Was It Really The Only Choice?

Was It Really The Only Choice?

A Poem by Patricia(:
"

A teenage boy around 14 makes the wrong mistake& picks up a blade..

"
Cold metal blade in his hand.
Swiftly moving against his own pale skin.

Blood peaks out from his wounds,
slowly traveling down his arm.

His breathing calm,
not one hint of fear.

He knows exactly what he's doing.
Yet he doesn't stop..

He knows what will happen,
he knows all the pain his friends & family will endure.

The tears they'll shed,
all because of one idiotic mistake.

Yet he doesn't stop!
It's as if he didn't care.

He feels it's the only choice,

these thoughts won't leave his mind.
This is the only way to end his thoughts of suicide..

Each day they appear,
haunting him each night..

He could never figure out why.
Yet it didn't matter it'll all soon meet it's end.

No more tears will this boy have to shed..
It'll all be over soon,
he starts to feel faint.

The end is near..
He collapses on the floor,
he watches the blood flow from his arm.

He can't help but smile,
his thoughts will finally be at peace & so will he..

Enjoy the poem, sorry it was morbid. I was up late last night, then a thought of my recent friend who passed away came to mind..This isn't the situation he was put it, yet I do promise to write a poem in his honor of the situation he was in. Do enjoy the poem, feel free to express your thoughts about it, may they be good, or bad.

Such a dark topic, that just pours emotion. I like that you mentioned that the knows his death will hurt his family and friends, and that he acknowledges that. [Some] People find suicide to be a selfish act, and I like that you touch up on that. Very well written.
