A Nine Year Old's Suicide Note

Dear mommy and daddy and everyone else,

I had lots of fun with you. But I got bored of having fun. The other things to do, in which you don't have fun, are terribly boring too. So, like I told all of you, I decided to die. I am sorry for being a disobedient girl. You all told me not to die for some reason. Mommy, you, asked me to think about how daddy would feel and daddy told me that mommy couldn't live without me. Suzie told me to not make mom and dad feel bad. Brother asked me to stay alive for my friends and his friend Dave told me that my brother loved me and this would hurt him a lot. But I think either all of you are lying or none of you know the truth. Because I spoke to all the people who others said would miss me. And all of them said that somebody else will mind. But nobody told me that they wanted me to live. Nobody said that they will miss me, or that they will be sad if I am not here anymore. So I asked all of you and no one had any problem. For all of the people each of you mentioned, I spoke to them and found out that they don't mind me dying.
So I am going to die, Good Bye. It was a lot of fun to have lived with all of you.HUG.BYEBYE!!!

Amy

  4. Very nicely written, however, I think, the logic may not hold in reality, somebody will say "I need you" instead of passing the buck to someone else. It may be true that the person is still lying, because uttering emotional phrases is quite easy.

  5. Nice.. exactly how a nine year old might write.. but i've seen better articles.. i ain't convinced with the logic too.. i think ppl dont say that coz they are afraid to even consider the possibility of living without them..

  6. @Anindita,Debanjan: ofcourse what the girl thinks is flawed. Everyone obviously care for her, but they avoid accepting the truth because they are afraid of hurting themselves. I am just suggesting that we should tell people how important they are to us...
    @Abhimanyuda: I agree that people utter emotional phrases quite often these days but often when they actually mean it, they somehow end up not expressing it
    @Anki, Devdeep: thanks a lot :)
