I wrote this back in 2010, when struggling with a teammate’s suicide. Poetry was and still is a way to release lingering emotions. I hope you find some connection or understanding.
Cheers, guys, until tomorrow.
Disclaimer: If you are having suicidal thoughts or ideation please consider calling a hotline (1-800-273-8255, or 866-4-U-TREVOR for LGBT youth). I have been there and I was nervous too, but the people are incredibly understanding and helpful. I cannot emphasize enough how important you are and how important it is to reach out.
