If Only...

Ok, so I found this "poem" that I wrote a couple years ago when I was really depressed. Is it any good? What do y'all think? I don't normally write.

As I lay here thinking,
Words come to me
from a favorite song:
Suicide is painless.

If only it were that easy.
If only I had the courage
to pull the trigger.

It could all end,
Just that easily.
But I don't have the courage,
I never have.

But if I did,
I wouldn't have to endure this pain.

Physical pain I could handle,
But this,
this is unbearable.
A constant war zone in my mine,
that's never ceasing,
an endless game.

If only I had the courage.
The courage to make it all end.

  • I'm not big into poetry, but personally, I find it kind of disturbing. I had a suicide in my family and it's a very, very difficult thing to endure. It's easy for the victim, but not for the survivors!

  • This is the OP- Like I said, I wrote this a few years ago, and yes at the time I was having suicidal thoughts, since then I have gotten help and am doing much better.
