if only

May 20, 2010
there was a kid,
we'll call him brad,
he was a little off beat
and wanted attention, bad,

we told him we hate him,
said no one cared,
if only, if only,
we had been there

when he needed us,
he got a knife,
felt we didn't care,
he took his own life,

we told him we hate him,
said no one cared,
what if, what if,
we had been there?

would he even
have lost his life?
would he ever
have grabbed that knife?

if only, if only,
amazing grace,
had shown through me,
in this place
