[Licy Be – Youth Suicide]
I wanted to die, sometimes I still do. Cos I don’t fit in this world, just as much as a monkey doesn’t really belong in a zoo. God, I got my secretes, your about the only one who sees, some things I still struggle with and I’m told to just believe that it will be ok, well that’s easy for some to say when they don’t have a clue what’s going on. You can’t just take a pill, say a prayer and expect this to be gone. These battles are mine, they’re tied to my soul, the heaviest weight around my neck and they are out of my control! I can’t stand it when others play my game, they come along and try to act like they know my pain, I just brush them off and let them go their way, act like its all sweet and I’ll see you another day. Anything to get rid of those that are reaching out, cos they can’t help me if they can’t understand my fears and my doubts, and I doubt that I could truly change, like the colour of my skin, or fix this broken world that I be living in. But is this really the problem, this thing that I’m focusing on, this pain and its source has been there for so long I don’t even remember where it began, it’s like I’ve been broken since Adam was the first man. But this ain’t the way things are meant to be young people lost hope and don’t believe that they can be someone, someone great, if you got air in your lungs today, you are not a mistake.
But for many its too late, because each year nearly one million people die of suicide, yet we hide so that we don’t see those that are down, dejected, rejected, depressed, disheartened, and neglected each day. Did you know those who are gay or struggle with their sexual identity are more likely to be suicidal and feel empty? Same goes for those that come from broken homes, parents gone, kids left alone, 5 year olds, 6, 7 and mummy and daddy have gone to heaven, or being picked on at school, given so much that its passed just not being cool, or the money, when you’re living below the poverty line, or health has gone and your running out of time, or you think there’s no reason for your life, being abused day and night by some guy that thinks he has the right, and these are only a few of the reasons our young people choose to refuse living life, now this just ain’t right.
Young people die of suicide in Australia every year, that’s over 10,000 in the last 5 years, can anybody hear? That could be your loved one, your neighbor friend son, if 10,000 young people thought death was the only way out, then I’m sure there’s 10,000 more we can reach before this year out. But it doesn’t stop there, these stat’s are only a spec of dust on a global sphere with a million suicides a year there’s also an attempted suicide every 3 seconds, that means that with nearly every breath you take today, someone else will be attempting to take theirs away.
Why do we accept these stats and label them as facts? Why don’t we confront what we see and turn youth suicide into history. And they say that suicide has reached an all time high world wide, well I say suicide should never be listed as one the top killers in any society, and I ain’t finished, I want to see suicide diminished because this is wrong on so many levels, yet we seem more concerned about societal rebels and putting those in line that commit crimes, what about the blood that’s on our own hands? How can we stand for what is right and not fight for the very lives that are being taken see we have mistaken our mission, selfishly setting our life goals around increasing our commission, you don’t need permission to clear your mind, heart eyes and vision so that you can clearly see other people around you. Does what I’m saying confound you? Well if it does Ima say it straight, so that you get that there’s no debate over the fact that we are already running late to help someone who’s down and out, because 40 seconds ago someone just died of suicide, and 5 will have gone from the start to the end of this song. And I’m gunna continue even though your feeling awkward and squirming in your seat, because this ain’t the kind of thing where you can just turn off your TV and hope that it will go away, na ah, 3000 people die each day, because people like you and I just look away.
