About the Poem

This is a poem I wrote to scare my self from committing suicide. It has helped me through hard times. When ever I feel that the world is to scary to live in, I read this to myself.

Last

For everything there must come a last.

A last minute, a last hour, a last month, day, or year.

A last drink, a last coke, a last tequila, scotch, or beer.

A last love, a last heart, a last kiss, hug, or rage...

Or even the last words written on a page.

But the worst last thing is your last breath
because what is to follow will surely be your death.

this poem really got to me because i have a really good friend who has just recently become depressed and told me she really wanted to kill herself. i talked to her and she no longer wants to kill herself but still thinks suicide is the only way. and i am going to be by her side until the end of her depression. and of course i am going to give her this poem. Thanks.

I liked this poem in that the overall message is a positive one. Perhaps next time I'm feeling suicidal, I will think of your poem and wonder if I really want this to my last day, meal, conversation, etc.

I really liked this poem, as i do the rest of them, but mostly this one, we're all just afraid of death. cause we dont know whats there, maybe its just emptiness, or maybe its worse than what we are living now. thats what gets me through the day. not knowing. and thats it.

poems like this make me stop and think about life and why people do things to hurt others. but do they really mean to? but before you hurt someone again stop and read this poem. it makes sense. you never miss what you got till its gone. so dont lose anything. tell some one how you feel befor eits to late!

WoW. That is amazing, especially for all the people that actual think about suicide. It really makes you think, that all the things you usually do could be your last. Even if it isn't you that wants to kill yourself, if you die, anything could have been your last thing to ever do. Great Poem Azazel.

Sandy
I have been bi-polar and depressed for quite awhile since fighting breast cancer since 1998. This poem makes you think for sure.I have thought of my last breath but know in my heart that I have more of life to live and I dont want to end it yet.
LM
Loved your poem, more power to you!
ecstasy
I really like how I could relate to your feelings, and how you kept it so simple...since I know what a tough subject it is. 3 years ago one of my friends hung herself and after that all I need to think about is how many people were hurt emotionaly forever by it and all my thoughts of suicide disappear for a while.Well, I really enjoyed your poem thanx for posting it...I'll look back at it when I need help!
