  23. 23. POEMS OPPOSING SUICIDE ON THE NEXT SLIDES
  24. 24. I can go any time Any where, in any direction Just like the shooting star Out of the orbit and gravitation. Why should I go? Did I know before I was coming? So I postpone the going. If I have not come of my own Somebody has send me So no need to go In the nick time He will call me Rather it will be better To find the answer Do the duty The most desirable The most valuable Who, how, when and why! Long, long ago I wanted to die Some one says somebody somewhere is waiting So I must postpone the going!
  25. 25. Talking for hours without a break, I cannot imagine this is fake. So it didn't take long to realize, This is becoming friends without looking into the other's eyes. There are so many things we share, But one difference that makes me care: While in my life I try everything I haven't tried, You embrace death and suicide. I don't know anyone with such an obsession And please don't blame it on depression! This thing is really spooking in my head: I don't want you to be dead! I think you are creative and smart, I love your poems which is your way of art. I read some of them and sensed your cry: This world does not want me, so just let me die. There is still one thing I don't understand: You want to see the world on the other hand. You are interested in many things including Spanish, So death cannot be your eternal wish. Sometimes life is good, sometimes it's bad, Sometimes you're happy, sometimes you're sad. There is so much this life is giving, So promise me, you will stay among the living.
