Surviving after suicide attempts

Life is like an everlasting 
examination
Testing us in both 
triumph and torturing 
times
Honoring the humble, 
humbling the pride
Yet death have honored 
none

Sometimes smiles change 
their shapes
Sometimes lives lose their 
styles
Challenging 
circumstances might 
rename our names
Yet athletes faithfully 
finish their miles

When we lose our loved 
ones
Is there a real reason to 
still carry on?,
When we lose our 
businesses
Do we still stand firm and 
carry on?

In pain people search for 
a rope
We desperately try to 
hang ourselves
Several suicide attempts, 
but ropes untie 
themselves
Hurtful moments for 
torture carries on at or 
away from home

We seek death to find 
peace
Yet our maker 
demolishes death to 
show us love
We think the end is 
worth the risk
Yet losing life quenches 
more hope
Look and see
Surviving after suicide 
attempts
Shows love beyond 
borders a human eye can 
see.
It's thus a perfect 
present
Hence i call it a perfect gift
