The effects of suicide...

As you enter the house

With a�beaten car in the

Gravel laid drive

You walk past the

Panicked, sobbing, effected

Loved ones

As you enter the room

You see it...

���� Hanging from the ceiling

��������� Bleeding on the sheets

�������������� Splattered on the walls

You notice...

���� Limp extremities dangling like a silent wind chime

��������� A razor blade still in hand, moistened with blood

�������������� A cooling firearm, freshly used

You know that...

���� A twenty-five year old father, could no longer provide

���� for his newly formed family

��������� A sixteen year olds boyfriend, just broke up with her

�������������� A seventy year old male, is hiding from consequences

������������������� They all took the easy way out

They all bequeathed

Their burden

On to survivors

Who now

���� Struggle alone to provide

��������� Wonder where they went wrong

�������������� Question if you really had something to hide from

Was it worth it...

���� To not look for a new job?

��������� To not move on, and to seek love again?

�������������� To cheat consequences?

Did you think about...

���� The first time you held your baby?

��������� Your family who loves you?

�������������� Your wife, children, and grandchildren who will miss you?

Did it make it easier on you to know...

���� Your son will grow up with out a father?

��������� Your parents will seal off your room?

�������������� Your family will remember you as a coward?
