Suicide.


Image from suicide.

Why can't I treat this like poetry? Just take a razor blade between my fingers and slash it across my wrist;Watch blood gush like a stream of red wine down my arms; Can you tell the difference between the smell of fresh blood from cheap perfume?

Why can't I treat this like any other activity?

I could throw myself off a cliff while whistling;
I could jump off the bridge, laughing in the nude;
I could dance across a busy street while the traffic lights turn green;
I could drink poison, pretend it tastes like honey.
I could drive my car blind-folded as if I am riding a plane
I could speed around a dangerous curve and crash into a tree.

Why can't I treat this like religion?

I could light candles and burn incense at the altar
Recite the rosary a million times backwards, swear upon the bible
I could even emulate Jesus by walking bare-footed on water
I could climb the railings of an eighteenth floor apartment balcony

And step out into thin air.

When the road ends
Stuck by a concrete wall
The suicide people stare
Kamikaze or what?

Why people go to take lives?
Can’t they see living have problems so are the dead?
This is life the celebrating of good and evil
The tendency of looking for short cut
The mental capacity is weak or friends and relatives
Closing one eye and don’t give a concern?
Dead or alive is just a statistic on a piece of paper
Somebody commits suicide…………….

The valley of the popping pills
Overdose with drugs and sleeping tablets
Go away peacefully in dreaming state
And never get up when the sun rises

Suicide isn’t a way to achieve enlightenment
It is a spiral journey to the dark side
People who die from suicides
The Chinese say ‘the devil takes their souls already’
When the fire glow is weak, the evil comes to play

And the Muslims have ‘jihad’
Killing others for the leaders personal gain
The suicide bombers ignited the flames
Many innocents die together with them

Oh yes….suicide on the dark side
It is the bath of burning fire
Don’t these people realize it?
One must go through life
Like the fear factor programs
Come out wiser and full of life
Only these people think
Asking help isn’t showing weakness
It shows good management of one’s life

Dear Susan,

I believe that you are a Christian and suicide is by all means admonished and if you ever even think of suicide, call me. We'll do this together, but you first. ;)

Live is precious as there will always friends to cheer and support anyone who is "down". Hey, I once thought suicide was fun, but never attempted before SO FAR.

Actually suicide is the most serviceable aspect of the life sustaining process. Once his determination solidifies, he begins to entertain the positive without fear, why not have a wish it's over anyway. With this, anxiety finds abeyance, and the wish is no longer feared, with that a possibility is born.?
