"Hope" by Marc Blue

Four of my friends
could not survive
they hadn't the hope
to keep them alive
one used a truck
three used a rope
they ran out of luck
they ran out of hope
all of them men
all strong and silent
remembering them
their endings so violent
two were alone
two each had wives
if I'd only known
they'd all take their lives
I've considered the same
I've struggled to cope
yet I still remain
I still have some hope

  1. Excellent. The suicide rate for men is 5x that of women. There are 200+ shelters in the US for women, only 5 for men but men know they are dispensable.
