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!).

You are here


Excessive thoughts over and over again
of how taking your life would allow you to win.
Each time you push them out of you're mind
they creep back in, in a different design.
Some are mild or can be so sublime
that killing yourself seems like the right path to find.
It's like having a small voice inside you're head.
That says over and over you're better off dead.
It will tell you you're friends and family will be better off without you.
And if you take you're life your pain will be through.
Or when you're taking your medication
they'll whisper to you
"taking them all would be the right thing to do."
If this poem seems familiar to you
I've heard the same voices that most of us do.
So the next time those thoughts or small voices creep in
Simply say "NO" to their trickery my friend!
