I lied, I said I don’t think about suicide but the truth is I do. I think about suicide when I close my eyes wondering if I just stayed in this state would anyone miss me would anyone care. Today was a good day I got bullied twice, once on social media when I posted a photo of me crying.
Suicide Rate For Girls Has Been Rising Faster Than For Boys, Study Finds:
by Sasha Ingber
Podcast heard on NPR: All Things Considered
It was an attempt to express the pain I am in. One troll said I should just do and stop being a loser. Another troll said I was chicken scratch for not following through. I guess at some point when I really get tired I will just go to sleep. Oh wait I said bullied twice didn’t I well the second time was by the group of friends I love. My bestie who valued to protect me seemingly joined in with the assault. I guess she was jealous because her boyfriend saying hello to me as he helped me pick up books knocked over by the trolls strolling the hallways. He just being nice. Somehow my best friend took it as I was making a move on him damn the kids who knocked my books out of my arm. Today I will just sit here in my own private hell being a spectator to my own demise. The sky is a perfect blue. The clouds are perfect white, yes today I think it’s the best time to fly away.

Look who came to visit. Wow look my bestie and her boyfriend standing over my casket crying. I wonder if those are real tears. Her boyfriend seems to be real. Oh look my old teacher who allowed the trolls to torture me he’s crying too. Wow a bunch of students I never knew while alive all here to see the girl who hung herself.
Why couldn’t these people care enough to visit me when I was alive?
This short story is inspired by several articles about teenage suicide. Here are some facts about suicide: According to the American Foundation For Suicide Prevention “2017 study” over 1,400,000 Americans will attempt suicide out of that over 47,000 will succeed. Thirteen percent are young girls between the ages of 10-14. That percentage is rising. Young adults between the ages of 15-24 the rate is 14.46%. Middle-aged adults between the ages of 45-54 the rate is 20.2%.
We must do better as parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and people of influence and just in general. To end this war on suicide we must be a better society. Be kind, have compassion, empathy and patience because you never know what a person is going through.
