How often do some of you...

... think of committing suicide?

And I am not just saying 'thinking about it on a whim' but really constructively planing it, date, time method, suicide note...

Or am I alone at the moment in planning to do this. I am sure some of you have read a bit about me, that I have shared in messages and comments, but very few, no let us make that no one knows that I truly am at the end of my rope, or should I say path.
And to be honest it does not really matter.

Pen on a dirt road - Poem 3

between worlds text sml.jpg

This is the third poem from my collection of poetry called 'Pen on a dirt road'.

In this, I was really grappling with coming to acceptance of who and what I was at the time.
Trying to define the concept of being TS and it's impact on the self as a whole.
And the impact if it on the people I knew and the other around me.


PS. The poems that I am posting here are slightly edited from the originals that were published.
With hindsight, life experience and skill things evolve, as they always should.

Pen on a dirt road

I have decided to post my book of poetry here if you people do not mind.

It was published in 2002 under the title 'Pen on a dirt road', and span about 7 years worth of writing between 1994 and 2001, dealing with my mental state, thoughts of suicide and self-destruction while working toward my eventual SRS on Sept 11 2001 at age 28.
