Euthanize Me -------------------------------------------
In the dark, stare out the window
cause the pain is without end
And you're praying and you're hoping
for the day your mind will mend
from the darkness and the nightmares
from the horror in your eyes
from the sleepless nights and trauma
as the hope inside you dies.
But they say that euthanasia
is a selfish thing to do
that it means that you're a coward
since you couldn't see life through
And the ones who spew this bullshit
never felt the way you do
and can't find any compassion
for a person such as you.
Instead they have only judgement
and say more pain lies ahead
endless burning in hellfire
for the pained already dead
Seeking to escape their misery
finding only more instead
But you can't escape their fingers
and you can't escape your dread.
Okay, so I've been here so many times, I understand the Religious expectations being thrown at you to keep your life, yet it all seems like bullshit to keep you here, feeling all the shit that is going on in the world. Seeing it every day just getting worse. Can't see a solution in the horizon. Gloom, a heavy fog bearing down on you and everything you do. The brief glimpses of happiness and the will to stride on muddled by constant circumstances ailing your pursuit of happiness and a content life. The way you have worded this all into a few stanzas blows my mind. Reading this just puts me right next to you at that window staring out, feeling what you're feeling. You truly do dance with the words. I want to thank you for the time you have put into your works and commenting on others as well. People like you make this community so awesome!
I read the title and thought, "Oh great! Another suicide poem!"
So I read it.
And it started off quite sad and depressing, but at the end it made me want to eat some ice cream...so I am going to press the "Post this Critique" button and run off to Leatherbys and get a hot fudge sundae.
