by Lakesha Jenkins

Today I've decided to kill myself
Oh not all of me just some of me
You know, the pieces that no longer feel like they belong to me
The 1s that have led to bad decisions & mismatched connections, 
soul ties & eyes that only know how to cry
The 1s the hold me back instead of pushing me forward
The parts that I've torn & broken on my way to today
And the pieces that won't do me any good tomorrow
Maybe I'll shoot me up
Or perhaps I'll cut me up
Or maybe I should consider just burning me up
Wait...won't that hurt too much?...hmmm.
Maybe I'll hire a hitman to do
God give me strength to go through with it
I have to do something while there's still time & 
I'm not too old cause I've given all my youth to it
Oh the irony
Me ending me...
Or maybe I'm just a coward
A procrastinator who'll put off the necessary another day
Which is how I got here in the 1st place
Trying to take control of my fate
Even if I means I have to kill ME
