Hi Friends,

I wish to discuss a serious topic of suicides, especially, by teenagers, children, and young adults in their early to mid-twenties. Whenever I hear the news of youngsters ending their lives because they are not able to digest their failure, I am concerned about the future generation. It made me compose this poem.

Suicide: A curse on humanity

Why are we so desperate to end our lives?
Is success the only thing on which humanity thrives?
Why don’t we motivate ourselves to be strong?
And accept both success and failure as a companion for long.
Are we having too much of expectations?
Are we subjecting our children to condemnations?
We fuss over them when they outshine their peers.
We party all night amidst celebrations and cheers.
What happens to us when they fail?
We treat them like criminals in jail.
Success and failure is a part of our life.
Fear of failure makes us resort to a noose or knife.
Life is very precious; We shouldn’t end it for a silly reason.
Let’s remember that after every winter, there’s the cheerful spring season.
Fail means First Attempt In Learning.
There’s no need to raise a hue or cry or spend our life in mourning.
We shouldn’t give up trying no matter what the world says.
And train our children to be prepared for both gloomy and sunny days.
We should stop comparing our lives and those of our children with others.
We should support them regardless of their success or failure as responsible fathers and mothers.

Thank you so much for taking your precious time to visit my website. Hope you enjoyed reading my blogs. 😊😊

  1. The mental health crisis with teens is unlike anything I think we’ve seen before. Over half the kids in my daughters 8th grade class have either been hospitalized for depression or are currently under psychiatric care. These are kids with the means to get help, and for every one of them, there are so many who can’t get help. It breaks my heart.

  2. Thank you so much. 😊😊. Actually, I was shocked to learn from my husband that his former collegue’s son had committed suicide over the lack of preparation for his upcoming exams. That’s what inspired me to write a poem on it.
