An Easy Way Out: A Story Poem

An Easy Way Out
by Jim Nasium

Every day things just get worst for him
he just don't know what to do
he's tried everything he knows
to help him make it through
"love from friends and family
just ain't enough" he said
he knew an easy way out of it all
problem was he's have to be dead...

He sits up in his studio
just looking at the wall
waiting for an answer
but no answer comes at all
not sure if it's the right thing
but it seems like the best thing to do
he'll take the easy way out
if you were him, so would you...

He rents a small back room
there's some pictures on the wall
he reaches in the drawer for a needle
he takes the biggest one he saw
he dumps a pile of powder
in a spoon with water waiting
cooks it up until it's clear
he's tired of hesitating...

even though no one will understand

He takes a good look at the needle
that's he's holding in his shaking hand
suddenly his dead friends are there with him
this wasn't part of the plan
all his old buddies who passed away
before him over the years from OD's
were standing around him quietly
they were where he wanted to be...
