Can anyone really understand, the act of suicide,
to the departed is it surrender or a badge of pride?
No positive can be associated with this one-way trip,
that gouges the heart from kin, with one massive rip.
Are those who commit this act, banned from eternity,
or do they dismiss heaven as part of our modernity?
Many know of someone, who took their own life,
maybe a friend, parent, child, husband, or wife.
Could life be so hopeless to anyone, beyond repair,
no viable alternative for them, no longer to care?
Let’s put out the word to all, that no life’s worth ending,
suicide isn’t a social media topic, we want to see trending.
A poem by David Andre (Kuhn) Davison
