Reversing Suicide

suicide_quote

 

Whatever you do Please do not give up. Removing yourself from the world will not make it any better. Find whatever it is keeping you alive and hold on to it. Think about the people who will miss you and all the lives that will be affected by you being gone. Give yourself a chance. Someone out there needs you. Think about someone close to you and what you mean to them, vice versa. Sometimes you have to fight through depression and suicide for other people if not yourself. There is light at the end of the tunnel. You just have to live in order to see it. I may not know you but I love you and I am praying for you. 

 

Reversing Suicide

In the midst of my distress, light glimmers on the edge of my pain

It illuminates something within me, a piece of hope planted in the center of my darkness

At the very core of my last breath, it’s glow called out to me

Beckoning

Had it come seconds later, I’d already be traveling through space on the other side of life

Life

Maybe I won’t see the rainbow now

But sooner or later it shall arise

I have in its colors

I reverse my thoughts of riding on the back of the darkness

Instead, I grab ahold of the fading light inside my soul

The part of me that still has the will to live
