    I know it probably won't end up well,

    but sometimes I just want to leave everything behind. My parents try to hid their fighting from me and my brothers, but I hear them late at night talking/yelling at each other about how their marriage is unstable. Apparently my dad doesn't love my mom and wants to start a life...

    I live in Cairns, Australia.

    I really want to leave. It's nothing to do with my family, I just hate school. It makes me want to die. I've considered self harm. If there's anyone who lives here and is in the same situation, contact me on Twitter @mjlm17823

    If I could break away from all these painful,

    tangled, thorny vines... If I didn't feel so desperate to be good, correct, and everything you need... If I let go of all the memories that cloud my vision... I would run away to a warm welcoming freedom and fill my lungs with cool clean joy and exhale love... I would run away

    Far far away.. But I'm giving up hope.

    . And although suicide is a "sin" I'm going to do it one of these days. Just stocking up on sleeping pills. But if I can find a place within the next month, I I'll be happy... Oh so happy.

    It's Not A Solution ...
