Why Commit Suicide? - Poem by Sylvia Chidi

Why commit suicide?
Don’t tie yourself with a rope
With life, there is always hope
With life, there is always scope

Why commit suicide?
For you there is no roller coaster life ride
Your heart is filled with an empty hole so wide
Don’t put yourself on fire and fry
With life, you can still make an effort and try
Please leave us not with a permanent goodbye

Why commit suicide?
Believe me when I say ‘You are not alone’
Many out there are shivering cold to the bone
Express your feelings to someone on the phone
Full of debt
Never properly slept
Always sadly wept
Wish you had something wonderful
You could have treasured and kept
Unsucessfuly with exams
After hectic midnight crams
Who gives a damn!

You are not alone!
You are not alone!

So you feel so empty inside
You are full of egoistical pride
To admit the thought of a suicide tide
Love has never even been on your side
Believe me when I say ‘You are not alone’
With life, there is no stone
That you cannot eventually overthrow
To reclaim your rightful throne
So why commit suicide?

    Death is nothing but a relief of the real world, if people die then they die. I know it may sound rude and or morbid and not many people will enjoy what I say but I really don't care if you like what I say or not. But though this poem was good I did enjoy it, but when people commit suicide it isn't suicide that kills them it's the depression that's inside of them. Other than that I enjoyed the poem greatly, so good job on it and keep up the work. (Report) Reply

    The beauty of poetry is you can decide for yourself what the poem is all about! (Report) Reply

    I can't quite figure out if your writing a poem to help others or if your feeling that bad. Well, anyway, great poem. (Report) Reply
