SAY NO TO SUICIDAL THOUGHTS By Ejiga Michael

Written by Editor

Life is always in pairs

Circumstances impairs

Hopes drown in despair

Then I said life is not fair

What more could life offer?

All I’ve worked for were taken away

The things I’m working for keep slipping away

Everything seems so far away

And the shoulders to cry on move away

What more could life offer?

The knife looks so fine

The sniper tastes like wine

The trigger will just be on time

I could take my life

What more could life offer?

Then spoke again the voice in my head

Whispering sweet sounds into my ears

Then I wondered what I heard

This is what I heard

Be of good cheer;

Let nothing trouble thee;

For a living dog is better than a dead lion!

Instantaneously, I realized

That He died just to give me life

That I should live and forever smile

My hope rejuvenated to life.

Life offers hopes so do death

But suicide takes the hope and gives hell

Because it put the soul in danger of hell!

 It’s just a disguised snare

But the snare had been broken and we have escaped

We escaped to wake; we are woken but still broken, broken by circumstances we seemingly have no control of.

We are broken because the journey is meant to break our hearts.

The journey of life is meant to break your heart

This course (medicine and surgery) is meant to break your heart _so take it as it takes you and break it as it breaks you_

Suicide is never an option, you have several reasons to live, but if you think you don’t have any? I’m here to give you some

Live for those that want you alive and if you think nobody want you alive live at the expense of those whom you think wants you dead. But there is someone greater than all who loves you and always want to see you alive He is the creator that loves you! God loves you so much and suicide should not be an option
