"When trouble comes up anywhere in the world, they don’t call Beijing, they don’t call Moscow. They call us…when there’s a typhoon in the Philippines, take a look at who is helping the Philippines deal with that situation. When there is an earthquake in Haiti, take a look at who is leading the charge, making sure Haiti can rebuild. That’s how we roll. And that’s what makes us America." —President Obama on 60 Minutes
Out of booze, out of robo, out of pills
Tonight will be another filled with chills
This life I live isn’t pretty – it kills
And if you’ve ever talked with my kind,
You know the rule to getting high..
Need to get too high, have a wacky spin,
Only way to escape this life we’ve been given.
Fucking calm feels like hell
Quiet gives me the chills
Must find my safe place – it’s hiding in a Over dose of prescription pills
The Benadryl is trippy if you take 7
A nighmare out of the abyss
Add some nutmeg and some unknown shit I was given
End up drinking too much water and burn pissing
Shit the high is going away….. can’t face reality
I know I know, I know quit, but I need it now, where is the
You hid it on me?!
Thank god I got this paint to huff
Got a rag here to put over aerosol bottles and get some dust-off
Sleeping pills don’t make you sleep if you have coffee
Maybe I should take 4, fuck it, 8 it is
Now I’ll have visuals, I just hope this time I don’t scream
pain to me Is bliss pain to me is a gift
pain is the only way out of this shit
when I’ve lost my mind
the paranoia guy, goes bye bye
and my mind is the only one reading my mind with nobody
else taking a peak inside
the times I’ve felt safest are when I’m sitting on the sidewalk stoned out my mind crying with my head down
the devil backs off, I’m aloud to just pout, I don’t have
to shout, this this this this is my pain and I did it to
When I’m at a low, that’s when I’m at the safest
I live in the world alone by my own rules
But I know enough to know what safe is
I haven’t given up, but I see no way to change this.
She grew up different than others.
Knowing her own strength and intellect,
Allowed her to sit in the sky with the stars.
Her mistakes she’d hold to a mirror, watching reflect
So she too bound her own scars.
She partied with the best,
She partied with the worst.
She loved nights of no rest
She was so straight, she could have carried a
She never played the blame game,
Nor did she judge.
She preached people are the same,
And they all need love.
… But she is a monster simply because she exists.
-that’s what they all tell her; and she knows they’re right-
I think the saddest people always try their hardest to make people happy
because they know what it’s like to feel absolutely worthless
and they don’t want anyone else to feel like that.

today, my school hosted an exhibit for suicide awareness day. the exhibit included 1,100 backpacks in representation of the number of lives that are lost to mental illness each year on college campuses. many of these backpacks were donated by the families that lost loved ones and had their stories attached. i’m so proud of my school for bringing attention to such a serious issue.
