Grief and Suicidal Thoughts

Feelings of sadness, thoughts of suicide, or depressed moments can be overwhelming if not nipped in the bud. But as in all situations, thinking through desperate decisions is best when unsure of how to proceed. Or, perhaps, assessing catastrophic emotions with bits of humor is a better choice.

Try to enjoy your life even though life has thrown you a curve of sorrow. And remember, “Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning” (Psalms 30:5)


Strange associations
With those passing by
Weirder allegations
Just don’t ask me why

Funny, absurd thoughts
Frequently abound
Odd relationships
Just waiting to be found

Men in straight white suits
Coming now for me
Time clocks, all are calling
And just won’t let me be

Unexplained situations
With no instructions near
Hard hats sporting ribbons
And all that crazy gear

Highlighted sad emotions
Unexplained to kids
Candied swollen eyes—
With enlarged painted lids

Crazy world out there
That’s why I remain
Insecure, yet stable
With just enough of sane

Stranger allegations
Will come back to haunt me
Weird associations
My friends have come to be
