On my way to work the other day, I watched a young man (20's) try to kill himself...

Are You Going The Wrong Way?

by Amber "V" Moonstone


Waiting on the exit ramp at the light,
I saw a very sad sight.
A young man in his 20's crossing a busy street,
irregardless of his safety.

I thought for a moment,
"He must be in a hurry to get to work"
but then he began to walk down the exit
ramp and I asked "Are you going the wrong way?"

He just stared straight ahead...

My light turned green
and as I dialed 911
I knew what I had seen.
I stopped myself from calling

as I saw a policeman already
going to his rescue.
I began to cry and wonder


I am sure it was not an easy decision,
But...what could be so terrible
that a young person would want to die?
That is so sad and always makes me want to cry.

I cry for their soul,
and I cry for their families.
Desperate people,
do desperate things.

Our soul is sacred,
It must sustain many lifetimes
before it can become evolved.
This was a very young soul.


author's notes: This really did happen the other morning, and has been bothering me ever since.  I had to write about this occurence, because I am sure there are many people out there that are at their wits end. 

May the peace, love, and light of this holiday season bring you contentment and joy.

Amber "V" Moonstone

Dear Amber V, I fully understand your feeling. I only hope that this man who went in the wrong direction is safe. It happen to me when I first went from France to Germany. At that time Germany had already the high way ( Autobahn ). Merry Christmas to you and yours. Love Emile

Amber, You are a compassionate soul. This destitute young man was lost for some reason and had given up. I commend you for caring. Please check on him and get back here to tell us how hr's doing.
It's Christmas and a time to do good for others. Your thoughts for this fella and the worry you still have is compassion the world can certainly use.
God bless you!

Years ago I happened upon a newspaper article about a suicide- and it haunted me- much like you describe.
I finally wrote a poem, "Alarms."
It hurts!
Thanks for caring!

Unless you have experienced the feelings of hopelessness you will never understand suicide attempts. When someone attempts to end there life it is because that person is in so much pain death is the only way to stop it.

GOD BLESS, I hope You never face the feeling of hopelessness.
Reviewed by Felix Perry 12/18/2009
It is sad but for the person who is suicidal it is usually to the point that they feel it is the only alternative. Depression is an illness that strikes so many and if untreated leads to just such thoughts and acts.

suicide also creates deep wounds &
horrific scars for those people
within their life circle left to
suffer their loss to this person
it is unending in many ways too...
