Dedicated to my brother who commited suicide:

Standing on this ledge. Mixed emotions turning about. I'm right on the edge. I'm tired of the doubt. Nobody understands me. In a crowd of people I shout. Nobody listened when I said this is my only route. Nobody seemed to care. I guess I'm just a waste of air! Everyone seems so happy and content. Its not fair! I can't even vent!!! Those who do listen don't know what to say. Or they say all the wrong things. With their words they slay not knowing the hurt it brings. "Suck it up; we all struggle; stop being worthless your life is a mess"! They dont understand me! I'm sorry Ive caused so much stress!!! I just wish I could be heard...really heard! I'm sorry this seems so absurd! I've tried to pull myself together but its hard when I feel so alone. I'm broken! I can't do this on my own! Since nobody wants to help me I'll just move along. One more step to the edge and I'll be gone.

    So tragic🦋too many instances like this People on the verge should not be chastised Or judged- little talk and positive encouragement for life may help If there is Talk and writing about intentions - that can be a reaching out for help It is a bitterly tough situation So sorry for your loss🦋🦋🦋

  • Meagan, I know U R having a difficult time w/ the loss of UR brother. We always wish that there was something we could have done, some way we could have helped, could have heard, could have reached out to the hopelessness he felt...2 B able 2 give them a shread of the value that we see N their struggle...alass, it could not B done...I don't think that anyone commits suicide unless they truely believe that they don't have anywhere else 2 go. It's tragic 4 all, such a great loss.
