self-destruction

!

no

blaming

suicide

gun explosion

young father missing

community feels shock

evil darkens human thought

 – tragedy’s   harsh   realities –

one cannot undo desperate choice

maybe she will leave so he leaves her first

do not assume the mistakes of others

such could happen to any of us

relationships turn on an edge

hold fragile hearts tenderly

commit to love thru pain

forgive each again

God help us all

redemption

healing

yes

?


This poetry form, an “etheree”, consists of 10 lines of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 syllables.  Etheree verse can also be reversed and written 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.  Sadly, suicide is irreversible.

    ‘hold fragile hearts tenderly’ was a gentle conviction and reminder that most hearts are fragile even (especially) when they appear hard. And I have a responsibility to hold them with care.
