Suicide Futility - Poem by John Sensele

Suicide signifies failure
Despite loss of love, loss of hope
When mad blood takes over judgment to lure
An individual around a neck to hang a rope.

Suicide coupled with lives of innocent children
Deletes from the book of life names
Frustrated, hustled and taunted by brethren
Who sow seeds of division and finger pointing blames.

Suicide offers the wrong closure
To minds that run out of sensible options
But denies families, communities and congregations the pleasure
To enjoy for long lasting associations.

Suicide at best admits defeat
In the face of matrimonial and pecuniary challenges
When confusion urges a man this Earth to quit
Because relatives purloin from his nervous system meninges.
