One word suicide letter: Acceptance
A queer guy walked into a hardware store,
Bought six bottles of paint remover,
Died before he got to the fourth,
And the guestioning found in his one word suicide letter,
Daddy’s little rich girl goes to her room,
Pours out her heart and soul to her four walls,
Opens a jar and takes a blade,
Found on the floor covered with blood,
And the unresolved puzzle in her one word suicide letter,
Boy of sixteen heard his a father,
His girlfriend is pregnant and they don’t have a clue,
He takes his dad’s gun he knows what He want’s to do,
And before pulling the trigger he whisper’s,
Girl of fifteen heard she was strange,
She had peircings and didn’t know how to change,
She just couldn’t go back to their faces,
And left a note lying by her unconscious body saying it all in one word,
Misunderstood and deprived of their love,
Modern day Romeo and Modern day Juliet,
Found themselves in a ditch covered with mud,
Leaving trail of naked footprints to uncover their one word letter,
Boy of eighteen heard he didn’t pass,
So he climbed in his car and opened up the gas,
And on the foggy window He wrote his one word suicide letter,
That stunned the whole town,
The question all these young people had,
Was written for the one’s left behind to solve,
To put the bodies and pieces together,
And found acceptance was the cause,
Because too little made them give up too soon…
| I'm not a cutter and I don't understand why this has an appeal. I do think there is less regard for life now that ever before and it shouldn't be. As a student in counseling I was warned how young people did not understand the finality of death. The drama they seek is at hand and no realizing how death gives them no more chance is not ruminated before their actions take them from the planet.|
You've done a fine job of reminding us who is at risk and why. And if it's for those who seek some wisdom along the way, it works and works well. Thanks for sharing.

Not quite sure what to say and that's a compliment coming from the girl who's usually got enough complaints to fill a town!|
Crikey, it's just so stuunningly simple and so stunningly true...and how each of those single words can make a suicide note on their own and together. The different scenarios are all so true for people around the world who have never been 'right' in the world according to other people's beliefs...
It's particulary poignant if you've been there tried that...and for exactly the same reason...

And I thought that maybe the world and the people surrounded me would be better off without me there. In reality, I was facing such an inner battle that I was giving up on myself. Life is worth living. There are many trials and tribulations...and all one can do is keep focusing on the light and never fall lost in the dark.|
All of these scenerios really showed how wide your mind can expand. And this proves that you have talent. Each scenerio was truthful and could be a reality.
Great job on this one!

This would be only the second poem on here that has made me speechless. I have nothing else I can say. OMG! Beyond powerful! Whoa. I'm just going to stop because there are no words to say how great this was!||| Posted on 2006-02-22 00:00:00 | by nicklacymatthew | [ Reply to This ] || I think what youve written about is something many teens face, acceptance is really all we need and when we dont get it we feel like killing ourselves. all the scenarious: ppl who didnt find acceptance among their peers and realised that they couldnt live with this and that just killed them. It was simply an amazing piece, i like how in the end they joined the stories and found the answer, i suggest you read the following poem by another user, it relates but in a different way: http://www.eliteskills.com/z/90362|

I'm never speechless..not usually, it's a good write
lots of luv

it's very very welll written...great concept...and it drew me in, write from the title to the last line.
very true...it made me feel sad...
i think that your rhyming went a little awry in some places, but that can be fixed. besides, it hardly makes a difference to me because this is such a brilliant write. totally one for the favs.
|| Posted on 2006-02-20 00:00:00 | by Mud | [ Reply to This ] || Wow..what an awsome write..stanza after stanza it just got better..i liked the idea you had with putting all the words together: "Why Did You Never Accept Me??"..Awsome idea..each scenerio was so true and sad..it has a liitle story so anyone can relate..i loved it..|
And some people say they don't care about being accepted just to sound cool..but deep inside their dying to be be loved by everyone and have the perfect life..
lovely write keep up the awsome work!

This is a strong piece and very well written
This poem can help mend a lot of broken Hearts
Please if you get a chance Please take a look at some of my writes and let me know what you think
|| Posted on 2006-02-20 00:00:00 | by Ronswords | [ Reply to This ] || This poem had a lot of meaning into it. To the editors eye there are mistakes in spelling and what have you but who doesn't make such mistakes. Anyways I like the situations, and the outcome... good work|
If I were to grade this I would give it
|| Posted on 2006-02-20 00:00:00 | by MaskedRapper | [ Reply to This ] || This is a great piece. I thought that alot of people could possibly relate, because they have attempted suicide because they felt that their friends and parents didn't accept them.|
|| Posted on 2006-02-20 00:00:00 | by lebeauvide | [ Reply to This ] || wow, I love this poem. I love all the different situations and how you describe them. all of them are believable and actually are sad and make you feel sory. What i really liked though was how you made the "why did you never accept me?". I think thats really creative and original. its also cool how u kinda made it rhyme and kinda didn't and it still flowed. I really like that. this is really good.||| Posted on 2006-02-20 00:00:00 | by Faith_Disease | [ Reply to This ] || definetly a favorite addition i love it ...|
