is an incredibly hurtful poem to suicidal people, and this does not help at all. On top of everything we're dealing with, you're basically calling us weak and cowardly people. How in the world is that supposed to help? Also, I'm not suicidal because mom and dad don't buy me a car, I'm suicidal for many reasons. I believe myself to be a failure as a student and son, I believe that the world as we know it is screwed, I think that despite my efforts to improve my mental well-being that I have not made any progress, and the feeling of mental pain I get every day is enough to make me cut myself every night. I do think about the less fortunates of the world, I think of them all the time. There's ethnic groups in Burma fighting for survival, a Civil War in South Sudan ripping the country apart, there's ISIS in Syria and Iraq, Uighurs fighting the Chinese, cartel violence in South America, and I feel all of this. And it does not make me feel any better. This poem had made my night a lot worse, and I'm going to try and get over that. I hope you know how much you've hurt so many people that have read this.

I agree with the previous person... sort of. But what you said is also the same way I feel.. I wish I could do more for those less fortunates... but I am way past believing I could be any great hero. However, like the previous person said, he may have been sarcastic about the whole thing and may have even been frustrated because he lost so many people to suicide to various reasons, including those he described. Thus he may have had to vent like he said in the description. People deal with all this grief in various ways.

However, at face value, this does not mean I agree with any of the statements that this guy wrote at the end about why we are suicidal. I am just trying to look at it all from various angles. and I have great sympathy towards you and others that experience the same feelings as you do.

I'm not trying to insult you in any way but...have you ever heard of 'sarcasm'? That's what he/she does. A unique story sometimes is just simple sarcasm written on it.
Yeah, it might hurt suicidal victims. But, it's just mere sarcasm. He/She is not trying to hurt them. It's just sarcasm. A unique story.

Just because there are issues in the world, does not make yours less important or meaningless. I hate this piece, because you are telling people to get over themselves. Suicide is serious. Please read up on it and study the psychological meaning behind suicide- because this piece is extremely ridiculous and hurtful.

Well this certainly was different.
In a Neo-Nazi kinda way.
They have a right to express they're opinions and so do you. 
If you were to look up a poem about a pedophile expressing how much he loves to molest children: That is the equivalent of the feeling I got from your poem.
You might be intelligent or a really nice guy, but what you have written here is a disgusting caricature.

That being said. I agree in many areas of what you said, but not all.
I think faking suicide for attention is selfish and cowardly, or people who do it for over dramatic reasons. But I doubt anyone has committed suicide over a car.

You could write me back a mean spirited reply. (From the looks of below, I doubt your that kind of person.) But it really wouldn't hurt, because I would know its coming from a guy who wrote this poem.
I mean seriously, this is like cartoonishly evil. If you were to pull the veil and reveal its just a troll I wouldn't be surprised.
It's well written though.

Look, im not gonna be the guy that curses you out, but man, this hurt alot of people. It has a good moral but dude, this is pretty serious. Alot of people probably have friends and family who have killed themselfs for more serious reasons than cars and relationships. Just be a bit less agressive with the subject. Good idea though.

Well, this just makes me SICK. I'm suicidal, not because "Daddy won't buy me a car", but because nobody appreciates me for what I do and who I am. I draw wolves and canines a lot. Therefore I am now permanently known as the "Freak" Throughout the WHOLE of my school. Or "Wolfgirl". And that's not all. Nobody will be there for me, nobody ever is. And nobody ever asked you for your overreaction. I'm so sick of people who think suicide is weak. WELL GUESS WHAT. Us suicidals have bigger problem than whatever the heck is on your mind. That's what makes us "Suicidals". We have tough lives, we go through more than anyone else does. We don't do sucide for the fun of it, or to make people happy about our deaths. We do it for peace. An exit. Instead of just sitting there and letting people do things to you. Don't you think that's a better idea? And people who rub it in others faces about being suicidal, ARE NOT SUICIDAL. THEY DO IT FOR ATTENTION. I'm only bringing up the fact that i'm suicidal because...Well, I might as well not even be looking at this. HAVE A NICE DAY.

You cannot condem or stereotype someone until you know their story.

Would you like to know why I attempted suicide when I was 11? I'm epileptic and I used to get constant verbal abuse everyday at school and I wanted out.

