A Poem by sette
"

this is the hardest work i ever wrote

"
The first time I saw you.
acting like a clown,
too much happiness radiated
in your young face.

I said to myself,
how lucky is this young man
to have everything in life.

Looks, Intelligence and even
breeding.
He has a long way to go,
anyway he is just 16.

After three years,
I have received a call,
someone was crying on the other line.

It was the father,
his son had found another road
to take,

I can't understand,
I don't have the words to comfort,
all I did was to cry.

Why? Why? Why?
the only letter you left 
was for your dog who can't even read!

Was it enough to hurt your parents 
like that/
There were many confusing thoughts
in your mind,

You feel you are alone
in not sharing how sad you became.

Your last words before,
you put the bullet to your head was
"Dad, don't worry i will be in a peaceful world"

In a peaceful world?
where there are still no answers up to now,
why at 19, you decided to end your life?

why? why? why?

thanks donna for the wonderful comment
One very perceptive and to-the-point examination.
In the end, of course--other than the pain and bewilderment--we are left with only questions.
A devastating piece of work, S!
