Talk to her about it, she may be reaching out for help. I know from personal experience. Check online for the warning signs, they may be subtle to you but to your daughter, they mean everything.
Yes, absolutely be worried. It's therapeutic for people to put their feelings on paper, poems, songs. Please sit your daughter down and calmly give her a way to relay her feelings to you. If you're wrong, and she's just writing a song great, but if your instinct is right, you've given your daughter life....again.
Not worried but you should ask her why she write this type of song
I think about suicide, a lot. People aren't always open with how they are feeling, especially with a topic like that. You should talk to her but from experience, I think you should do it in a way that won't pressure her into telling you, if your instinct is right.
In addition to writing a letter is she showing signs of depression such as: (1) Withdrawal from family and friends. (2) A change in eating and sleeping patterns. (3) A loss of interest in activities that were once pleasurable. (4) A marked change in her personality. (5) Drug or alcohol abuse (6) Giving away prized possessions. (6) Talking about death or being preoccupied with subjects related to it.
One of the greatest mistakes a parent can make is to ignore such warning signs. Take all threats seriously! Do not hastily conclude that your child is simply going through a phase. Many youths are relieved when parents bring up the subject. So if she admits to having thoughts of suicide, find out if a plan has been devised, and if so, how detailed it is. The more detailed the plan, the more urgently you need to intervene.
If she's a teenager .! No need to be worried .!Teenager do a lot of stupid things and they don't mean ..!

Anonymous...most definitely be concerned! Suicide has been called "a permanent solution to a temporary problem". As hard as it may be to believe, a distressing circumstance - even one that seems beyond her control - may well be temporary. In fact, it can change for the better unexpectedly. Even if that does not appen, it is best that to encourage her to tackle the problem one day at a tme. "Never be anxious about the next day, Jesus said, "for the next day will have its own anxieties. Each day has enough of its own troubles."
Remember This: You cannot scale a mountain in a single step; however, you can take on the challenge one step at a time. The same is true of most obstacles you face, no matter how mountainlike they might seem to be.
WHAT CAN YOU DO; Encourage her to talk to someone - perhaps a friend or family member-about her problem or situation. That person may be able to help you view your situation in a more balanced way.
