Suicide - Poem by Fernando Alvarez

Suicide is the answer
To many questions asked.
It hides inside of you
But it will be unmasked.
It knows it has power
Over many girls and boys.
It treats people as
If we were little toys.
So will you listen to suicide
And one day take your life?
Think hard before you
Decide to pick up the knife.

    To Michael Joseph, whose comment is below:
    It's true that this particular poem was posted ten years ago, but actually this poet has posted on this site as recently as 2011.
    To everyone:
    Suicide is NEVER the answer.

    Another rather weak poem posted 10 years ago by a 'poet' that stopped contributing a decade ago too, has been given prominence over the many wonderful, active members here.
    C'mon, PH! !

    last 2 lines are the best: Think hard before you
    Decide to pick up the knife.

    Breaks the rhythm. I prefer: -
    Think very hard before you
    Finally raise the knife.

    what makes you think suicide is the answer, it is not. Suicide is the final answer, but you will never know what might have been. it is a well written poem, but with no real answers.except keep trying. (Report)Reply
