When God leads you to the edge of the cliff, trust Him fully and let go. Only one of two things will happen: either He'll catch you when you fall, or He'll teach you how to fly!


Good evening folks. Welcome to the inside of my brain...

Don't worry, for most of you will run away,

and some of you will be surprised, assuming that you choose to stay. 

 

To begn our journey we have a pinch of grief and a touch of sorrow, 

now mix it all together. It only get's worse in the morrow. 

 

Now we meet my demons, whose job was to destroy, 

to suck out all my happiness and leave me with no joy. 

 

Here we have my bloody wrist, filled with the scars from the blade,

Oh...I cried for hours, yet I found no aid. 

 

Moving on please say hello to the people who ruined my soul, 

they haunted my thoughts and eventually ate me as a whole.

 

Unfortunately as we end, please take a look at my friends,

these people saved me more than once but alas, my life came to an end. 

 

Forgive me folks, I now bid my way to my stone cold bed, 

goodnight everyone, for this concludes the lullabuy of the dead...


The author's comments:

it's basically about a suicidal woman who killed herself and it's her journey from her death till her coffin. Hope this helps some people, because if you relate to this at all, just know that you are not alone.

There is freedom waiting for you,
on the breezes of the sky.
And you ask: "What if I fall?"
Oh but my darling, what if you fly? -E.H.

I really liked this poem. Thanks for sharing.
