Tell me, did you fall for a shooting star?
One without a permanent scar?
And did you miss me when you were looking for yourself out there?

Risk it all, cause I'll catch you if you fall.

Uhmm, in the second quarter of 7th grade year. I believe I was 12 at the time.


You're only as tall as your heart will let you be
And you're only as small as the world will make you seem
When the going gets rough and you feel like you may fall
Just look on the brightside - you're roughly six feet tall

At the age of 12 I was actually thinking about killing myself. Before that I can remember wishing I could just "disappear" and that "I shouldn't have been born".

I first thought about it in 7th grade, after I failed a math test, as silly as that sounds. But it wasn't serious- I would've never pulled it off. I was too afraid to hurt myself.

In 8th grade, I felt sad because I was incredibly lonely during the winter, and since it didn't snow, there was no reason for me to come outside. I was getting in a fight with my best friend, and my grades were dropping. Everything got better by the end of the year, thankfully.

But I was really starting to think about suicide when I was 15 in 10th grade. My depression reached its peak from November through May. I was really tormented by my classmates back then...

I got better over the summer and I'm doing okay for the moment. That could change at any moment, though.

I was 8 when I first thought about it and thought how 'great' it would be to just disappear.

I didn't really start making plans in my head until I was around 15.

I hope this answered your question and good luck with the essay.

I know for sure i was 10 when i tried to commit suicide and was thinking about it that fateful day.

So basickly i didnt start thinking about it until the day i tried to kill myself.
I became very depressed and suicidle all from Kids that bullied me everyday and every minute. they hurt me verbally and physically. It was terrible.
I would never go threw it again inless if that was the only way to somehow get to where i am (:
I tried to kill myself at least 52 times so far im pretty sure.


Met you from a tie between u and me buddy,
Saw you from my wired eyes with a twisted little lie, and my mind told me negative when i had a wish to own you with my heart, buddy and you split like twigs, senses told her i fell for him, and she told me "i loved him, and go get him" And while i said "negative he said "correct" <3


Me and ? = 3 days which =correct

Well I first thought about it when I was about 5 or 6. I had a very short temper and thought I was a bad kid. I seriously considered a method but chickened out.

I think that I started to constantly think about it seriously when I was 10. It was at this point that I decided that if there was any way I would die, it would be on my own accord.

The first time I tried I think I was seven or eight.

But the first time I thought about it...

I don't even think I had started Kindergarten. I just wished I hadn't been born.

I can't exactly remember but I think it was around 10 or so, I used to write about it in a journal I had. I started to seriously consider it again at 15. Thats really sad, as I'm looking at everyones answers, we were all so young.

I hope your essay goes well!

But everything that lives is born to die
And so I say to you that nothing really matters
And all you do is stand and cry.
