Favorite Quote:
Those who mind, don't matter, and those who matter, don't mind.
~Dr. Seuss.

A word that makes most feel uneasy
The pain, despair, and sorrow
The loss of a loved one
It is a time for grieving
The pain involved is sometimes too hard to bear
Which often, creates more deaths
The selfishness
At the news of a death, some feel it would be easier to end their own lives
More sorrow

It’s hard to move on
For some, the light foretold to be at the end of the tunnel seems nonexistent
The feeling of being lost
How can life continue?
The simple joys of life have now been faded away
The devastation has begun to block them from view

Crying inside
Unable to speak,
To comfort,
To help
Invisible to the eyes of the living
It is sad to see one death cause many
The one who has left the earth,
The visibility to the living,
And the ability to interact
Does not wish for this
The sadness is prone to happen at a death
Even appreciated
More death
Is not

The author's comments:
I was inspired to write this poem after the death of my fish. His death provoked thoughts inside my head of human death. It is truly sad to see people die themselves, physically, and emotionally, from the death of someone else.

I hope that by reading this, people will realize that death is sad. It is depressing. Sometimes the death of one can create more deaths. It doesnt have to be that way though. I hope that my poem reaches out to people and reminds them that you can make it through tough times such as this. Dying yourself in many different ways, is not what the person who died would have wanted. Stay strong.

"Keep holding on. I'm here for you. Just stay strong. I'm here for you. Keep holding on. We'll make it through."
~Avril Lavigne "Keep Holding On"
