Poem - It's not a choice
They is always choice Not black and not white But grey alternatives They is always choice
They is always choice Not an one easy Not an one hard Both have benefits and inconveniences
Non-judgement is needed For the freedom of choice Love is needed For the freedom of thoughts
Someone see no choice Help is needed They is always an alternative They is always choice
Choices can be life changing Choices can changes others life They is no best choice They is your choice
We could think it is a choice But no, this time it isn’t It is not a choice She didn't choose
Not a choice Killing our self is not a choice Brain under vicious circle An act when one see no choice
Suicide is not a choice Even if they are some Solutions are not seen anymore
She didn't choose to let you
This poem is dedicated to a little boy who lost his mother in the end of September 2018 and to all the people touched by near or far from the drama of a suicide.
It's a paradox for me to write about death while I'm welcoming a new baby boy, in the mean time it's my present reality.
