selfless

they say it is wrong to end your life-

that all you would bring is pain to those around 

but isn't that selfish of those people to say? 

to say youre selfish for ending your suffering because they would hurt?

isn't it a sin to be selfish?

he told me weak people end their lives.

call me weak; I don't want to suffer anymore. 

I'm tired of being strong for people to judge me when im weak every now and then. 

you could be a millionare; in the end, we die. 

what does it matter? 

death should not be a sad thing- 

a sad thing is that of torture. 

imagine living in a world with very high standards; disgusting people. 

a world with limited resources if you do not have a certain high amount of currency. 

a life of living so uncomfortable because everyone you know is judging you on your shoes alone. 

judging you by the shape of your body; the model of your car. 

what is that to you- life? 

please do not tell me it is life.

    I know when I was younger I felt the same as you. But now that I have my own child, it's different. I guess I never had parents to miss me.....but I don't know what your situation is and I don't want to bring religion into it. But I'm guessing you are a friend, and many things to many people. Thanks for sharing your post.

    It certainly is not my life Mr Poet. The pains associated with suicide would be greatly reduced were there to be left a suitable suicide note written by a thoughtful hand such as your own.

    Suicide requires courage. To look at the unknown in the face, and accept it is probably the most courageous thing a person could do - aside from giving their life for someone else in a situational effort, and all that. But is suicide right? That's not for anyone else to say. I'm glad there are other people out there that understand it. Best of luck to you.
