There’s nothing more tragic than watching talented young people gamble with their lives and eventually lose.

Having heard many Lil Peep quotes and song lyrics, I knew how deeply troubled he was.

To Conclude

Most people are fortunate enough to never truly understand the toll poor mental health can take on a person, their family, and the community at large. If you’re one such person, I can only hope these words might have even opened your eyes to some of those struggles.

On the other hand, if you’re a heartbroken fan like me, these Lil Peep quotes may bring you closure. After all, pain wasn’t the only thing this young man felt. Even though he was known for reviving emo music, his lyrics were also full of hope and love. He didn’t want to die, not really. Furthermore, he was always planning for a brighter future — and that’s something we can all learn from him even now.
