    What do you do when you don't want to live?
    When you can't bear to face just one more day?
    When you've given all that you have to give?
    What do you do when death is the best way?

    They say I'm only thinking about me,
    That I don't care about those left behind,
    But I know better--my death sets them free,
    For suicide destroys all ties that bind.

    This is not either-or; it is both-and.
    It isn't about either them or me.
    Everyone benefits from what I've planned;
    This will be best, although they don't agree.

    What do you do when you don't want to live?
    When you can't bear to face just one more day?
    When there's only one thing more you can give
    You take your life and so give it away.
