This poem written by Alexis Wolfe showcases the woes of depression and suicidal ideation. It goes through a visual of events to showcase warning signs of a suicidal person and has an amazing plot twist. An excerpt from the visual is as follows:

I Should Commit Suicide
So don’t try to convince me that
My life is worth living
With these thoughts that I am better off dead
I don’t want to go on another day
But now I realize
Death may be my only escape
And I no longer believe
There is another way
I hope it’s not too late
