Poem about suicide.

LETTER TO A FRIEND
Copyright © Victor Darnell Hadnot

The cold winds push past my existence
The melody as if calling me perhaps seeking me
Where have I fallen to such a church willing
Never to let go and yet I must for I can no
Longer stand the pain of knowing the world
My mind is filled with noise and sorrow
Images that no one can bear but God himself
For to hear is to know and to see is to cry
How can a loveless world exist and what for
So that the poor can suffer while the rich party
I came into this life alone and I shall leave it so
Who am I and where I can not find myself
I am lost without friend or family hated at every
Turn of my existence there is darkness and I
Fight it but there is no hope no redemption only
The cry of the new born child and the eyes of
Such open love but now only is emotional pain
So I ask my leave of suffering and hate of the
Misunderstandings and the obvious will of self
Gone are winds of Riner as they carry me away
