Till Death Do Us Part

My Life, my one true love,
The one thing that makes me happy to wake up to every morning.
My uncontrollable consistency, the one thing I want to commit too.
I love you Life. I promise not to fight, push or shove.
Right now, I will make my vows. I don’t want to be just another person without a warning,
To end it all, kill myself, the greatest taboo.

I can’t and I won’t stray from God’s path,
Suicide won’t answer my questions or make me understand.
Life is what you make it, every rise and decline.
So, here’s to all my pain and wrath…
My name won’t be another in the printed newsstand.
The fate of my Life is mine.

150 dead, day by day…
Killing themselves, trying to be saved.
I won’t be next, will you?
150 teens, lead astray…
Where was their support, before they caved?
Gone forever, no redo.

So here are my vows to you Life,
I promise to relax and be patient.
I will forever hold a special place for you in my heart.
No matter the stress, pain or strife…
Take my breathing as my giving payment.
Till death do us part.
