The number is on your phone.

Feeling lost,

hopeless,

like there is nothing left to do?

Pick up a phone,

please, i'm begging you.

Pick up that phone

and dial the hotline.

I promise they won't

cause you any pain.

I promise they will try

to get rid of all your pain.

Please, just call

it's there for a reason.

put down the pills,

put down the blade.

Step off that ledge,

towards my open arms.

I will hand you that phone

and you will call that number.

1-800-273-TALK

The suicide hotline

is there

for you.
