IF YOU

If you hang yourself...I wonder if your soul will see your body swing?
If you poison yourself...I wonder if you will smell the poison in creeping in your veins?
If you shoot yourself...I wonder if you die with your eyes open to witness the carnage without being able to speak?
If you Jump....will your brain still process thought as they remove your pieces??
 
You see it takes approximately six minutes for your brain to die, via lack of oxygen...Does it take that long for your conscious too??
Bone,Hair and Skin take up to 12 hours to cease to be...do you feel pain?
 
Your not clinically dead until your brain stops...Your lungs can fail, your organs can shut down....Tendons snap....your heart can break...All your bones can turn to dust...but your not dead....There is life...Lines....little blips that defy all that surrounds it, all that it cannot repair, but yet it is the simplest little line...it means that you are there, somewhere in there...Quiet but very present
