I am a 48 year old gay male, from a very dysfunctional family. If you were to look up the word dysfunctional in the dictionary, Webster really should have put a picture of my family right next to it.
I made a suicide attempt in November 2003, and from that experience, and moment on, I was able to put my most deepest thoughts and emotions into my poetry.
Starting off from a dark place, but eventually being more positive and enlightening as the poems progressed.
Some involve my rocky childhood, but most deal with my inner feelings after my suicide attempt, and a few deal with troubled relationships, as well as the passing of my late life partner on September 2, 2006 @ 8:14pm in the hospital ICU, and I was there at the time.
I wrote these poems in the hope of helping other depressed and suicidal people make it through some rough decisions in life, and hope for a better tomorrow.

"Writing these poems gave me the inspiration and insight to enjoy this one life, and to help others by sharing them, so hopefully you can get the help you want and need," Howie (Michael G. Howard) said.
Suicidal thinking and behavior are prevalent
among all classes of society. Many cultures are
impacted by the tendencies to end one's life,
despite their spiritual beliefs. The pressures of
growing up are becoming more relevant in our
fragmented lives. Childhood and adulthood are a
war for some, and the toxic bed of pain becomes
too much to handle. They blame themselves when all the burdens settle on them.
We can't act obliviously to this rising epidemic
of suicide. We need to recognize the warning
signs to save someone who is emotionally stressed
without any hopes of love, happiness, living life
to the fullest and experiencing what God has
given us, before this becomes a vicious circle.
