Suicidal Strength (National Poetry Writing Month #20)   Leave a comment

There’s a fucked up strength in suicide
That no one seems to realize.
Slaying a monster that only you can see.

Or being your own hero,
Rescuing your self from the darkness
Because no one else could.
Because you thought no one would.

Suicide isn’t weak, or pathetic.
But just sad; misguided.
People will help you write your story.
So don’t close your book
Before its done.

-Shaman Romney 2016
