Suicide is the second-leading cause of death among adolescents. Sexual minority individuals are at a higher risk of suicide and attempted suicide.
Yes, it's true, life is a never-ending fight,
An unequal fight against a hidden fighter,
Who cannot be touched by any of our blows;
And in our riddled hearts, as in a target,
Tremble the arrows launched by the invisible archer.
We are doomed, we must all perish;
To be born is only to begin to die,
The clock disc is the song of combat,
Where the death of his scythe by the thousands strikes us down;
Death, a rough jouster who suffices to defend
The eternity of God, which we would like to take from him.
