The Voices Who Speak Out to the Silent Killer


The purpose of this book is to share my personal collection of poetry that sheds light on suicide ideation and how to overcome these thoughts through hope and love. Some of the stories that have been shared in the book are from my own personal struggles with contemplating suicide, coping with a friend and family member who committed suicide, and also based upon my own observation of watching the news/television shows or hearing others struggle with suicidal thoughts. My goal for this book is to begin a conversation of openly talking about suicide and how to develop preventive strategies on reducing suicide ideation, ultimately giving the faces of suicide a voice.
