If you need emergency assistance in the United States, call Suicide Prevention at (800) 273-8255 or the Veterans Crisis Line at (855) 238-5745. Otherwise call 911 or your local emergency number.

For my personal views dealing with suicide which I have called SE (Self Execution) please read and share my book if you believe it can help others. Download The Survivor's Guide to Self Execution right now!

This is a specially formatted version of the Survivor's Guide for PDF readers so you can read it on almost any device. Check your app store for a free PDF reader.

It is also available in paperback at Amazon.com. Buy one for a friend (especially one without a computer or cell phone!).

Compassion

Compassion
Normal people scare the Hell out of me
with their mundane lives thinking their free.
They all trod along in the same direction
seldom searching for an individual connection.
Fear of being labeled different shakes them to the core
and most people I meet seem like clones anymore.
I'm mentally ill I'm different in way after way
and I try to express it in what I write or I say.
If my confession about my condition turns you away
go back to the comfortable life in which you stay.
For it's simpler not to try and understand those different from you
and not take one step towards understanding the pains they've been through...
