Impetuosity to depart to the house of charnel
Sorrow, you have proceeded to anonymous, set apart, nirvana
'Angel of death' the heir did take. Mortality is my boy to this world
Inferior is the afterlife. Afterlife never abandons it's duty to us all.

It makes me sad to read this poem Rachel, my thoughts and prayers are with you. I realize by the details you have given above that the young man was just a bit older than my son, and it is ever so tragic to someone in the prime life to pass on as he has done. Be strong and may God be with you. I know it is not easy to bear this.

A heart touching and sorrowful poem dedicated to the young man who took away his own life.Why this is happening? We should all make a soulful search and make all out effort to dispel gloom and bring hope to any body whom we find in distress through our words and deeds.We can also form forums for detecting distressing signals where psychologists, doctors, social activists, conscious civilians should be members.They can advice, treat and show new path to people in distressing situations..Thanks Raechel for bringing this topic for discussion.We are deeply saddened when we hear a case of suicide.But we should also discuss to find a solution.

I feel the emotion of sadness when you write the poem. My sympathy and he may rest in peace in the Kingdom of God, The feel that you had might be parallel to what I got when my brother died just July 15,2015. And I did compose a poem during that time and post it at the social media Facebook. I titled it - Why He - maybe I'll post it later here in PH later so you may read it. I like the brevity of your poem and well penned.
