Sometimes I want
To kill myself.
Other times I just
Want to eat so
Much bacon that
I have to throw up.
Either way, I’m
Always afraid to
Actually do it.

  2. Death is only the beginning. I don’t think we do ourselves any favors by killing ourselves. Just makes the afterlife that much worse. Trade in our human woes for super natural ones?..Ehhh…I’m in no rush. Haha.
