Can Anybody Hear Me?
The pain is too hard
For me to bear
I'm drowning in a pool
Of my own despair
Can anybody hear?
Can anybody hear?
Can anybody hear?
Me crying
My dreams are too vivid
And too clear
The things he did to me
Are now my fears
Can anybody hear?
Can anybody hear?
Can anybody hear?
Me screaming
I cannot control
The flow of my tears
The picture in the mirror
Is no longer clear
Can anybody hear?
Can anybody hear?
Can anybody hear?
The glass breaking
The pounding of my heart
Is beyond compare
I feel in my soul
The end is near
Can anybody hear?
Can anybody hear?
Can anybody hear?
Me falling, falling, falling
......can anybody

What is suicide?
Suicide is the process of purposely ending one's own life. The way societies view suicide varies widely according to culture and religion. For example, many Western cultures, as well as mainstream Judaism, Islam, and Christianity tend to view killing oneself as quite negative. One myth about suicide that may be the result of this view is considering suicide to always be the result of a mental illness. Some societies also treat a suicide attempt as if it were a crime. However, suicides are sometimes seen as understandable or even honorable in certain circumstances, such as in protest to persecution (for example, hunger strike), as part of battle or resistance (for example, suicide pilots of World War II; suicide bombers) or as a way of preserving the honor of a dishonored person (for example, killing oneself to preserve the honor or safety of family members). Nearly 1 million people worldwide commit suicide each year, with anywhere from 10 million to 20 million suicide attempts annually. About 30,000 people reportedly kill themselves each year in the United States. The true number of suicides is likely higher because some deaths that were thought to be an accident, like a single-car accident, overdose, or shooting, are not recognized as being a suicide. Suicide is the eighth leading cause of death in males and the 16th leading cause of death in females. The higher frequency of completed suicides in males versus females is consistent across the life span. In the United States, boys 10-14 years of age commit suicide twice as often as their female peers. Teenage boys 15-19 years of age complete suicide five times as often as girls their age, and men 20-24 years of age commit suicide 10 times as often as women their age. Gay, lesbian, and other sexual minority youth are more at risk for thinking about and attempting suicide than heterosexual teens. Suicide is the third leading cause of death for people 10-24 years of age. Teen suicide statistics for...
