Suicide is a selfish act.....totally against what I believe. To be selfish and kill yourself is a slap in the face to your loved ones. Its a cowardly act. For anyone to commit such an act is pathetic in my opinion.
This poem was written by a young girl who committed suicide. Perhaps if the people surrounding her had shown a little more love, and had paid more attention to her, her death could have been prevented. Remember that when going through life, you can't judge a sad, lonely, or suicidal person by their facial expression. You need to get to know each person you come in contact with, cherish your friendship with them, and show them that you care.

What I would like to know is, what for you would make life not worth carrying on with anymore?
Can you ever imagine a point where you would consider suicide as an option, or do you believe that it is never an option however bad life is?
Have you ever been at the point of considering ending your life and if so what made you decide not to go through with it, fear if the unknown, thinking of the people you would leave behind?
Would religion play any part in you making a decision like that and if so, how?

When you die.
That's kind of a paradox, unless you can timeslip and tell yourself you are going to die, so just pull the plug.
ANyway I wanted to bump this topic, I feel it's important, as there are many who are just stubbornly set in their prejudgements.
