Who’s to blame for suicide?
The question often heard.
Someone always points a finger
And they say such hurtful words.

They never do consider that
It’s caused from a disease.
Depression and Bipolar
Are just a few of these.

Some die from being murdered.
Some die from accidents.
Some die from pneumonia.
But none of it makes sense.

Sometimes body parts wear out
Way before their time.
Some lose the cancer battle.
But it all seems so unkind.

No matter how they leave us
It never is their choice.
There’s something deep within them
That has a bigger voice.

So please refuse to take the blame
For the THING that took your child.
Although others point their fingers.
They haven’t walked your mile.
