I Thought of You | [POETRY]

With this month being Suicide Prevention/Awareness Month, I am reblogging my posts and poetry that deal specifically with suicide, as well as those things that often result in suicide such as (but NOT limited to) depression, bullying, etc.

This is a poem I wrote after I read a blogger’s post about wanting to die. Please share it with someone you are thinking of that is dealing with this RIGHT NOW.

Poetry_i_thought_of_you_001

I saw you THOUGHT of suicide,

I saw you wish you died.

Your loneliness and brokenness,

Were all you had inside.

The noose, the pills, the razors,

Sing songs OF sweet respite.

I know my friend, I’ve been there,

I tried too, to end my life.

So hope I send my warrior,

My majestic, fighting friend.

You will not give up that easily,

You’ll fight it to the end.

When life, and friends, and family,

Jeer and taunt YOU to the last.

Hang onto life you solid rock,

Someone needs you now, not in their past.

  1. Hi Chris
    Thinking of you, hope your hanging in. When my life gets challenging,as it is right now, I dig my heals in and remind myself God doesn’t give me anything I can’t overcome. Often not just overcome but from the learning process and continued faith, I walk out the other side better off. You have my email, I’m serious write me if you need to talk. You are making huge steps in the right direction in challenging times. Keep spending time on your knees and asking for direction. He’ll carry you if required.
    Hugs
