She Couldn’t Fight The Battle Anymore

10561034_1441781012754133_601785930_neveryone this is simone battle.
she was a twenty five year old aspiring singer,
whose group “G.R.L.” was starting to take off:

she also appeared on x factor a few times.
she even had many tumblr folks reblogging her for her style.
she was like many of us,
trying to turn a dollar into a dream.
well simone lost the internal battle last night.
she allegedly ended her life.
stories like these make me so sad.
taylour paige,
from “hit the floor”,
had some words to share about her friend on instagram

you never know your presence until someone has to tell you.
i don’t even know that vixen,
but i (and many in the foxhole) can relate.
judging from ( x simone’s twitter ),
she didn’t even come off like she was suffering in silence.
funny enough,
i remember her on this episode of “x factor”:

depressing that she couldn’t hold on with us a bit longer.
may she rest peacefully.

lowkey: i believe when you kill yourself,
god shows you what would have happened if you held on.
¬†you’d be force to see that in the next hour,
or week is when your blessing would have arrived.
everything you were fighting for would have made sense.
are you willing to still hold on?

  1. This is really disheartening, especially seeing the her group was on their way.

    But I teaches me more that just because something looks good on the outside, it doesn’t paint the whole picture. My troubles are immaterial compared to those of others.

  2. Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. Depression and suicide are real health problems. And they are likely sometimes problems of social support by friends and family. It takes a village to raise a child and to live long and prosper. Don’t believe me? Ask Robin Williams and Simone Battle.

  3. Wow I literally cried why reading this. I didn’t know anything of her until now. But suicide is such a heartbreaking thing to see. She looked beautiful and seemed to be so happy which makes it even more sad. You just never know with people. A smile and an ear can go along way even with strangers.

  4. The song sort of frightens me. Notice that its showing women that tatooed the face of a guy they did not like to disfigure him.That makes me ill. What a sad, sad situation. Im so sorry for your friend.

If you wouldn't say it on live TV with all your family and friends watching, without getting canceled or locked up, don't say it on here. Stay on topic, no SPAM, and keep it respectful. Thanks!
