For those who struggle, it is a nightmare.  For those who have had their lives torn apart because a loved one committed suicide, the pain continues.  The questions continue.  Suicide of a loved one often destroys the lives of those left behind.

Here is a poem by a friend of mine that I thought was very powerful and says so much. I hope you like it as much as I do. Many of us struggle to heal and at times, finding the answers and finding our way through is not always easy.

One of the things that I have found is helpful is to journal and write in whatever form that takes for you. If it is poems, or just impromptu writing or some other form of expression, do whatever is necessary to heal. Self expression gives us back our power from events that have taken it away.

Here's the poem by Jeff Lemlich.

by Jeff Lemlich

INNOCENCE was a place faraway,
a different lifetime,
surely a different reality.

Gone and lamented, lost and tumbling,
Stopping to gawk at myself
and the shell of a person
that struggles and meanders,
constantly tired.

And with each twitch and palpitation,
Will you watch someone’s essence and purpose fold into its
bony curved little spine?

Asking all the wrong questions.
Chasing all the wrong answers.
