No Suicide

No reason to concoct clever and corrupt schemes to make me see you.
I watch you anyway.
Do not go to extremes that exfoliate the energy that you conceive.
I already believe in you.
Please, do not plot panic ploys to penetrate the world's persistence against you.
You have the distance to overcome it all.
No need to destroy yourself or future so someone can feel your pain when
some of us already do.
It is pointless to define your determination as unsuccessful when you were the sperm that made it.
Speaks for itself.
You are beautifully made, with details that no one else has or will possess beyond imagination,
So suicide would be not only ridding the world of a gift but
yourself of it,
so please...allow your light to shine,
it could never do so without some shades of darkness.

    An excellent piece..I just recently, several days ago from this actual date persuaded an old high school class-mate to not commit suicide...her thing was that she was tired of being single, not married, and not established...so, after texting her for awhile she came back to her senses...we basically need to let them know that we all have hard times...and troubles don't last always....I feel as though you said it all here..which is an awesome write!!

    Wow...so you saved a life Ink! That is BIG!!! I can relate to how she felt tho not being suicidal...sometimes it takes a break down to rebuild. She was lucky to have you and I appreciate you sharing this story...be blessed.

    I was checking out a couple of your poems and came across this one. I really like it! "you have the distance to overcome it all" love that line, as if somebody taking a running start to hurdle over something. Beautiful piece

    Thank you Patrick...I believe we all have the distance to overcome obstacles but we first have to believe. I appreciate your feedback.
