I not only wrote my book of poetry to help me after my suicide attempt, but to also help others as well. I added multiple Resource and Helpline pages of information, for people to find and get the help they want and need.


Background Information

I am a 49 year old gay white male, from a very dysfunctional family. If you were to look up the word dysfunctional in the dictionary, Webster really should have put a picture of my family right next to it.

I am part German on one side of my family, and part "genetically challenged" from the "other" side.............LOL>

I made a suicide attempt in November 2003, and from that experience, and moment on, I was able to put my most deepest thoughts and emotions into my poetry.Starting off from a dark place, but eventually being more positive and enlightening as the poems progressed.

Some involve my unstable childhood, but most deal with my inner feelings after my suicide attempt, and a few deal with troubled relationships, as well as the passing of my late life partner on September 2, 2006 @ 8:14pm in the hospital ICU, and I was there at the time when God claimed his soul.

I wrote these poems in the hope of helping other depressed and suicidal people make it through some rough decisions in life, and hope for a better tomorrow.

My Suicidal Heart
Suicidal thinking and behavior and suicide, are prevalent among all classes of society. Many cultures are impacted by the tendencies to end ones life, despite their spiritual beliefs. The pressures of growing up are becoming more relavant in our fragmented lives. Childhood and adulthood, is a war send for some and the toxic bed of pain becomes too much to handle. They blame themselves when all the burdens settle on them. We can't act oblivious to this rising epidemic of suicide. We need to recognize the warning signs and save someone who is emotionally stressed, before this becomes a vicious circle, without any hopes of love, happiness, or living life to the fullest and experience what God has given us. Writing these poems gave me the inspiration to enjoy this one life, and to help others by sharing them, so you can get the help you want and need.
