Suicide is not an option
We do not have the right
To transfer despair
To the innocent.

Well said and said well. Nailed it, Dibs. Sorrowful posting but wise reminder. Warm regards, Connie
My barometer of life is point to stormy right now. This is a message to myself, but also a message to anyone else who finds themselves overwhelmed by life
So so true.
A simple true, but one that need to be said
How true Dibs, how true. Considered, rather than concidered! Sounds like you're a victim of too much cider
Victim of not being able to spell, thanks for the correct
Well said Dibs; you got your point across in several thousand less words than I would have used!
Maybe true, but you would have raised a laugh as your portayed the message
oh lord how did you know?
thats so right
The longer your life the more the struggles, the wiser you become. At least I hope
Peace and contentment
You make the finest point here. Short and to the point. I wrote a poem called (Suicide or...) a while back approaching the subject from a totally different perspective.
Nice writing and great wisdom!
Thanks Obi, Nice to see you about. I have written a couple more poems recently that may have slipped you by
much respect and warmth
touche! well encapsulated :-)
Thank you, well commented
so true......perfectly expressed
Sadly in the midst of such deep despair, judgement is clouded and with that disturbance of the mind, rational consideration for loved ones disabled. My grandfather used to say that people who took their own lives are selfish, which I believe to be far too judgmental and simplistic. Although in theory Dibs, I do agree with your sentiment... it's just in practice.
completely agree, I have lived with the suicide of my brother (in denial) and I have been to the edge of that cliff myself. The sad benifit of my brothers death is that it saved my life in the realization that my death would have extended my brothers legacy to my children. The thought of them on that cliff and me, not only not being there to catch them, but the cause of their distress is the safety rope I need when looking over the edge.
Others are not so lucky when thier mind has tumbled into disarray, the are not guilty of selfishness as they believe their action are for the best, they are just unable to see beyond that point and thus are simply victims of curcumstance.
My poem was to highlight the legacy of a suicide attempt. There are many teens that read booksie and are drawn to the subject. I wanted a quick and simple way of sewing this thought in their minds, and that has to be a good thing.
Thank you for your comments on the subject, it is one that once touched by clings and in talking/writing about it helps loosen its cloak.
sh-t, just realised this sounded more like a sermon than a comment! I am guessing you probably agree with my thoughts (?) and you are referring to simply one small aspect of the outfall.Sorry, but subject a bit close to my heart, so got more than a bit carried away! It is a well written statement piece by the way!
Indie, nothing to apologies for, your comment was true, as to this one. As I said previously my intentions was to write a 'byte' size poem for a 'byte' size society, a bit of grab and go realization.
I am sorry to hear you too have been touched by suicide's cloak, it is a heavy one to cast off.
Dibs, after reading this I felt compelled to explain myself a little further. Firstly I can only imagine the horror you and your family would and all the 'what if's'. Fortunately, no one I know directly has taken their life but I know someone who's brother also took their's and the the turmoil she suffers over 30 years later. I also am acquainted to someone who's son took their's at only 15. The most accepting and gentle of people. On a more personal level, there is someone who I am very close to who has attempted to take their life once. I live almost daily with the fear that the next time they will be successful. I did not want to mislead you and I am so sorry for your loss.
Indie, you are most gracious, thank you for this and I hope your suport will help your friend accept and move on. I have been in turmoil myself for over 30 years and it is only now that I have begun to look under this particular stone. I will write of it as I begin.
Thank you for your condolences, it seems strange to accept them after such a long time, but also apt and needed.
