Questioned Suicide - Poem by Kelvin Owusu

Suicide is a suggestion
not an option
Self-reflection of our fears, insecurities
All recollection to depression

It’s a suggestion
As this life of mine
Is put to question
As it passes, this reflection
An image obscured by frost
Tainted by dark thoughts
Drawn to its gates

Suicide is a suggestion
Never the option
Staring at the gates of hell
Losing sight of the right direction
Love ones to rely on?
Just wishful thinking
Fake individuals,
Calls for fake smiles

Depressed mind state
These are the times
I wish I had a shoulder to cry on
I need a blessing, hopefully
Heavens got a room
For a lonely offspring.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

this was the first piece wrote and the reason I decided to learn to write, I wrote it at night in the middle of the road, I just ended stopping put my groceries down and started writing in my phone. You could call this my Grand Debut

    Where is our place in life?
    One brgins to question.
    Questions lead to more questions.
    An answer to a first question may be answered by a second question.
    Our life is one big question, the house of question mark we live in.
    All around the house inside and outside are scattered truths and answers.
    Some dicarded because they did not fit and others no longer needed.
    All answers are options like a slice of bread, usually a sandwich is better
    with two slices of bread. (Report) Reply
