Did you really think,
That taking the cowards way out,
Would prove anything,
Except all of our worst fears?

Did you even think,
About the ones that you have now?
And the pain that you'd bring,
If you were to leave them all here...?

Do you really think,
You're life is just so horribly unbearable,
That you need to take this knife,
And do something you know is terrible?!

How many times,
Have I told you it isn't worth it?
How selfish of you,
To expect your life to be picture perfect.

I can somewhat agree with your point of view, this is a great piece, but i dont think this would help a suicidal personat all if not make it a bit worse, thats coming from experiance, I have attempted it before and seriosly thought about it recently. I still like this, its avery good piece of work.

I don't think that this would help anyone who is contemplating suicide. The feel I get from this is that someone is speaking into a situation where they do not have full knowledge. What people who are close to suicide really need is someone to make them feel that they are worth life. Calling someone selfish for struggling so much with life that they would even think of ending it is not fair to that person, it would (most likely) cause them to feel worse. This keeps making me think of someone who wants to help but really doesn't know the best way.

It isn't fair for the person to even think about ending their life without trying to find proper help first. It isn't fair that they feel that way in the first place. It's not fair to anybody.Life just isn't fair. So in a way, it is selfish of them. Everybody walks through hell at one point or another. If they're not brave enough to face their problems or issues head on, and they resort to this tragic course of action, then yes. That alone justifies this piece. Now, please, I do not mean to come off as harsh or anything, I'm very thankful for your honest opinion on my work <3 much appreciated, my good person.

I agree with you. Life is unfair and your piece speaks truth. Suicide is just the easy, dumb, and selfish way out of a problem. Nothing in life is easy. We can't just give up. I have depression and I have had thoughts of suicide many times before, but I never once tried to commit suicide because, in my opinion, only the cowards, stupid, and selfish people try it. I am not a coward, stupid, nor selfish. I am smart, fearless, and I love my friends and family. If I were to write a piece on suicide, it would sound a lot like Invoking 's piece. This is from the POV of a person with depression that will never give up and will face whatever life throws at her.

I'm sorry to hear you've felt as such before, or perhaps still do. One can never truly put those feelings away... I am glad you have the same view as me, as you appear to be one of few. Thank you for your support, my good person, and I wish you the best of luck <3
