The best thing you can do about a suicide is understanding it.
The boy opens the door and walks by his mom
his mom says "how was school"
He doesnt respond
he walks silently to his room
His mom turns away in sadness
"its dinner time Kurt" she yells up the stairs.
He walks slowly down the steps
Hiding something in his hand as he puts it in his pocket
His mother is setting the table
Putting meat on his plate
He sits down unto the seat
not touching his food
"is there something wrong with it?" his mom asks
He doesnt look at her
"talk to me. why have you been ignoring me" she repeats.
He gets up off the chair and walks outside
Walking into the woods as his mom runs out
"get back here where are you going"
Every living thing dies alone." he writes in white on a tree in there back yard
He throws the rope over the toughest branch
He steps up unto a little chair
Tying the rope around his neck
The chair falls
His mom worries in panic
She cant find him anywhere
She waits up all night
The Next Morning"
She walks out to the garden
Looking up at a tree
She sees the fallen chair from behind a tall bush
Picking up the chair
Seeing the thing she never thought would have happened
She falls to her knees
A tear falls from her cheek
Reading the words on the tree
Every living thing dies alone"
She untangles him from the tree and holds him
Talks gentle to him
Something she hasnt done in a while
Now grasping the meaning behind what he has done
The best thing you can do about a suicide is understanding the meaning behind it.
