Dying To Die - Poem by Lyn Paul

Running from life
Seems to be, just no way out

Yet there is!

That question
Those left behind
Want to know

We are born to live
Yet Many, just want to die
They've Given up
Or maybe...
They've never been living

That question
Those left suffering
Keep asking

Is living so bad?
To just throw it all away
If you could see the hole you would leave
Would you still leave us?

How could you not know
The love I have for you....
We were laughing
Just yesterday

Life's Purpose
Is not pain
It's to explore
For nothing, worth dying for

Not Love
Not Anger
Not Loss
Not Debt

Never Give Up
Let someone in to share your load

No Parent wants to bury their child

I so wish.....
I wish
I could just.....
Hold your hand

Let nature
Just take its course

    Life is for living, but bad does happen to people and we all need to be there for one another to listen to their pain and give support to them when they feel so depressed. A poem full of hope as you shine a light in the darkness that is suicide.
    Beautiful write Lyn!

    Life is the gift of God and no living being, except man, thinks of committing suicide. You have very rightly pointed out that life's purpose is to explore and under whatever circumstance a man may be, he should not premediate death. A very beautiful poem exalting life. (Report) Reply
