Taken from Wikipedia

Suicide (from Latin sui caedere, to kill oneself) is the act of willfully ending one's own life. Suicide is sometimes used as a noun for one who has committed or attempted the act.



I would truthfully say that people that commit suicide are cowards. Why? Because they commit suicide when they do not want to face the world. They are afraid to face the consequences of what they had done. Or what they imagine would be the results of their actions. Or when they feel that their pain are bigger than life itself.

Then, there are people that tried to commit suicide as a form to get attention, "cry for help" if you want to call it. For these people, please, please, let us help you. Do not be stubborn and try to deny what your subconcious mind had already acknowledged. You ARE sick and required help.

Just a question, do you think that when you die, would your family rejoice? Or your friends celebrate?

Usual scenario is that the family WOULD spiral into depression. Sometimes other members of the family would also commit suicide, from the depression and guilt caused by their inability to foresee and change the history. Your friends would also be changed forever. Not to say the community where the suicide occurs. The pain WOULD grow larger, enveloping many more people. Is this what you want? To cause more life and souls to be lost?

Don't let me start on the religious angle. All of the religions in the world prohibit suicide. Please inform me if you find one that say God would like it if you kill yourself. For a Muslim, Allah would even reject their souls and forever they would be in Hell. An eternity of loss for what? Stupid choice, I would say.

I come from a broken family. I am the eldest child so the responsibility of the whole family falls on me. In addition, I need to ensure that I provide excellent example to be followed by my sisters.

Yes, I had thought of suicide many times in the past. But, I also think of all the people that would be affected by my cowardice.

So, I swim. I swim like hell. I fought with my claws and teeth to make sure that I graduated from university and my sisters get good, no, best educations that I can offer. I fought all the people and my community to ensure that no one would look askance at my mother, that she can look other people in the eye and say, even tho she is a widow, her brood excels. I fought to make sure that they got all the comforts in the world.

Think, if I commit suicide, if I lose faith and give in to my cowardice, what would happen to my family?

Someone once said that I am a swimmer. Yes my dear, I would say that I am.

I beg, if anyone of you do feel the compulsion to die, commit suicide, let go of life.... please ask for help. All is not lost. There are numerous things yet to be done, that can't be done if you die.

As for me, I live for the moment. I loved so that people know that they are loved. And if my God asked me to go tonite, these people can live with the knowledge that they are loved, and there is nothing nicer in the world than the knowledge that someone loves you.


My prayer with all of us.

The race of man shall perish, but the eyes
Of trilobytes eternal in stone,
And seem to stare about in mild surprise
At changes greater than they have yet known.
- T.A. Conrad


To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.
- William Blake,
excerp from Auguries of Innocence.
