To kill or not to kill?
That is no question.
A murderer to all.
Giving in, giving up, giving your last breath
To those who dwindle your
Upon their seductive vat of lost hope.
I... am stronger than this.

Strong enough to write the eulogy of my devotion.
To cheat myself, to harm you.
To the world and skies, it's not matter.
To commit suicide would be worth it
To save those already dead,
To punish me in hell,
To love me for the loss,
To hate me for having no choice.

The author's comments:
Based on the band Green Day's song "Jesus of Suburbia." I was forced to write a poem with lines beginning with the word "to," but I couldn't bring myself to do it because I felt like I was cheating myself. I'm a huge Green Day fan, and these lyrics are why I did not enjoy writing this.
"To live, and not
To breathe is
To die in tragedy.
To run,
To run away, is
To find what
To believe."
