I did not plan this for my life

I never considered it’s severing knife

To cut deep, in pains turmoil

Struggling each day, in tears and toil


Appearing to be a person of vigour

I was not to know the hurts that trigger

Dislocating my visions, and my dreams

Somehow, rendering me powerless it seems


The brightness of the sky, no longer a delight

The warmth of sunshine, no longer a sight

The touch of a loved one, no longer a motivation

The laughs that linger, no longer an inspiration


The nights hinder, with thoughts too merciless

The mornings begin, without the nights rest

My energy consumed, by remaining alert

Weakness robs me, with my strength it flirts


I attempt profusely, to focus on affirmation

While my lack of drive, saps my concentration

My body so tired from fighting this battle

My mind so consumed with thoughts that rattle


I was once so independent, now a burdened soul

I was once vivacious, now a gapping hole

My footsteps of resolve, determination and pride

Have been buried from my being, somewhere inside


Thankful for all I’ve had, that I cannot stay for

Im grateful for family and friends, I implore

to remember me in times of love and laughter

remember not to forget me like this, after


Forgive me, for leaving you this way

Forgive me, for the unspoken say

Forgive me, for this suicide choice

Despair and agony defeated my fight, my voice
