Suicide is NEVER a solution.

Stillness in the air,
As I enter the street,
A gloomy disposition,
A downcast mood,
Miserable residents stay in a house,
For their son had taken his life away.

Love failure,
A reason that didn't deserve a life,
A problem that would have had a solution,
But life was thrown away,
Its infinitesimal value unknown to the common man.

How can something so cruel,
With the capacity to snatch away a life,
Be called love?
Was it selfishness, was it jealousy,
Was it overexpectations?
Nobody will ever know,
For the problem has been buried,
Ever since the heart ceased to beat.

Is unconditional,
Giving and forgiving,
A bridge to good things in life,
And a barrier to none,
Dreams flourish,
Goals with visions are set,
Potentials are unleased,
And the true self is awakened.
That is love.

Suicide can never be justified,
Leave a note or record a speech before you die,
Let the reason be debt or the reason be enstrangled ties,
Let it be love, let it be hatred,
Let it be loneliness, let it be a dead end,
But the reason is indeed a mere shadow,
When the sun rises and reaches its peak,
When the problem reveals its intricacies and therefore its flaws,
There, one will see a solution,
And the solution will NEVER be suicide.



  1. My heart goes out to such people you know...poor souls were so helpless that it lead them to this... wish they had just one soul nearby who wanted to hear their silent pleas..maybe this would not have happened at all..
    Very touching post

    1. Thank you Me! :)
      As true as it is that they are looking for companionship, I wonder how many of them would really open up to a stranger..

    2. I agree to you...but then you know sometimes opening up to a stranger is better than opening up to someone you know as there you don't have the fear of losing anything at all!!

  2. Wow, AaeKay.. this is such a heart touching poem.. true,whatever it be, there is never a problem so grave that one has to take away one's own life.. wonderfully written :)

  3. The reasons are different, if it is physical pain then one can understand, but for all the other reasons - its just foolishness.

    1. True. :)

      Thank you for stopping by my blog and for your kind comment!

  4. I agree with you.
    This is such a beautiful, meaningful poem.

    1. Thank you for your kind comment Anisha! :)

  5. You have this wonderful capability of writing about anything, anything at all, in the form of a poem. :) I really admire that. Liked this one! Can totally realize what you mean to convey.

    Keep writing! :)

    1. Thank you very much for the compliment Ashna!
      Really appreciate it!! :)

  6. yes suicide is never a solution. its for the people who are weak by heart and cant face situation,such ppl need support and care to deal with trying times.
    well composed poem :)

    1. I don't think that they are weak by heart, they are too emotionally charged up to analyze their situation and react, thus believing death to be the ultimate escape. I don't know what happens to their souls after they die, but my granma always says that till God is willing to take your soul and reincarnate you, it will always be roaming around in search of peace. :O

      Thank you :))

  7. wow! You express beautifully!
    and indeed a perfect title.

    loved this piece :)
