“I cherish the fact that my suicide attempt isn’t associated with my name
even if ‘wannabe’ is.
I would rather be called a ‘try hard’
than my entire grade know
I have cut myself.
See they wish I was just a ‘wannabe’,
a ‘try hard’
I am so past that.
My emotions have evolved into something so much more significant than an attempt,
someone who could have been.
The names that they call me are not worthy to describe what I have become.
I want to be called a tsunami
a lighting bolt
Because I am not someone who could have been something.
I am something and I,
I will not ‘wannabe’ something;
I will be.”—Lindsay Brooke- They pray for the day I will not be (via siqhing)
