Suicide

Low Road Led By Black
Potential vanished within the 
dark
Flame extinguished instantly
Lights gone dark-response to 
oppression
A wink in the span of time
Uniquely minute in sliver of 
existence
Unable to overcome
Forced to take the downward 
sloped path
Than attempt the climb to 
heights
Where the lights stay on
Where the dark has been 
banished
Where the slivers and winks are 
eternal
Where the oppression fades 
into support
Where cowards on the low path
Envy the reapers of rewards as 
they spiral down
Into depths so dark so deep
There is no escape but the cold 
kiss of the black
The final weak measure spent
To stave off the pressure
To take the easy way out
To leave all behind in selfish 
cowardice
