A pill, a razor, a gun.

Veins pulse with throbbing sorrow.
Find release in suffering.
A pill, a razor, a gun,
Long term solution to a temporary problem.

Help them overcome.
Reach out to the weary and broken.

Give them a voice; lend them an ear.
A lost soul searches for air.
Reach out to the weary and broken.
