Perhaps Not

Perhaps Not

A Poem by Danny J.H.

a short poem about life and death


I see the world

They say it is good

I do not see this

Am I the only one?


The hollows whisper to me

They tell me to run

“From what?” I ask

They say from myself


I sprint through the darkness

My naked body, wet from the puddles

The trees are cackling

I am crying


I am dreaming I say

To myself as I stumble

But I know I am not

This hell is life


I think that the rationality

Of suicide is clear

I have no steak left here

Perhaps death will give me purpose


Or perhaps not…
