VOICESHARES POEM ENTRY - SUICIDE IS NOT AN OPTION!

in poetry •  2 years ago  (edited)


A spiral appears going down
Center slowly turns around

Looking upward into mind
All the while, nothing sublime

Dark oppressive, seems no way out
Where's the bell, to stop this bout

Inside the head many fears, and doubts
Pressure increases, building darkest of clouds

Mental deaths happened, so many times
Cursed by body's health, or all in the mind

Thoughts flashing and darting, there is no relief
Unable to reason, the wish, is only to leave

Shoes come off, feet touch the earth
Finding out really, what grounding is worth

Slowly the cloud is drained away
Sitting and swaying, nothing to say

Negative charge gone to ground
Welcomed relief, that was found

Sitting, breathing slowly, being reflective
The big picture appears, changing perspective

Unknown sourced motivation, but easy adoption
Result reveals, suicide is not an option

Original poem by @bilbop Images and quote below sourced from DuckDuckGo Images.

Suicide does not end the chances of life getting worse.
Suicide eliminates the possibility of it ever getting better

Nice poem.
I loved the quote at the end :)

My pleasure @rahul.stan. I appreciate having the opportunity made available.

Great share, thank you. Suicide is one of the most harrowing aspects of our mortality. It is a brutal choice, one that offends the basic sensibilities of humanity. We must cultivate a powerful compassion for those dealing with depression and suicidal urges, as well as their loved ones. I appreciate you breaching this uncomfortable yet vital topic. Have an awesome day.

You are most welcome @d-pend. I agree, to cultivate compassion and also enable it's perception to those depressed and with suicidal urges, is at first glance a seemingly formidable task.
However, we are the change on the upward spiral, leading by example. We are...EverBetter.
Thanks @d-pend, wholeness and balanced vibrations to you as well.

@bilbop my elder, wisest wizard of them all,
Universe heard my cry, you answered the call.
I seldom mention the fact that, I had despaired,
The universe sent many that I saw too cared.
I am grateful for the resonance and equilibrium,
Balance with myself, lifting others like helium.
Sometimes I forget, but I'll always truly know,
The universe provides, and I can feel the flow.
I'm glad you shared this, to remind me to show,
How glad I am to recognize you as one, my bro.

Strange disturbance that I sensed
Knowing you cant sit the fence
Express in humor how you feel
Shining a spotlight for the reveal
Others know and joke a bit
Also telling 'bout greedy shit
Platform skewed going downhill
Stay in the flow keepin it real
I got your back and you've got mine
whatever flows we've got the sublime

Great entry and a lovely poem! You did I nice job with the pictures and the formatting as wel!!!!!

Thank you for the kind words. I appreciate your support and encouragement @kus-knee.

Beautiful presentation!

I liked the reference to grounding to get rid of negative charges here.
I love walking bare-feet. Do you too?

Grounding is a very good energy balancer. I am barefoot most of the time and love it. My home has a stone floor so it is easy to stay grounded and my feet have thick soles from years of barefooting. :D

Can't agree more! Good to connect with you.

Good to connect with you also. Perhaps we'll meet again poetically on voiceshares or ???
