The Baker Act - Poem by james d nall,jr

Thinking I'd harm myself in some way
My family tried to Baker Act me the other day
Little did they realize
I wouldn't go because of their lies

Killing me is not in the equation you see
I just wanted to get away before I went crazy
It doesn't matter what they feel inside
I'm just trying to save my simple pride

Now I think they really understand
That I'm not a child, but a man
I make my choices in my life
I could care less about their strife

So..now the cold taste of steel
In my mouth is the last thing I feel
As the hammer drops and the bullet enters my brain
I say Goodbye to this world and all my pain...
