Last Minutes

In the last minutes, you realize your life is done.
In the last minutes, you know bitter depression has won.
In the last minutes, you remember happiness you cannot find.
In the last minutes, you think of all you’re leaving behind.
In the last minutes, you write notes of explanation.
In the last minutes, you tell us of your frustration.
In the last minutes, you reach your ultimate low.
In the last minutes, you decide it’s time to go.

While writing this piece I tried to imagine some of the thoughts going through my uncles' head before he committed suicide. It was hard to do, and brought back a lot of emotions.
