This is the end. I'm Sorry.

A poem about wanting to end your life, but at the same time not.

This is the end. I'm Sorry.

(Trigger Warning: suicide, depression)

This is a sestina style poem that I wrote describing a rather difficult time in my life. I was really depressed and I thought that the only thing that was going to fix it was taking my life. I didn't want to be alive anymore, but at the same time, I knew I needed to hold on. This poem basically describes the back and force I had in my head of what those juxtaposing feelings were like.

I am so tired of everything

No matter what nobody will care

How unimportant it seems, life

When nobody bothers to notice you

I am done being a burden to everyone

I want and need this life to end

There will be always be someone to care

Even when it seems like you've met the end

It's hard when on your shoulders is everything

But don't be mistaken you can have a great life

You can't always have your mind be on you

Learn to care about not you, but everyone

No longer do I wish to have this life

I promise I am done with everyone

I just cannot deal with everything

Nobody cares until who hurts is you

I am ready for this life, everything, to end

Nobody cares, and nobody ever will care

You cannot let this be the end

I promise you can get through this life

Think about everyone who needs you

There's much more to see, there's everything

I promise the hate is not from everyone

If nobody else then there's me, I care

No I can't this has to end

I am over it I am over everything

Don't lie to me, you don't care

All I am is a burden to everyone

I have to end it, I have to end this life

I'm sorry but you'd understand if it was you

I do understand because I was you

I thought I was a burden to everyone

I thought that I couldn't deal with life's everything

I thought that this was a bad life

I didn't have anyone to care

I promise it get better, this doesn't have to be the end

I'm sorry

This is the end.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
