SUICIDE POEM DANIEL SEANEY
MY SUICIDE LETTER
Daniel Seaney (Life Between the Handle Bars)
Cold, black, steel, pressed firmly against my head
38 special, a trigger pull away from being dead..
Tears roll down cheeks, even though I’m unafraid
Ready for what’s next; consequences already made..
I’m not quitting or hiding behind the sound of a gun,
Rather pressing forward into the darkness I RUN!
Over this disaster called “LIFE” with its quotas and rules
Where SHEEP are led to the slaughter by liars like fools…
Do what you’re told don’t ever stop to ask “WHY?”
Put RESPONSIBILITY and BLAME on some other guy.
AM I THE ONLY ONE THAT IS FULLY AWAKE??
How far can they push us before we all BREAK??
WHY AM I EVEN TRYING TO MAKE ANY WAVES??
SHEEP don’t LISTEN! Headed for their GRAVES!
I SHOULD HAVE DIED IN THAT GOD FORSAKEN LAND!
In the deserts of IRAQ where I didn’t have to understand:
That everything I BELIEVE, everything around me I SEE
Has nothing to do with AMERICA, it’s all about MONEY!!!
TRAINED with ETHICS, MORALS, and to STAND FOR THE RIGHT
In this I’m a FAILURE… WHY DID I BOTHER TO FIGHT??
For a DREAM, a COUNTRY that doesn’t even exist,
AMERICA merely a PLAYGROUND for the RICH!
Where boys like me are chewed up then spit out
After the killing is done, what do they care about?
Not HIM, YOU, or I; we’re left all on our own
To try to find ourselves, to build a new home.
Continually I fail, fail, fail… Left with nowhere to run…
BUT this time it was different I didn’t reach for a GUN!
I threw it all in the trash, I started out fresh
With bars to grab and a throttle to press!
I pulled the trigger and killed all I had become,
I destroyed the programming one by one,
I am no longer the man torn apart at the seams!
COMMITTED SUICIDE by living the LIFE of my DREAMS!
Now imagine your life doing some of the same?
What if you said “FUCK IT!” and GRABBED THE REINS?
WHERE WOULD YOU GO IF YOUR LIFE HAD NO STRINGS?
WOULD YOU? If YOU could CHANGE EVERYTHING?
I put down the GUN, but I KILLED the man in the mirror.
Since that very day I SEE the WORLD so much CLEARER!
I’ve beheld more beauty in just the last two weeks
From Malibu Beaches to the vast Yosemite Peaks…
I’ve TOUCHED the sky and I’ve danced with GOD!
Smallmouth and Rainbow Trout have hung from my rod
Children laughed and standing on a HARLEY I SCREAMED!
THANK GOD I KILLED MY LIFE AND STARTED LIVING A DREAM!
Now take whatever lesson from my words so random
BREAK LOOSE THE BONDS OF SLAVERY EMBRACE YOUR FREEDOM!
