Killing the child,
at such a young age,
Someone gets drunk,
acts on a blind rage
someone gets hurt,
hides in fear,
turns it too anger,
drowns it with tears,
turns to drugs,
to sooth the pain,
turns to alcohol,
feels nothing to gain,
self mutilation,
instead of crying,
just wanting to die,
instead of trying,
kept in the dark,
is all the rage,
all the hurting,
all lifes pain,
dressing in black,
theres never a smile,
does bad in school,
for only a while,
drops out of school,
hatred full throttled,
depression gets worse,
turns to the bottle,
gets in the car,
goes to the store,
friends won't stop calling,
phone rings more and more,
picks up some liqor,
back on the road,
runs into a ditch,
the car explodes,
winds up in a grave,
a hole in the ground,
a victum to society,
alas, eternal peace is found,
so ends the story,
a deed never finished,
this sad persons glory,
has finally deminished.

I think the phrase, "a victim to society" sums up about 99% of suicides in the world. Expectations overwhelm. Life can be difficult to swallow when your thoughts are continuously being molded by robots. Perversely enough, I like the way you think. Not that condone suicide, but through appreciation of your message.

And there are people who care. Immaturity and fear sometimes mask them, but they exist.
