Time for change


Kids are dying
Younger and younger
By their own hand
They're being pushed to the edge
And they can't return
They feel alone
And helpless
And have no where to go
How many kids have to die
Before we make a change?
Before suicide isn't a taboo subject?
Before it is no longer seen as a selfish move?
I am tired of hearing about the 17 year old who hung herself
The 14 year old that shot himself
The 11 year old in the hospital after ingesting too much tylenol.
Can't the world see that this becoming an epidemic?
How about we start caring before these kids are lying In coffins, surrounded by loved ones constantly asking themselves why.
