    Sometimes I just lay down in bed

    and hope maybe I'll die tonight. I'm not depressed, I'm just a sad person and I'm just kinda tired of life. It wouldn't hurt to die.

    I really feel like there's nothing left anymore,

    I want to die. My life just feels worthless like it's slowly crumbling into nothing. Like my life's just in limbo and only getting worse. Everyday is a struggle to keep myself happy And motivated. What's left for me?

    to go to hell. I want to serve God as an angel. I'm out of place on earth here. What I just realized is how easy it is to die, but so many of us are scared to, the ONLEY thing that is holding me back is the fear of going to hell.
