Teenage Girl In Pain

I'm sat on the edge of my life
clinging onto the memorys that are full of happiness
the ones that could stop me from ending it..........
my family seem to confince me that I shouldnt do it
but the truth is
there driving me to it......
I feel as though I'm in a war
which I cannot resolve
she wants me to hate him
he wants me to hate her
they want me to pick a side
they dont even know that
what there doing is tearing me apart
I can't sleep cause I think of what they would do in my nightmares
i can't even be social cause I break down in tears
why do i have to be the sponge to mop up her tears
I don't want to be a rag doll being pulled side to side...
she want me to be this
he wants me to be that
what do I want? ?
what am I?
who have I become?
I don't want to hide my pain
from the people i love...
but i cant tell them for it will cause them worry
so i keep it bottled up which means
i have a break down making it worse.
i dont wanna cry any more..................

    typical teen feelings, i can relate. try not to keep things bottled up, it just makes things worse. maybe you can tell them how bad things are for you? writing is always a help too. don't just end your life, its a waste of everything for you and most likely everyone that loves you.
    Hope things get better for you soon

    i love this poem..i hits so close to home..the more they pull..the more the push you hurts more and more..and the hardest things is to keep it bottled up..and its also the worst thing..and its sucks when all of your pain is from them that you endure..but the best thing you can do is find inner strength..don't mean to try and be the optimist but in actuality it works..but writing is the best way to vent i if you can't tell them..i guess in a way thats why we're here..

    I agree with Doc on this one, very sad that young adults are forced to sometimes make a decision between two people that they love. I dont agree with the keeping it bottled up inside, maybe if you told them what they are doing to you then, and only maybe then would they realize just how much pain that they are putting you thru. Ending your life, will not solve the problem. That would be like putting gas on a fire. Although you would not have to deal with the issues at hand anymore, the ones that truly love and care for you would be devastated by your actions.
    I truley hope that this is just a poem and not reality.
    If it is reality, Please reach out to someone.
