Have You Ever Thought... - Poem by Dee Daffodil

Have you ever thought of...
Offing yourself..
By Putting a plastic bag over your head
Or perhaps a belt around your neck
Or perhaps tying your childs skipping rope around your neck
Or perhaps inviting your family to your suicide
Because wouldn't it be nice
To have a going away party for the old man?
Well...I'm sorry...but if you have
With all due respects...
You're seriously fucked! !
Get help...
Don't make the survivors
Suffer the guilt! !

Just a thought....

    Well written - can't say I have thought...cowardly isn't it and, as you say, no thought for the poor loved ones left behind - so selfish - makes me angry just thinking about it. I have known a couple of people who have had relatives commit suicide; they leave behind so many unanswered questions, and people close usually saying they had no idea, if only they had listened etc. - blaming themselves...terrible...I could go on, but I won't... Well done.
    Take care. Joey

    Not 'just' a thought, but one which is superbly, angrily penned, and a voice perhaps some should listen to whilst the selfish all-consuming feelings of despair kick in... hypocrisy or a lesson learned, some might say of me, but I say, wonderful piece, Dee. t x (Report)Reply

    Oh god the way you started it I went like 'huh? '
    But the end was great, it'll strike a chord with suicidal people. It'll choke them into giving up their suicide plan :)

    Good job!

    Don't suffer in silence, I think that we all have things that need to be talked out,
    My dad often says that no-body gets a free ride, we can deal with the way we are and the things that cause us up-set, but we must also remember that nothing affects us that we do not put emotion into, a complicated balance of self, I know
    But please even if it is for the few moments that you can fully enjoy life, live for them,
    None of us go through life without insecurities, talk to people, share with them, you may be surprized as to just how many feel the same way, but also don't be too surprized if they don't want to share with you, as this may be their way of trying to deal with it
    This is a great piece, you have shared so much feeling with us,
    Thankyou Dee, stay with us girl!
    Love duncan X
