Chicken

They are all right.
Why can't i just do it?
Slice away the pain.
Watch all my worries flow away
like watching the blood run down my fingers.

I just seen to do it.
I get so close to it.
I really want to do it.
I get halfway, but can't seem to do it.

All i want is to be able to numb the pain.
The pain i feel every damn day of my life.
Wanting to take my last breath
so i dont have to suffer the pain that it holds.
I just want it to be quick,
To get it over with.
But y am i so chicken to want something so great?

    Chicken or just cry-baby? Pain can be fun! No pain is WAY too dull...so is death.

    If the world can fall to the knees of one man, begging and pleading for leadership, how do you think they would react, knowing that he leads them for the love of a woman. Yes i just made that up, but the point to it is that, every person has a point to existence, nothing is simple, and yet knowing only complicates things, There is nothing splendid about death, nothing great, there is no freedom in it. As far as the writing goes, I wouldn't say specifically that it was great, It's too... common. (no offense) Death is a complicated things, thus if you write about death, the symbolism should be complicated as well, so as to correctly respresent the possilities that life lacks and death could hold. I would give it a 7 out of 10 if i had to judge it, However i am not a judge, for i will one day be judged.
