Suicide Note - A Prose -

The razor blade held to his wrist shows pain, 
mourning, and anything else. 
You see, he just wants someone to understand him,
care for him, and love him as their own.
His mother and father argue over the tiniest things.
 
Cut one starts, he doesn't feel the relief yet.
Peers and students tease him for being bubbly and happy. 
But no one has seen this dark and twisted part of his mind.
 
Cut two stings just a bit, a sting from a wasp. 
His friends don’t care, they have their own mediocre lives to deal with.
 
Cut number three murders the emotional pain.
No one cares that he does this.
Everyone presses on in their own lives,
paying taxes and making love.

He grabs his father’s pistol from under his parents’ bed.
He writes this letter, and then pulls the trigger.

    The message of the poem is that your hero needs to find a manual job. The harder the job is, the better. Congrats on your win. G.

    Wow! I remembered someone special. Someone who did the same thing. Who felt unloved and unworthy. If we still have all the time in the world to share the joy, love and care to others, just do it! Sometimes, people tend to end their lives if they feel worthless and that's a crucial part of human nature. I so love this! Congrats, Christian! More power! Love,love,love! :-) - Den

    So sad. Never a good reason for someone to end their life. Things can always change and God always cares, even when circumstances are continually rough and a person doesn't feel his presence. Very emotional read. Congratulations on your win!

    A very sad look at this kind of emotional pain. Very fitting subject for the contest. Congrats on the win :)

    Christian---Impressive, yet heart-felt write; I am sure many people can relate to these feelings. Teenagers searching for acceptance or people with mental health issues should read this. I think it would help them. Thanks for sharing the hotline numbers in the event that someone has these feelings! Julie :-)
