Please,
Oh sure-and-stubborn teacher,
stop telling me
her death deserves no mourning.
Stop saying
It was a choice, yes or no
and it's all her fault.
It isn't that simple.
Don't look me in the eyes--
My eyes, that have seen my own blood
more times than I can count; eyes
that have closed tight as a knife was held
to my throat by my own hand;
eyes that read the labels on those bottles
wondering how many pills
would stop my lungs--
don't look me in the eyes and tell me
it's simply yes or no.
poem.

Judging by the feeling of heartfelt empathy in my chest, I think this poem is a good one. :D

Absolutely beautiful.
People shouldn't pass judgment on others, especially not when they have no idea what the person they're judging has gone through. Has it ever occurred to them that that person may have had a much harder life, and much harder decisions to make, then they could ever imagine?
