C’mon! Don’t DIY.

“The act of suicide is a blatant show of disregard to those left behind.”

I have thought on these words and I have found them true. Suicide is the worst way to tell those who love you that you hate them. It is a selfish and arrogant strategy employed in letting everyone know that you’re capable of making your own decisions. It is a cowardly show of surrender to your demons. It is a blasphemous act of daring God and taking the life that you did not create. It is an ignorant act of believing that other lives do not hang on yours. It is a stupid act of seeking false instant gratification. It is an ungrateful act of telling life that you learnt nothing from it, and so you opted for death.

Yes, it is DIY but no, it does not mean you’re smart, creative or artistic.

The voices in your head are lonely on the other side of life, because it’s lonelier there. Do not listen to them when they tell you to come over. Please learn to share your burdens; it’s what the shoulders were created for. Please learn to accept the tissues, it’s what the trees were created for. And please learn to live and love, it’s what you were created for.

  • What a well written post.

    Mozart would be so proud of you, the way you paint these words.

    Perfect reply to any suicide note ever written.

    👏👏👏 Ever deep , ever beautiful writing.

  • I am sorry, I wasn’t thinking of others when I did it, I wasn’t even thinking of God, yes I wasn’t. I was at the end of my life, I was fed up, I just wanted to end it all. Call me selfish,stupid, ungrateful, attention seeking, I don’t care. You call it a ‘stupid act of seeking self gratification’ I call it an end to an unending misery. It may not be smart or artistic or creative but it is BOLD. And that is the boldest thing I have ever done, I’d rather blatantly disregard those I’m leaving behind than be a complete shadow of myself, I’m useless to them then.

    Just thought I’d share the other side of the story. ☺

  • Lovely poem, lovely reply. I have my quote for the year lol “Please learn to share your burdens; it’s what the shoulders were created for. “
