My son's suicide
Less than a year ago I lost my son.
I had no idea that he had a gun.
I heard a shot that came from his room.
Now I feel nothing but despair and gloom.
I didn't know that he was capable of doing himself harm.
It hurt like Hell when my son died in my arms.
When it came to his anger and pain, he always hid it.
I cry every day and I still can't believe that he did it.
As they buried him in the ground, it was both painful and grim.
It was partly my fault because I didn't pay enough attention to him.
I can no longer look in the mirror because I see the reflection of someone who I hate.
Please don't neglect your children like I did or you may suffer the same horrible fate.

Truthfully, I hesitated to even read this.  I have a son and my heart stopped when I saw the title of your poem. This is an important peace and I am glad you makes one think about empathy.  Thank you

Randy, suicide is  very common today.   I do medical coding for the ER so I read the dr's dictation day in and day out.  Suicide  in young people is on the rise...and especially during the full moon....almost like they join in a pact with other troubled youth .  You give a good warning to parents to spend time with their children...and I would add, take very serious their cry for help.  Great job on a poem on a difficult subject.
