Death for me

(READ THIS BEFORE READING THIS POEM! ! ! ! ! In no way or form am I telling you or anyone to kill themselves. My father stated it best when he said 'Suicide is a permenant solution to a temporary problem'. I have since gotten over my problems though it took time and now I enjoy life and if I was able to survive my trials I firmly believe you can to.)

To end our life as we know it
How to put that into words when one is a poet

To die for me is to be at peace
To go to sleep and let all pain cease

Three times now I have felt death's cold embrace
Three times now and never once did I witness God's or the devil's face

Though amazingly these times I died were not of my own will
Each time was because of the stress of life and how it has made me ill

I have now tried to die many times
Knowing that in the end I may have to atone for my crimes

But no matter how hard I would try
I never seemed able to die

The rope would snap
The blades did crap
Even the guns would have a crippling mishap

But through it all it never seemed to work out
And I would always be left with my heart full of sadness and doubt

But in the end the thing that I could never foresee
Was the one thing that kept killing me

The stress of this life and the emotions I feel
They caused me to obtain and heart condition that will never heal

But for those brief minutes I lay dead
I felt peace along with a deep sense of dread

For what would all those I care about say
When they came and found me dead the next day

As death reached out its hand I had to pull away
For I knew it was not my time and that I had to stay

So now I must push through the pain this life brings
Knowing at any moment Death may cut the last of my life's strings

So here I sit writing this poem
For all those who don't understand to hopefully show them

That for me death's experience wasn't so much going to heaven or hell
It was more about finding peace and serenity as far as I could tell

To have all pain and restlessness cease
Death to me is true the way to find ultimate peace

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
