This is a poem about a girls suicide at my school in junior high. She was a year behind me. The school I went to was a very small country school, where everyone knew each other. My father is a minister of religion and he took the funeral service. It was a sad year in that town, as three people died from car crashes and suicide, including a friend of mine.

UNNECESSARY DEATH
A personal tragedy, a cry for help.
A plea for love, hope and acceptance
From a fragile being, living and hurting in a world
That thrives on hatred and vileness.
 
This poor being struggling in the mire of life.
Receiving no help from humanity in this terrible tale.
There was no good Samaritan to pick up this broken being,
From the wayside and help it.
 
This being this human died swinging from a pole.
Dying a slow horrible, choking death.
A symbol of this world’s encircling cycles
Of corruption and sin.
 
Affecting all in a way that only divine intervention can,
Washing away these filthy ways and dregs of society.
Many try to forget, but can’t because,
They remember the tragic way human beings are dying.
 
This torn and tattered being couldn’t cope.
Couldn’t cope with the rejection that was
Being handed to her on a silver platter.
 
An age old question asks “To be or not to be?”
Due to the evil factors of this tortured civilisation,
It was decided that it was not to be.
This tragic event was an unnecessary death,
Of a human being just like you and I.
