I knew someone that took their life last year, we shared family, loved ones that are hurting now in her absence. When I heard the news I made this photo and wrote down a poem, you will find that at the bottom of this post.
I don’t get it, I can’t wrap my head around the level of sadness, loneliness, the utter feeling of defeat, that there is no one to turn to, no one to understand and help makes sense of what is going on inside.
I do understand that there is something in every one, a level of strength. Some can go through anything without shedding a tear while others seem to lack the strength. Some how it was left out of their makeup, their composition when they were created. It’s no ones fault, I just wish there was a way we could know, know something that would alert us, tell us, that someone we love feels this is the only answer.
I remember when she was born, I remember her mothers laugh, I would see her from time to time at family get togethers throughout the years, and when I think of her gone, I can’t believe it, it hurts to imagine the pain. The pain she felt, the pain that is now left behind.
Sadness creeps in
at what point does one let it take over So much
So much that the weight of the rock on ones shoulders crushes
That you chose to leave it behind
I cannot fathom the thoughts to bring a human to such despair
