Suicide

But Before You Leave

We all have experiences we struggle to put into words. Whether that be heartbreak, loss, mourning, or internal battles, it’s a common theme among all of us as humans.

When I woke up in the hospital, one of my first thoughts was “Damn. It didn’t work.” Then, after seeing, hugging and crying with my friends and family members, a new thought began to take hold. Each day, it grew a little stronger. And, as it grew stronger, I began to listen to it more. This new, fledgling thought was simple – “I want to live.”

It’s funny how some band, an assortment of people that you’ve never even met before, can put the emotions you’ve been feeling into words that you couldn’t have formed yourself. They don’t know you or the situation you’re going through, and yet, they found a way to explain it perfectly.
