Teen Suicide – Is It the Ultimate Solution ?


You were the person with so much zeal,
With desires burning on fire,
To put on the best attire.
To be the hot headlines among peer,
Seeing your goals just so clear.
You were the person with so much zeal

Is this not the way how you stepped into your teenage when you could go running to your mom and tell her that you are at least a teen, you are not supposed to be called a child anymore.Having so much of enthusiasm and hopes inside, what are the factors then which make a lively teen go beyond his thoughts and think of committing a sin of killing himself/herself.Yes, you just read it right. I termed suicide as a “sin” because that is what we call when god’s creation is hampered in any way.

Definitely, “adolescence” is the struggling phase of a person who just crossed childhood and a “will be an adult”.Anxiety, excitement, emotions, hormonal rush and much more comes with the advent of teenage.The phase of life where you tend to take everything to a new level of expression.Keeping up balance is definitely not easy but not coping up with one’s life doesn’t mean ending it.

On Nov 1st’2015, Kota, a medical aspirant girl hanged herself to death in a hostel.As soon as the police were informed, media trailed in too.The hostel people and family members were reportedly told that she was under lots of academic pressure which ultimately made her take the fatal step.Many other rumours aired in with her death.She left a suicide note stating, “I am sorry mummy papa, I should not do this, but I am left with no choice”.

Is a sorry enough to fill the void in a parents’ heart?Nobody is capable enough to replace this pain with anything else in the world.
They held your little fingers because they wanted you to catch all the beauty you could,
They taught you to walk because they wanted you to explore the wide vistas of the world.
Had they been knowing your hands will be used to gulp the unwanted, And,
Your legs being numb with no life to sustain.
It would be better if they were never daunted, because, for lifetime
You gave them treachery with the most unbearable pain.
