Teen Suicide

Teen suicide means when a young person (usually under age 20) deliberately ends their own life. A lot of youths have attempted or completed suicide, especially in western societies. Between the 1960s and 1980s, the rates of suicide in youths have nearly tripled.

If wild my breast and sore my pride,I bask in dreams of suicide; If cool my heart and high my headI think, 'How lucky are the dead! ' Rhyme Against Living - Poem by Dorothy Parker

I am aware of these behaviors because I have seen many examples in news. Most of the teens committed suicide because of depression, academic pressure, poor family patter, loss of valued relationship or alchohol consumption. In this glogster, a lot of information is presented, and I intend to make people aware of teen suicides.

Poetry

All around me are familiar faces Worn out places Worn out faces Bright and early for their daily races Going nowhere Their tears are filling up their glasses No expression Hide my head I want to drown my sorrow No tomorrow And I find it kind of funny I find it kind of sad The dreams in which I'm dying Are the best I've ever had

I find it hard to tell you Cause I find it hard to take When people run in circles It's a very very mad world Children waiting for the day they feel good Happy birthday Made to feel the way that every child should Sit and listen Went to school and I was very nervous No one knew me Now the teacher tells me what's my lesson Look right through me
