Suicide is Painless: Ania


“Through early morning fog I see

Visions of the things to be….”


Anyone who’s ever watched the television series M.A.S.H. has heard the peculiar theme song, “Suicide is Painless”, a song whose title alone is deemed by many as “offensive”. But this song was never meant to glamourize or promote suicide, only to describe how incredibly cruel the game of life can be. Suicide is a very real part of our culture and rather than pretend it’s not there and risk the implications of denial, “Suicide is Painless” reminds me to reach out, to keep struggling even when things are hard, and to remember that  I am not alone. And this is a pretty awesome cover, too. 🙂
