On Life's Ledge - Poem by Chinwe Robert

On life's ledge
and about to take a dive
on rocks below
cracking the skull like being hit with a sledge hammer
I pause and think it through
is it worth it?
Definitely, life sucks!

On life's ledge
and waiting for Katrina
to haul me away and shatter me to a thousand pieces
chopping me up like finely diced meat.
I smile in expectation;
it has to be worth it,
because life sucks!

On life's ledge
and without any note
and no natures force there to aid
a blade in hand and wrists prepared
I pause and let it sink through
the reality of life:

On life's ledge
and through to the other side
no rocks, no Katrina and no blade to consider
nor a white light as most say they see
it's all darkness here and there around
it all fades and reappears like an uncertain vision
life doesn't suck, it's just fuzzy
