Is It Still A Joke Now?

People joke about suicide
Think its just some game
Think people cut for attention
Starve themselves for fame
Little do they know
The girl behind them was bipolar
Wondering why they thought it was funny
to feel like a complete loser
Would they finally get it
when she starved herself to death?
or was hanging from a ceiling?
Having taken her last breath
Then would they see?
Would they stop to think
that a girl took her own life
Cause y'all loved to pick
If they saw her body
Crumpled, bleeding, and laying on the ground
After jumping twenty stories
off her balcony
If they saw her brains painting her room
A rope around her throat
Her blood coating the floor
Now she's gone because of you
Her spirits in the clouds
Her parents utterly confused
So, is it still a joke now?
