       I wrote this one right after a friend of mine committed suicide.

    I try the best I can to get over this depression
    It seems to do no good, at least thatís my impression
    I feel the same way every day no matter what I do
    I need to shake this feeling off, that I know is true

    I donít know how much longer I can stand the pain
    I have too many thoughts running through my brain
    I canít seem to get them straight no matter what I try
    Another friend just killed himself, and nobody knows why

    I didnít think he had it bad, at least compared to me
    Must have been something that no one else could see
    He had a temporary problem but used a permanent solution
    Now there is no way he can ever get absolution

    But thatís the way it is sometimes, Iíll never understand
    Why some people choose to end it all with their own hand
    I know that things in life can suck this I know for sure
    But taking your own life sure is not the cure

    Oh, I have considered it, at least a time or two
    Most people have, they just donít carry through
    Some just write poetry for everyone to see
    You have to do what it takes to set your mind free

    Every day you hear about it, there was another suicide
    Itís too late to help someone after they already died
    Always try to be the one thatís there for all your friends
    Maybe you could be the one to talk to before it ends

    I know how it feels when you are so all alone
    Nobody around to talk to, not even on the phone
    So I write these depressing poems to get the feelings out
    Sometimes driving down the road I have to scream and shout

    Just read the words I write, you will understand
    Things donít always turn out just the way you planned
    But your life can go on; sure youíll feel some pain
    But it sure beats the hell out of a bullet in the brain

    Time will heal all your wounds, just hang on to see
    Eventually you will heal thatís what they tell me
    So Iím hanging on, going from day to day
    Because in all reality ÖÖ.I just want to stay

    In Memory of Steven ďSuper SnaĒ Scinocca, 1959-2006

      I am truely sorry about your friend. suicide is a hard thing to have to deal with. i love how you used at least some of the pain not only to write an amazing poem, but to shed light on the fact that suicide is defently not the way, and to help others the best you can.

      I'm so sorry about ur friend, I couldnt even imagine how hard that must be to have a friend do that.

    "You have to do what it takes to set your mind free"

    is very true. Whether it be poetry, or music, or anything else that doesnt involve hurting urself. But its hard sometimes...and its hard to understand how people can go thru with suicide even. Just need to stay and hang in there no matter what life throws at you
