Knock-knock on the door again!
But this time—tell ‘em it’s me!
Can’t sing that same old rhyme
I’ve spent some time at sea
And I found my voice—I made a choice—
That fool you once knew as me—
I killed him
It wasn’t easy to get lost
It wasn’t easy to resolve the clues
I took every sharp corner
I hid behind every bend
Until the coast was clear
Until the coast was clear
I let my heartbeat still
I let my thoughts flow at will
And the truth came out—
No one knew better than me what I was about—
And I knew this was my greatest power—
Yes I knew this was my greatest power—my greatest power!
So I let you judge me for the man I used to be
And I smile and I nod because I want you to get the greatest pleasure
As long as my soul is protected
And my mind is properly directed
You can laugh at that fool I used to be.
I should talk about a new day
Yeah, I should talk about—my epiphany!
Where all my skies are blue
And every day I experienced true love
I should explain the way I beat the odds of insanity
And ended up in a better place
Able to see your lies before you speak a word—
My life! —Is so beautiful!
Dedicated to comedian Robin Williams—the last person in the world I expected to take his own life—this "self-help book in the form of a novel” follows two people in their healing journey: Sarah, a daughter of wealth and power in a process of self-discovery after a suicide attempt; the other, Maurice, a twelve-year-old survivor of street violence willing to take desperate measures to escape from his hopeless home situation.
As they work to put their former lives to rest and build new, brighter futures, How to Commit Suicide demonstrates concrete steps you can take right now to "kick-start" your own recovery; to “end” the life that seems hopeless by re-creating it into something great—a new life and circumstances of your own choosing, without potentially dangerous drugs.
One last thing: if you are truly considering suicide, then PLEASE call the Lifeline at 800-273-TALK (800-273-8255) or go directly to https://suicidepreventionlifeline.org/. You can pick up the book on your way back! :)
