Don’t Say a Word

What ever you do,
do not tell him that there
is a way for him to end all of this.

Don’t let him know that
in one impulsive moment
he can stop the feelings
that have bothered him his
whole short life.

The thing about giving someone life is
you don’t get any say in
how or when that life ends.

That knowledge could make the world end.

All the babies in the world
would never be born
if mothers realized this
before that sweet first breath
was ever taken.
