I Don’t Want To Be Alive (Poem)

 

 

I don’t want to be alive, because I don’t know, what to do with my life,

Evidently it seems, I’m not good enough, at the only thing I’m any good at.

Poetry is therapy, but I want my music to be my profession or at least garner attention.

Yes I want your attention, I want you to like me, teach me to love me.

 

I don’t want to be alive because everything hurts and I always feel empty.

I don’t want to be alive because I will never have a family.

I don’t want to be alive because I can never feel loved, so I cant be happy.

I don’t want to be alive because I will never have enough control.

 

I don’t want to be alive because when I go, I’ll be gone and you’ll forget.

I don’t want to be alive because my suicidal ideation has become boring.

I don’t want to be alive because I’ve lost a place to call home.

I don’t want to be alive because I feel like nothing, so I should be nothing.
