To Understand

I understand why…

Why people do what they do

When the desperation takes over

And the hope begins to wane.

Self loathing grows

Confidence disappears

Living a life that’s no longer your own

Everything turns to despair.

It’s not a cry for attention

Nor is it a cry for help

In the end it’s relief of the burden of being oneself

I pray you never learn this.
