The GIFT of life & teenage suicide.

The GIFT of life & teenage suicide.

I learned that a beautiful,
gifted, kind-hearted, loving,
intelligent young girl I know & love,
took a handful of pills
in an attempt to end her life.
Visions of her as a spunky, naive, sweet, little girl,
with her beautiful hair, pretty pink lips,
and happy heart, constantly smiling
keep rolling through my mind.
All she wants in this huge overbearing, desensitized world
is to be seen, wanted, LOVED.
But her world consists of uncertainty
false friendships, and damaging choices.
And while faces come and go,
she has lost her sense of worth so completely.
And all I keep thinking is if only I could tell her a secret.
If only I could whisper to her
so that she could feel my words like a gift of life.
If only she understood that she is somebody’s baby.
That she’s somebody’s sister, cousin, niece, grandbaby.
That she is loved more than there are words in language.
Her life, which was once wrapped up inside a womb
is now wrapped up inside hearts & souls
which are being ripped into pieces for fear
of losing a part of them that gives life to their very core.
Everyone is someone’s baby.
YOU are JUST a baby.
Choose to see how there JUST is NO option to take your own life.
Your life was a gift.
And you can make it beautiful
because you have that choice.

Listening to the words in Cold Play’s “Fix You” yesterday, I found myself so, so sad for this sweet girl & her mum. I went to YouTube, to grab it and use it in this post, and when searching it, I stumbled into this cover (above). It reminded me of her gift of song. Sing girl! You have no idea what you are capable of. Dream HUGE, and work hard to make your dreams come true. You can do ANYTHING you CHOOSE. The universe is yours. LIVE the life that empowers the sweetness inside your beautiful heart. Please.

love, always, jules
