Treasure Island

Kill or Be killed

(8/14/92 / Pittsburgh)

Thanks.


Thanks to my brothers who do nothing but look out for me,
Thanks to my dad whos done all he can for me,
Thanks to my grandmother who raised me,
And,
Thanks to my mom who made me hate me,

All 4 of my brothers I know they care, but they can't save me
My dad who loved me, I couldn't save him,
My grandmother whos dying, I can't save her,
And,
My mom who is selfish, I can't change her.

I can't do anything, I tried... so self-centeredly the only thing I see left is suicide.

    Well if you are going to write a poem and thank your family with putting them through hell. at least spell it properly KK! Suicide is a cowards way out, or so my own, not particularly brilliant mother always said! We all have crosses to bear and suicide is one of the least fair on those left to deal with such tragedy. We all feel like this at times, but if we hold on tight, there is always a new day to shine on....Take care, Tai (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
