Just some thoughts around life and death. A paradox maybe. Where I one day wish I were dead, than the next I want to live, but if I choose to live, I choose a life in pain...and if I choose death, I cause others pain...


time finally
caught up with me.

I've been cheating death
with life
for so long,
I'm exhausted,
to old to play
hide and seek.

So I guess the moment were right
for time
to finally get me.

But why punish me with pain
when an unwanted marrige
with death
would hurt me more?

Why am I forced
to stay here
with life,
when all our days
will be filled with tears?

Beautiful!Sad, and a lot of raw emotion, but in the end, just don't take your own life,it leaves many questions,life might be hard at the moment,but sometime in the future it has to get better, I'm still waiting for it to get better!But,you're still young,enjoy life while you can!

I can see you put a lot of feeling into this. Life and time should be kinder to you.

I like the use of the metaphorical language, making it sound as if someone has given you the punishment of living your days. Well written, keep it up.

I love when poem involves deeper thoughts than just the actuality. There is hope. Life was not meant to be comfortable but filled with challenges. I have been there also.

i think a lot of us are like that, we choose to live mostly, but some choose to die, but i think lots will sit down in times of their life and weigh the decision up in their minds.

to old - too old
were right - we're right
marrige - marriage
