Staring away into nothingness
Sinking deeper into the abyss everyday
No one to confide in, no one to talk to
Life has become a hopeless place.
Wonderful smiles adorn the faces
Lively laughs light up the room
But there’s something hidden behind them
Pain, despair, despondence and gloom.
Holding it together till everything breaks
There’s no strength left to mend it now
The delicate breaths slip away into nothing
Leaving behind tears and questions of HOW?
A young, and a very successful actor committed suicide today. It came as a huge shock. He was at the peak of his career, had many more movies signed, and well, on the surface level looked happy. But that wasn’t the case, after all.
Mental health is an important issue. More so in these times. This death shows how depression can make a person take such drastic steps. Even a person like Sushant Singh Rajput. Ironically, the last movie he did was actually based on the issue of suicides in younger generations. He was a very talented, and intellectual person. It will take time to sink in. May his soul rest in peace. 🙏🙏
