Poem: There is a Simple Answer

(You’re right. I can’t be depressive all the time. But… Another one? Maybe? Let’s try again.)

There is a Simple Answer

Everything hurts
nothing seems right
how can I fix it
do i even want to
there is a simple answer

why fight so hard
when it leaves me in pain
so much pain
everywhere
there is a simple answer

stare at the options
knowing they are options
there is a real way
the final answer of all
there is a simple answer

having the allowance
they signed the papers
assisted is an option
for when life gets too much
there is a simple answer

so why am I still here
why have i put it aside
what about this place
makes me stay another day
there is a simple answer

You.
You make me want to stay.
Nothing else.
Nobody else.
That is my simple answer.
