Things We Shouldn't Think About

We don’t know why you did it
We can never ask those who may know why

Your decision was rash
That moment when you decided to die

In a flash you life was over
But the impact it left on those around you was not

Even now, more than a year later,
No one knows why you did what you did

We shouldn’t think of these things
It is wrong to judge those who are not around to defend themselves

Yet, you cannot blame us for our curiosity
Not when so much turmoil was caused by your choice

Even I, who never met you,
Feels its presence when I see his face

No, not his face,
His face shows no reminder of that day

It is the faces around him,
When they contemplate things that we should not think about
