A Poem for you....

Before You Kill Yourself
by Marigrace Iodice

Your mind’s made up
You can’t take it anymore,
Life’s impossible
And suicide’s the answer to Heaven’s Door!
Before you kill yourself
Ask the 15-year-old,
Who tried to electrocute himself.
He lived, but now…
He must carry on
With both of his arms gone!

What about jumping?
Come see Jack, who survived his leap
From a 10 story building.
He lived, but now…
He’ll always need care,
He’s a vegetable—a mind like a cabbage,
He lives in a fog,
With irreversible brain damage.
But worst of all…
He knows he use to be normal!

Come see the All American Football player
Who thought he was cool and bought a gun
And shot himself in the head at 21.
He thought it would be easy
And without any harm,
He lived, but now…
He can’t feel his legs and has a useless arm!
He lost his dream, his vision and his hearing on one side
But he lived
Through his attempt at suicide!

Then there was this Prom Queen
Who was left comatose
With extensive brain damage
From her drug overdose.
She mixed some alcohol with some pills
It took awhile…but it definitely kills.
First, you’re in excruciating pain
Your eyes roll back & your skin turns yellow
It’s not a pretty sight and it’s a hell of a way to go!

Who will cut the rope from where you hang down?
Who will identify your body after you’ve drowned?
Who will scrape your brains from the ceiling?
Or clean the blood off the carpet?
A cleaning crew will refuse the job
But somebody’s got to do it!

Oh…and that carefully worded suicide note is no help
For the unending pain that is forever felt!
Who will it be? Your Sister? Your Mother?
Your Father? Your Brother?
Those who love you will never recover!

They’ll have to live with regret and with all the guilt
Along with all those unanswered questions.
They love you…but down deep inside they hate you
For thinking only about yourself and your life ending decision!

There are people who can help you
Before you decide to put your life to an end,
Call a hotline…or call a doctor
Call the hospital…or call a friend.
Call a minister…or call a priest
Call a family member…or call the police!!
They will help you
And they’ll give you hope
When your will is down
And you can no longer cope!

You say you don’t want to be stopped
Are you definitely sure
You want to commit suicide?
Because if you fail
You’re gonna wish that you were left to die!
So…Before You Kill Yourself…
Suicide is not always the answer,
Nor is it always successful
Consider your actions
Because living with the results are dreadful!
