Poems

Please, Don’t take your life

“Sometimes even to live is an act of courage.”

Seneca

Please

Don’t take your life

 

Despite the moments

Filled with despair

There is power

Brooding

In your gut

In your hands

In your feet

In your heart

In your soul

 

Please

Don’t take your life

 

Despite the loneliness

We are all

One

One mind

One flesh

One thought

One world

 

Please

Don’t take your life

 

Despite the grim distance

There is hope

Rushing to you

In change

In willpower

In life

In love

In your beautiful existence

 

Please

Don’t take your life

 

Despite death

Hunting our breaths

You are here

A divine wonder

Colouring the seconds

With your vibrant frequency

 

Don’t take your life

Please
