    Im trapped in this body
    Raging to come out,
    Theres words in my mind
    That I do need to shout.

    I want to leave this world
    Yet I want to survive,
    Im facing so much pain
    Yet Im still here alive.

    The hurt and the suffering
    Taunting my mind,
    Im lost and Im broken
    Its me I cannot find.

    My mind is really puzzled
    Can I really survive,
    But Ive come this far already
    And Im still here alive.

    There is some part of me
    That doesn't want to go,
    So I need to stay strong
    And take each day quite slow.

    My mind is just a battle
    Deciding to survive,
    But so far I succeed
    As Im still here alive.

    This feeling within me
    Is so overwhelming,
    I need some direction
    Like a boat that needs helming.

    I need to stay focused
    I need to survive,
    I cannot give up
    I need to stay alive.

    Grasping that control
    Over my mind,
    Only then its possible
    That myself I will find.

    I just want to die
    Yet I want to survive,
    So let my mind battle
    Because right now Im alive!

    Im still here today
    And hopefully tomorrow,
    I need to look ahead
    And hold back the sorrow.

    I will try to SURVIVE
    I will find the strength,
    I will try to be ALIVE,
    I will give my life more length!

    - I don't know if this poem even makes sense to you all, but just reading this over makes me realise how confused I am and how much my mind battles in deciding whether to take my own life or not! Part of me wants to because of the pain and I feel beyond help, but there's a part of me that just doesn't want to!
