A Poem About Finding a Reason to Hope

Content warning: Discussion of suicide.

In ‘Don’t Kill Yourself Today,’ Poet Hanna Dains shares a beautiful argument for keeping going even when keeping going is the absolute most you can do.

This is about giving yourself just one more day
Even if it takes 10000 of those ‘one more mornings’ before you get to ‘I can’t wait for tomorrow’
This is about staying alive because it’s pumpkin season
This is about staying alive because you never really learned to make gnocchi
This is about staying alive because the future is coming
And it is ready for you.
