Do you ever feel like someone, or something, is following you. Listening to every word you say, watching every glace you make. Have you ever considered the light? It’s coming from everywhere, it bends around corners in sharp angles and finds you while you’re on a highly classified spy mission getting some late night ice cream. Or maybe it will find you while your playing hide-and-seek, or just as you wake up it will visit you and leave an idea in your head… asking you “Have you considered the light?”
Your eyes are blue and brown with flecks of yellow, and I can feel their gaze in the pit of my stomache. The blue of your eyes is so clear I feel like I can see into you. I’m not hungry anymore all I can feel in my stomache is your eyes, there’s no room for hunger. Those little things seem stupid now.
-Listen closely now.
Lift you head up towards the sky,
do you hear the birds?
-Stand tall like the tree,
but do not let your limbs sway.
Please be strong for me.
-You pick a flower,
pull it away from the ground,
and watch as it dies.
A blogger that I follow (actually used to follow) wrote a post* explaining why he “[found] it hard for [him] to mourn those who resort to suicide. No one should mourn such selfish people. Life is tough for each and everyone of us but yet we’re still here. How bad could life possibly have been for you that suicide was the only solution”. First of all FUCK YOU. Do you know anything about self harm, suicidal people, or depression. Reading this actually made me feel sick. Can you imagine how triggering this post could be for someone that was suicidal, since he obviously knows nothing about the subject he wouldn’t know that this could put someone over the edge. I just find it hard to believe that someone could be so insensitive, and ignorant. Some people believe that all publicity is good publicity, obviously this blogger just wanted attention and reactions. All and all, this post was immature, ignorant, uninformed, and hurtful. I am truly offended.
*I believe the post has since been deleted.
I wish people had to take a test in order to raise children, and if you didn’t pass you couldn’t raise them.
