This poem came out of a suicide attempt 10 years ago. I'm not sure if it came before or after, but this poem showed me a glimpse of my future if I were to continue destroying myself along the path I traversed back in 2008/2009. However, it eventually led me out of spiritual darkness and to redemption in Christianity years later. Whatever energy that produced this poem helped me survive depression for more than 8 years straight, even if it was the pure defiance of death and surrender to mental illness. I hope this work helps you and others get out rock bottom, because suicide is not worth it!
