“You have a choice. Live or die. Every breath is a choice. Every minute is a choice. To be or not to be.” Chuck Palahniuk (American freelance Journalist, Satirist and Novelist. b.1961)
Hands rotate clockwise to what's right
Then back around through what's left
Around the center of understanding
In a cipher of timeless existence
Of priceless moments of fulfillment.
Tick Tock. Tick Tock.
Time is of the essence
with the aroma of heaven sent
blessings to be experienced
in the her and now.
How, beautiful the day.
Sometimes to save a life
All you have to do is say
Hey, how are you?
Then listen to someone's truth.
“Anyone desperate enough for suicide...should be desperate enough to go to creative extremes to solve problems: elope at midnight, stow away on the boat to New Zealand and start over, do what they always wanted to do but were afraid to try.” Richard Bach quotes (American Writer, author of 'Jonathan Livingston Seagull', b.1936)
The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is at the forefront of research, education and prevention initiatives designed to reduce loss of life from suicide. With more than 39,000 lives lost each year in the U.S. and over one million worldwide, the importance of AFSP's mission has never been greater, nor our work more urgent.
See you. Be you. Do more.
