Too Busy To Die

Written by Anonymous

There are days when I wish I were dead.

Lately too many days when I feel this way.

I don’t know what to do to feel better.

I feel over-whelmed about all my responsibilities.

I need help but there is no one to help me.

I am the one who handles everything.

I feel guilty when I think about the chaos I would leave behind.

I wonder if I should get things in order before I go?

I think about how and when.

I can’t tell anyone how I feel because

I am too busy to die.
