Blackness - Poem by Ron Farmer

KNive and pills
Guns and blades
So many options
So many ways

They say I wont do it
That Im really afraid
They laugh at me now
as the light starts to fade

12 hours later
I wake in haze
Still with a fire
Still in a blaze

Sooner or later
They'll be nothing to save
so leave me alone
with my razor blades
