Promise
 
I wonder while I’m wandering,

muse while I’m pondering

about the worth of it all,

about whether or not to answer the call.


For my despair sings a song

seductively inviting me along

to the promise of a life,

to the promise of a knife.


Sheer stubborness keeps me standing

before all that whispered demanding,

and the knowledge of what this end

will do to my family and my friends.


But knowing that, my weary grief

remains tempted by a promise of relief.
