Take Suicide Off The Table

Take Suicide Off the Table

When life is dark and dreary,
and pain is deep within your soul;
thoughts of death and destruction emerge
and depression takes its toll.

Solutions may be hard to find,
and optimism seems too cavalier;
find a space between your thoughts
before spiraling down in fear.

Take suicide off the table;
it's not an option for your pain.
Open your mind to possibilities
there is so much to gain.

Suicide is not painless,
those who are left behind will say,
Suicide is severely painful,
and it never goes away;
it never goes away.

    Yes-It never goes away. Life is always full of pain, in every turn or crack.

    Great poem! We must learn to ignor the pain & be positive and move on to happier pastures of the heart.

    God bless poets all-MJG.
