‘Suicide’ by Jack Eadon

As I sit here and wonder why
Wonder why I should want to die
I wonder what would become of me
But most of all, my family

 

For though it’s hard for them to live
With my in-ability to give
It would also be hard for them to live
If into my desire to die I were to give

 

My family are all to me
All that I wish to see
I may not be all that much them
But they are all I live to see

 

For though it’s hard for them to live
With my in-ability to give
It would also be hard for them to live
If into my desire to die I were to give

 

Yet how can I live
If I cannot give
That which I promised
A life full of happiness

 

For though it’s hard for them to live
With my in-ability to give
It would also be hard for them to live
If into my desire to die I were to give

 

For I promised my wife
Upon pain of my life
That when we were married
I’d keep her in style

 

For though it’s hard for them to live
With my in-ability to give
It would also be hard for them to live
If into my desire to die I were to give

 

A promise I can’t fill
I was such a dill
A promise I made
My love, I do fail

 

For though it’s hard for them to live
With my in-ability to give
It would also be hard for them to live
If into my desire to die I were to give

 

So I sit here knowing why
Why I should want to die
Seeing my faults
Understanding the reason why

 

For though it’s hard for them to live
With my in-ability to give
It would also be hard for them to live
If into my desire to die I were to give

    Thanks Christine,

    It is hard work putting the thoughts onto paper in a legible manner. and portraying the meaning.

    Glad you found something in it to take away.

    “It would also be hard for them to live
    If into my desire to die I were to give”

    Not a truer word has been said! Excellent poem.
