a permanent solution to an unwanted existence

suicide is not
a coward’s way out.

can you call
someone that has
had enough
and is willing
to end their life
a coward for doing
the last act?
or call them
selfish?

the selfish
are the ones
that remain and
cannot accept
the loss.

we never know
what anyone else
is dealing with.

and wearing their
shoes
for a day
only spreads
fungus.

it takes
bravery
to stare down
finality
and not
flinch.

cowardice
is letting
yourself
suffer
needlessly.

cowardice
is judging
someone else
because you cannot
fathom eternity
in silence.

no
the suicides
are not
cowards.

they were done
and moved on.

life is
an immeasurable
weight
forced upon us
controlled by
chemicals
seeking joy
in a world
that is constantly
falling apart.

every breath
is suicidal
as it leads
to death.

or something.

it is all
meaningless
in the end.
