What Do You See #82 – Who Cares

Rules:

You can write a post on your blog and create a pingback to link to the original post.

Write an original story, poem or a caption.

There is no limit to words or format but keep it family-friendly.

If you post a response before next Sunday, I will be able to add it to my roundup post.

I will do a round-up next Sunday before the next Prompt is posted.

It is always helpful if you can give your post/story/poem a title.

Paste a link of your post in the comments section so that I don’t miss anyone in the roundup post.

My Submission:

If I were to jump, who would care?

Sure, my dad might, 

And maybe my girlfriend.

But, no one else, 

Right?

Potentially my mom,

My best friend, 

My daughter.

But, no one else,

Right?

My buddy at work might shed a tear,

My friends from college.

But, no one else,

Right?

The people on the street wouldn’t care,

They don’t even know me.

If I were to jump, who would care?

My grandmother, 

My aunts and uncles,

Nieces and nephews,

My therapist?

I’m sure my ex’s would celebrate, 

Right?

If I were to jump, who would care,

Besides them…

    1. I greatly appreciate that, Sadje. Unfortunately, this touches close to home. The repercussions are monumental, and greatly affects EVERYONE …”What could I have done”, “Is there something I should have said”, “Is this my fault?”, “Why didn’t I recognize this?” Very sad to think anyone can feel so alone and hopeless that they would choose something so drastic and final 😦

  1. Many of us care, including me.🙂 This is good timing for this poem. There has been a rise in the number of people with depression as a result of being alone and indoors due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
