As you enter the house

With abeaten 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?
