“Men are haunted by the vastness of eternity, and so we ask ourselves: will out actions echo across the centuries? Will strangers hear our names long after we’re gone, and wonder who we were? How bravely we fought? How fiercely we loved?” Sean Bean

I picked up my daughter and kissed her on the cheek.
I picked up my diary and wrote it down
I picked up my prescription Vicodin and downed the bottle.
I picked up the razor as a tear landed in the sink.
I put the razor on my wrist and pressed down.
As I started to pull
I heard my daughter yell mommy.
I heard myself crying.
I heard all the people I disappointed.
I heard my husband come in the door.
I heard him pick up our daughter and ask where’s mommy?
I couldn’t do it, I couldn’t pull.
I still had a family that loved me.
I still had a life.
I still had dreams to accomplish.
I still needed therapy
If it wasn’t for my loving spouse and our kids I would be dead.
