Just in case you’re wondering …
Those who kill themselves – or try –
do not want to die.
Hurt loved ones
Inflict pain on others
Leave a sparkling legacy behind.
All they want is for the pain to go away.
How selfish of them!
How can they hurt me so!
These thoughts are your thoughts –
The Myths of The Others
When, in fact, it is an act of preservation of the self –
In a twisted sort of way …
But fully logical.
When the self causes more harm –
It is only natural to obliterate.
An act of Desperation –
When one can no longer see the light.
Make the pain go away –
Make it stop –
But God is not there.
And that is the only prayer they can utter.
When the only Light is Darkness
And when they –
The Expert Navigators –
Reach the end –
And, there –
There is Light!
Than the accidental slip of the tongue.
