Denied An Easy Escape: Suicide

August 22, 2010
You hope and think of a better tomorrow,
But there's no strength to get you through today,
You reach for the knife but it's too far away,
The pain of the day weighs down your feet,
So does all the expectations of others you know you will never meet,
You think you are not good enough,
You just want to give up,
You think your life has no meaning,
Your life and dreams slowly receding,
Another day in withdraw,
Thinking your life has no meaning at all,
You have been denied an easy escape.

Thank you. You aren't alone, I wrote this about someone close to me. I am sure at least one time in everyone's life they think about it or at least go over why they aren't ever going to do it. Stay strong =]
