September 10th is International Suicide Prevention Day. It is one of the leading causes of death worldwide and is totally preventable. A major cause of this is mental illness, mainly depression.
I’ve lost several friends through this. Watched them crumble and lose hope from the sidelines because I was also dealing with my own demons. I often think that maybe if I was well, I would’ve been able to do something. Anything.
This particular piece was written about someone who was very close to me, someone whose demons played well with mine. I miss him every day.
Para sa lahat ng nauna, at sa lahat ng naiwan.
