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!).

The clock is ticking by my bed.

The clock is ticking in my head.

The clock is ticking on the wall.

The clock is ticking in God’s great hall.

Hands sweeping the face, erasing time.

Hands sweeping the face without a rhyme.

Hands sweeping a face without any eyes.

Hands sweeping a face that never lies.

Tick-Tock, Tick-Tock, how long did God wind my clock?

Do I have decades and decades to go

as the pendulum swings to and fro?

My end grows near with every breath.

At times I secretly beckon death.

For many this may sound bizarre.

“I am quite ready for my final hour.”

But, if there are new lives to find,

let’s pray a few give us more time.

A few more trips around the sun,

with a little more life, and much more fun.