It's not all just because 'Daddy didn't buy me a car' or " My girlfriend doesn't love me'. There are so many other reasons.

- People get bullied to the point of suicide because they're smart or their looks or because of their sexuality.

- Some people are born with mental disorders. Such as Schizophrenia, the voices in their heads tell them to do it. Anorexia or Bulimia, people with it become depressed and attempt to off themselves.

- Depression.

- Getting any form of abuse ( mental, physical, verbal) can lead to it

It is mental problem. Some people do it for the most stupid reasons. Others do it because we fell worthless, pathetic, like the world would be better without us or we just want out. We don't want to live in a messed up world with close minded idiots like you who think that all suicides are done for petty things.

When I was 11, I was seconds from hanging myself when I got the most beautiful text message from my friend about how much she cared about me. That's what  made me hesitate. I got all this crap at school, sure, but I had my family andat the very least, this one girl who cared about me. That's the one reason I didn't do it. A lot of these people aren't always as lucky as I am.  

So think a bit more carefully before you start exclaiming such utter nonsense. You don't have the slightest clue what you're talking about

Dude. This is a mental fucking disorder--these people have their own issues and problems and you really don't have the right to tell them what to be upset about, You don't seem to understand that this isn't only wired to hopelessness but, buddy, this is a chemical imbalance. This is an issue deeply equated to things going on in our culture, in our lifetime, embedded in our lives and making us hopeless.

This issue is not one that should be simplified by your ignorance, for the sake of our societal progression. Yeah, there are a lot countries that have it worse but these are not generally a bunch of spoiled brats you are dealing with, these are people who have a disease. I'm really beginning to doubt that your personal contact with these people is all too 'extensive' because you really show a lack of understanding.

So, I really encourage you to educate yourself--because I'm observing that your deepest understanding of depression and hopelessness and emotional stability is limited to the influences of this site and cynics like yourself. Please...these people are suffering by the imbalance of their neurons. Trust me, the lot of them beat themselves up for this all the time and this "people in Africa have it worse, obviously you're a spoiled brat who doesn't deserve issues" is not giving them a wake up call, it's just giving them an outlet to tear themselves down even more and, well, fester in the idea of suicide. 

And I thought you said your were fed up with that.

I'm suicidal. And I've had my reasons.

-My own father hates me.

-I've been bullied from age 7-10

-My own uncle raped me from age 5-11

-I have no real friends

So there. You had to vent it out, I had to vent it out.

I like it, the wording is great, but I think that suicide is based off of a little more than not getting a car. By the way, suicide is kept hidden by most people, they try not show it, so if it's being rubbed in your face it's not by those who are suicidal. No offense to your poem, I see where your coming from... just it's not that simple. I'm sure several of these other people of different countries are suicidal, too.

We all get that there are millions of people that have it much worse, but people who commit or have attempted suicide often have mental disorders that cause them to get depressed easily and (speaking from experience) once you hit rock bottom there's very few things that'll stop you from ending it. You won't care if someone else has it a hell of a lot worse than you.

You think people only commit suicide because of not getting a car or little things like that? Ok fine. Maybe there are people like that but that doesn't mean other people don't have real problems. This kinda offended me somehow probably cuz you seemed somewhat closed minded on the subject. But hey, it's your release so I respect that. Just hopefully you see the bigger picture to it.

I loved this.
I feel like I have to put a disclaimer in here because so many people have been getting their panties in a wad over this poem, so rest assured that I've known many suicidal individuals, I've actually attempted suicide before when I was young and angsty, blah blah blah, who hasn't nowadays.
But I feel your poem speaks to something incredibly profound. The contrast between what you feel you /should/ feel you hear of a suicide and what you actually feel are two different things. Of course you're sad - devastated, actually - but at some point, you get angry. You can't rationalize what could have possibly lead to this. You're angry at them for leaving you, when there are others who seem much worse off.
Great job with this, it really makes you think.

this makes me really angry, you put people in a box with a name on it. it shouldn't go this way. you better do not think of suicide if you don't know how to handle it.
maybe it freaks you out a little, understandable. but do not tell people those fake things like you wanted to die just because a damn car. dont think like this buddy, you will get some comments. your poem is good, but read what i said..
