[Poetry] The Choice

On the bathroom floor,
Glass shard in hand,
It catches the light,
Is this the end?

And the tears, they
Bounce off the glass.
Shutting my eyes, I’ll
Just make this fast.

What of the dreams
I’ve yet to dream?
What of the world
I’ve yet to see?

I lift the glass
Away from my skin.
This night, I choose
To breathe and begin.

  1. I’m always glad your poems end on a hopeful note – it definitely could’ve taken a dark turn, but either way, it would have still been beautiful and heartbreakingly tragic. Sometimes choosing the right thing is obvious to us, but for someone struggling with depression, it’s hard – and incredibly brave too.

    1. I’m a sucker for happy endings and positive linings lol I think it’s because reality is so bleak and I know it doesn’t always end well…so in fiction, I like to give it a hopeful note 🙂

      Thank you for reading Chris! Your comment made me smile today!
