Suicidal

 
Be honest with yourself
How many of you rolled your eyes
When you saw the title
Then didn't read the poem?

So think carefully
How many of you rolled your eyes
Read the first two lines
But didn't read the rest?

Another thought
How many of you did not roll your eyes
Had no emotional reaction at all
And deliberately ignored the poem?

Consider yourself
How many felt empathy or compassion enough
To rush to the poem in case you could help
We'll give it 24 hours and see how many reads
Am I a cynic or a realist?

We shouldn't need to ponder this one
Haw many people who knew you and your struggles
Would put pen to paper and encourage you to do it
Nobody would ever do that, not in public, right?
Nobody would double down and compliment this, right?

Think about this!
Such cruel and evil individuals actually exist
The really sad part is if the person committed suicide
They'd Celebrate and laugh, not giving a fuck
And a few supporter would join in the party
This kind would feel no guilt, too busy opening the champers
Do you know or believe this kinda scum exist?

I regret to inform you they do
You will all know one or two
Even though you might not yet be aware
Isn't it rather strange that this kinda pond life
Are the very sort who would never kill themselves?
