“If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?” - Mad Hatter

Poison drips from my lips,
I slowly drip my head back as I drink.
Slowly I wait.

Shouldn’t it have worked by now?
The way I see it
Everything kills.
Everyone dies for one reason or another.

Why should I hang on when I have nothing to keep me here?
When you took it from me again,
That last piece of dignity I was holding on to.

Selfish people need to hold on to everything,
I don’t need everything.
Just a piece,
Just enough to hold on to, until it works; until I die from the poison you feed me daily.

The author's comments:
What is it about?
It's actually about pollution and how bad our food is now, and also bullying and how they take away everything you have.
Now that you know the truth go back and reread it.
What do you think?
Is it still about suicide?
