The Fall

by Ren   May 26, 2017


It wasn’t the fall
That killed her-
But the many hands
That failed to reach out
And catch her
Before
She
Jumped

    I like how open the title was to interpretation. I clicked expecting to read a poem about the Fall/Autumn. This was very effective in stirring some heavy feelings in me, as the theme is quite close to my heart. It's heartbreaking to think that for some people, this is the reality they are facing. Like at this very moment.

    Agreed.
    When one is at their lowest all they require is just one person by their side telling them that there is hope and light ahead.

    Ren, the thought you put into this is really good and the structure again emphasized your point.
