    dotsWhy Not? dots
    -------------------------------------------


    Suicide is
    Selfish
    Childish
    Purposeless

    It is
    Painful
    If not to yourself
    Then to others

    It is messy in one way
    Or another
    Blood or money
    Equally hard to clean up

    It defeats the purpose of living
    Is defiant of the laws of nature
    Can be contagious
    Lets loose ends fly everywhere

    Ultimately
    Complected
    But not really

    A simple push here
    A slight slip there
    One or two or three or more
    Of anything really

    When life just gets you down
    And keeps pushing you
    And kicking you
    And sneering at you

    And you're mind becomes so dark
    You don't even enjoy being there
    The smallest thoughts that cross your mind
    Start to disturb
    Even you

    When everything you look at
    Becomes a death trap
    Even if not for you

    When you'er so frustrated with life
    That it takes every bit of physical and mental strength
    To hold it together

    When you're so lost in darkness
    You're shaking with uncertainty

    Perhaps
    It doesn't seem so
    Stupid
    So
    Childish
    So
    Purposeless

    If not for the people that I would hurt
    It probably wouldn't

      We all struggle with depression when things go wrong; it helps to forcefully remind yourself that "this too shall pass"; that bad events are temporary;; that better times are just around the corner.

    You wisely are writing about it.....writing about pain helps...

    remember that your depression simply shows that you are capable of deep emotions and that you care; these are noble character attributes....

      This piece takes me back, to a time when the earth seemed eerily better then the sky. I believe at some point in everyone's lives there comes a time when things just become so overwhelming that giving up on it all just seems simpler.
    This piece reminds me of an old Irish Proverb my grandfather told me when I was going through hard times.. "There's an abundance of hope in the sea, but none in the grave."
    Nicely done.
