Micro poem – Micro life

Finally,
it’s good
to end
this story;

I shared
far enough
from me,
my agony.

Imagine
I lived
just a little bit
more:

maybe
I could have
changed history
in whole,

leading
a nation
into an agonistic
salvation.

A decade prolongation

I am hearing
about suicidal feeling
from every corner,
people living on the border
of living and dead
being depressed.

I am also seeing
people monthly leaving,
but never disappearing
in suicide attempts.

I guess I’m not healing,
but I don’t get the feeling
of regularly trying to kill
the self.

I – once I tried it,
more than a decade behind it,
and I never tried it
again.

Because
when I tried it,
I was serious about it,
and I already died in it
and I cannot be revived
again.
