Greetings everyone and welcome to another edition of Friday Night Poetry Corner (yes a day later but nonetheless..).

Lily P. McLaughlin is the poet that will be feature today. This work called “My Name is Suicide” is a powerful yet important work that needs to be acknowledged more in society. I am glad people like her are giving more awareness on the topic as I am sure you, know I known friends who had people in their lives take their own life suddenly.
