Quitting

Knife -
Quit
Life.

Contemplating simple acts
Yet so hard
Such strength required

Driven or pursued
Pushed or pulled
Coward or not?

this from a person who has contemplated killing herself.. there is always life beyong sorrow!

I agree with black coffee.
Much more courageous to stay
and fight.

Life is a pendulum that swings. It takes one from sorrow to joy. It takes courage to wait out the sorrow.

I really like the questions in the last stanza. Makes me really think.
