My Little Sister Devin
Author: Ryan


my friends tell me they care
i know they care
but im not sure if i care enough about anything to stop
i just dont want devin to grow up 1 brother short
i feel the need to kill myself but then i stop and think of her
i see her smile when i feel like cutting and it makes me stop
as i put the blade to my wrist i see her little smile in my head
makes me think wow i have a amazing sister
and if i die i wont be there to experence her grow up
as i start to tear i see that beautiful smile
once she is old enough to understand how many times shes saved me
i will repay her with my life i will let her read this poem and see what she says
i would have never thought i beautiful little girl would save me from killin myself
i would and will do anything for her even if it means going to jail
i sometimes wonder if she thinks what i think
i can see into her beautiful eyes
how much she loves me even though shes only 19 months old

Thoughts of suicide had crossed my mind a while back, although i knew in my heart i would never be able to do anything like to myself, because of my love for my family and my love for god. But when i was depressed enough to think something like that the first face that popped into my head was my lil brothers....he's 4. I couldnt imagine leaving him that way, just giving up on what i could experience with him. There were also times that i wanted to just leave home and not come back for a while...but then again i saw his face and didnt want to miss the new things he would learn to do. And now i have a pretty hard choice to make and the only thing i see is his face.
Awesome hard heart hitting poem!!

family loves you

I once thought about suicide but everytime i tried to do i felt selfish when ithought about my family who loves me and how they would hurt if i was no longer here

Very smart

That was a sweet poem from the heart. Your little sister is trulyblessed to have a brother who cares about her like you do. Now I know why God blesses us with family members....she has a special place in your life and I can tell that you will have a very special place in hers as well.....
