"They don't think it is what it does, but it do." ~Oscar Gamble


When you are in times of strain,
Troubling thoughts may fill your brain.
You'll cut your wrists, sever your veins,
And watch it flow, accepting pain. 


Cut it out. Please cut no longer.
People rely on you. Please stand stronger.
You are loved. You're a belong-er.
Be un-depressed. don't be beaten; conquer.


You may think, "Well, who cares."
And there is someone who does, somewhere.
If you haven't met them yet, they're still out there.
And if you leave, their life will be bare.


There's more than one. There's plenty, indeed.
You just wait, you'll soon be freed
From hatred, depression, and being in need.
You'll fly like a bird and run like a steed.


Soon, you'll be helping some people like you
going through tough times that you have gone through.
Your happiness will save not one life, but two.
And the chain will go on. I tell you, it's true!


So next time these troubling thoughts interrupt
your happy life, you must stand up.
Reach out for help, and though it is tough,
you'll know what to do if your loved ones lose touch.
