Step one, you say, We need to talk.
He walks, you say, Sit down. It’s just a talk.
He smiles politely back at you
You stare politely right on through
Some sort of window to your right
As he goes left and you stay right
Between the lines of fear and blame
You begin to wonder why you came

Where did I go wrong? I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life



  1. January 13, 2011. Life changing day. I lost my father. Not to cancer, or age. But to a illness. The illness is depression. My father killed him self and left behind me, my sister, and my drug- addicted mother. I had to move in with my nana, I witnessed my parents passed out on the couches everyday from overdoses. I lost my father to suicide and it killed me. I still miss him. Dear any depressed, or suicidal person, just think. You may want to be taken from this world, be killed or to kill yourself, but do you realize how much that kills someone else? Ruins someone else’s life? How much they will miss you? You could cause 1 2 maybe even 3 or more deaths. People could miss you so bad, that they become depressed and kill themselves. I know it’s an illness that hard to control but trust me my friend, there are people you can talk to, you on,y have one life and trust me, you wanna live it. You want to take the chances you never thought you would take, go skydiving, ask out that one girl. Marry that one girl. That one guy. Grow up to have a beautiful family, look forward to it, and think, how would that family feel? You’ll be ok. There are people here for you.

    Just gonna leave this here..
    Love all of you, just please don’t do it. 💚💚

  4. Pour pouvoir sauver quelqu'un, il faudrait déjà être capable de se sauver soi-même. Moi, j'en suis sincèrement incapable, et je crois dur comme fer que de toute façon, pour pourvoir sauver quoi que ce soit, il faut pouvoir y croire. I hope someday i'll wake up with my dreams being accomplished, looking back behind me and realizing that the worst is now stuck in my past, but I'm afraid this will never happens, and I'm starting losing hope about it. I wish life was simplier, and being in a position to save someone, being in a position in which i'd be the hero, but I'm just a stupid retard who loses his faith and starts crumbling because. It comes to my mind that I'll have to change what I want andwhat I am, to achieve an happier state, and this kills me, I can't save myself, and I won't even be able to save my true myself in order to save my future, what I don't want to have anymore.
