    If you are suicidal, please get help

    I have trouble sleeping.

    Mostly because I think too much. When I do get tired and sleep, I wish to sleep more than the normal hours. When my eyes open, signaling that I'm alive, I close them back, and wish they stay closed, and I go back to sleeping in the abyss. Don't bid me a "good night or sleep...

    I want to die. I want to die I just don't want

    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.
