Reasons to Stay

After you jump,
everything in your life will be fixable
except that you have jumped.

Four seconds and 225 feet from now
you’ll be reduced to a statistic

But, if you don’t jump…

Your partner will not sleep alone tonight.
The two of you can even go Dutch for dinner
if that’s what you wanna do.

Your parents will have one more visitor
and one less loved one to bury
in their golden years.

Your children will get to brag
their parent can beat up other parents
just because that’s how kids say

I am proud of you.
I love you.

You matter.
