The suicidal girl and the mean guy

Why tell people in advance?
Do you want them to feel guilt?
For not loving you, listening to you?
Why hurt them? Revenge?
Yes, the world has hurt you,
It can be cold and mean.
So you do have the power
to make a lot of people feel guilt.
You want to leave the world, hurting people?

So you weren’t loved as a child, 
a lot of us weren’t. When you grow up
you learn it is not about others loving us,
it is about the love we give others.
You cant make the world love you, 
but you can bring love into the world. 
That’s why you have a heart. 

Every major religion agrees suicide is bad for the soul
In the west, we call it purgatory,
you sit alone, in a dark place, and feel,
you feel guilt, shame, hurt, and loss.
God isn’t there, the angels aren’t there
It’s more alone than you are now,
feeling 1000 times worst,
and the only thing you can do is feel it,
go into the emotions and purge them
until you are capable of loving again,
giving love to others, that is.
Only, then can you even be near an angel or god.
A soul with no love, cannot even be in God’s presence.
That is why purgatory exists, to purify a soul of its selfishness

Here is your cure, 
Go help some people worse off than you.
Look into their eyes, feel their suffering,
share theirs with them, listen to their pain,
radiate love to them, be quiet and listen
As you give to them, you heal.....

Write poems of how you feel, 
your life experiences, stop writing suicide stuff...
Take your pain and put it into the art,
go deep, make yourself cry. 
If the poem doesn’t hurt you, it’s not deep enough. 
Write some on beauty that make you feel it..

Pray for the planet and all the people in pain
Imagine your heart glowing love, healing it all.

Forgive everyone that has hurt you.
Anger will burn a hole in your heart. 

Face your fears, go out in the world
heal it, make it a better place

This is your mission here..............

    Michael~ I agree with you its a moment of selfishness anyone that has had those moments know that's what it is. I myself have shared in that disease of self. Your advice is great and truly inspiring, for some people it takes longer than others to see that light. Pray for Gods light and peace! Well said great write! Laura :)

    I do not see it as a weakness, i see them as the most evolved, and closest to god. They are given a great opportunity to feel emotions at a greater depth than most people. That is a skill that can be used to teach others how they feel but are unaware of. They are the healers, the artists, if they can couple their emotions with love for others.

    Suicide is seen as a weakness by many, Michael. But what of those, like myself, that believe death is merely an obstacle? I ate a bottle of pills, cut my wrists, drank myself into a coma... But i lived. I'm still kickin'. 3 times i knocked on heavens door and 3 times GOD said "Get the hell outta here! I didn't call you!" It's hard to change a mindset most of us are born into... some of us never get 2nd and 3rd chances. Concerning your write: "Write poems of how you feel," I truely agree with u
