Death Can’t Wait.

A lot of people today suffer from varying degrees of depression and other illnesses that are not apparent. I wrote this as a way of connecting to those. If you know of someone so stricken then don’t ignore them, that can be the cruellest thing of all.

I want to give in, and call it a day.

Give up on it all, and walk away.

I have no life, that’s left inside

No longer do I wish, to simply survive.

Give me respite, give me peace.

Lay my body down and give me release.

There is nothing left in life for me to explore,

Except that which awaits behind that final door.

On days of despair I welcome death.

Those days are now becoming too many,

Take away my final breath.


About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp, ex-London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver never planned to be a writer, but after his first novel —The Desolate Garden — was under a paid option to become a $30 million film for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company what else could he do? Nowadays he is a prolific storyteller, and although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows most about; murders laced by the intrigue involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he compiles both for adults and children. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication, been described as —the new Graham Green — by a managerial employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of signing events, and he has appeared on ‘live' television.
