I Would Like to Die Today

I would like to die today
The unprovoked pain
That dwells within my decaying brain
Overwhelms me with hopelessness
Please God, remove me
From this plane of existence
And take me away from this needless agony
The chemicals I ingest
Only help to strengthen my lust
To take myself from this horrid place
Yet, my cowardice prevents my early departure
If only I had nothing to lose
The decision would be so easy!
The constantly whirling vortex of emotions
Spinning forever in my cursed soul
Bind me to this world
In a constant state of perplexity
I hold out hope
That one day I never wake up
The fact that I’m hopeful
For such a sorrowful event
Serves only to fuel my own self loathing
Jesus, what the fuck is wrong with me?
I wake to this question everyday
So many questions…
Shall I realize my passing to obtain the answers?
I have suffered with these haunting questions
I think it’s time for the answers
So, with these final words set in place
My ticket punched
The gun in my hand
I hold my breath
As I lay my finger on the trigger
I take my final bow
Farewell.
