Stop Committing Suicide

To my muslimahs As salamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh.

My first published poem.

I am not an expert on anything I just have lived long enough to know better.  Many women have lived trough  domestic violence, drug addiction, divorce, the lost of a child and the fact is we are not the designers of our destiny: Allah Subhanna wa Tallah is.
When you are alone, sadden, hurt, betrayed, hungry and tired, who do you turn to?
When enough is enough? When a black eye becomes a sign of abuse? When a drink or a drug becomes your last run?

Stop Committing Suicide

For the sake of our future
For the sake of our children
For the love of God,
Stop committing suicide.
Every day, every night, every time
I look into your eyes
I can only say,
Stop committing suicide.
Every day, every night, every time
That you don’t care any more and
Little ..babies.. cry at night
Stop committing suicide.
And every day, every night every time
A mother, a women, a sister, me
Raises her voice and gives a message
Of hope
We will stop committing suicide
