If you’re strong enough to take that blade and draw it across your skin.

If you’re strong enough to take those pills and swallow them when no one’s home.

If you’re strong enough to tie that rope and hang it from the ceiling fan.

If you’re strong enough to jump off that bridge, my friend.

You are strong enough, to live.

You are only here for one moment and it lasts exactly one lifetime.
