36 haiku on suicide and the disappearing pond. p.4

36 haiku on suicide and the disappearing pond.

the wheels rotating
then going out of control
stampeding the rest.

stampeding the rest,
over the rest of the world.
too late to stop now.

to late to stop now,
this is how it’s always been.
no one changes things.

no one changes things
because either no one cares
or has enough time.

or has enough time,
so that all that is known is
never really known.

never really known,
everyone’s a shadow
quickly passing by.

quickly passing by
no one is meant to stay long
cherishing people.

cherishing people
offers temporary hope and
and optimism.

and optimism
matters little when cup is
completely empty.

  1. These are really powerful and ring true to me but, not only from my own experiences. Someone I knew recently committed suicide and it was pretty devastating to the community. I think these poems bring light into the pain that some people can’t express.
