I Rejoice


This is a poem I dedicate

to my dear friend the reject

choosing to seal your own fate

From this life you choose to eject

Before you make that mistake

just take the time to ponder

on the hearts you’ll break

if you were to go under

It’s too easy to think negative

and to say “I don’t wanna live”

My dear friend the misled

you won’t be better off dead

Though it may seem strange

or even hard to swallow

All you need is change

Think of a better tomorrow

Because life still goes on

my dear friend the survivor

The struggle may be far from won

but deep inside you are a fighter

Suicide ain’t the cure

That’s for sure

Please believe me

It’s such a lonely ride

and too soon for you to be

leaving for the other side
