I’m on the edge of the world
Wil I fall?
I am holding onto life
Like a fool
I should just let go and let fate know
I can’t take much more!
I am bored of monotony
Everyone has forgotten me
There is no leverage to keep me going
In this lake of tears I keep rowing
Like a seamstress I keep sewing, a new life for me
But then things happen like tragedy
Like a wheel turning around and it’s trapped me
Like a hamster in its wheel going around and around
Like a dog trapped in a cage within a pound
All these words are exhausting me
I should let go
What exactly is holding me to want to stay?
There is no play
I have totally and utterly lost my way
And dribbling words upon this page
Like some demented poetic sage
Writing this inside her cage
Locked inside dreams that won’t come true
Wondering what the blazes to do
Just let go or live some more
Maybe someone will knock on the door
And I will leave this solemn place
And maybe find again my pride and grace?
Until then I am hanging off this cliff, wondering…
Should I let go?

Let go and let God, I always say.
The meaning of this poem is about suicide, I don’t think you’ve realised what you have said there!
