But That i

But That i
could have wrestled the knife
from dangers' fingers
But That i
could have nestled that life
in my arms
& as that1 shuddered
uttered that what doesn't kill
you makes you stronger
tell that1 that there is
no health deduction
more fatal & final
than self destruction

But That i
could have been
on the rooftop
been proof that drops
need not end in a fall
4when a friend calls
FRIENDS answer

But That i
could have long since
been the conscience
of1 who feels life is done
& fashions a noose
2 produce results
of self assault

4all who've considered suicide
i wish i could have
taken them 2a side
of life that is
cloaked in hope
& copes with the rope fantasies
with a stroke of vanity:
'My life is 2precious
2loose its value @ my hands
instead i'll enhance its value
in my hands, which is where
it is held.'

suffering in this life is never in vain. you must live the pain and then learn. how could know the pleasure of joy without knowing what it is like to be void of joy
