Suicide Haiku

Fewer words are best. Soldiers know this, when they try to write about combat. Decorating horror with adjectives is like putting glitter on shit. What’s the point? It’s still shit.

On Tuesday my favorite cousin was hospitalized in a psychiatric facility for depression and suicidal thoughts.

On Thursday, they released him because he was no longer a danger to himself.

On Friday, he killed himself.

That’s it.

 

Suicide is preventable. It should always be taken seriously. If you need help, or know someone who does, call 1-800-273-TALK (8255) anytime, 24/7. http://www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org/
