I hope it’s all right to reblog this–not claiming I wrote it by any means! It’s important information and I feel it needs to be shared.
Despair became her friend
sadness wrapped her like a blanket
Drinking, harming her new trend;
death seemed like her only target,
woke up mornings and saw grey
looked outside and just saw clouds
Praying, hoping was her way
now the pain just screamed too loud.
had no clue that there was hope
there are people who assist
teaching different ways to cope
seeing lifelines on a list
she decides, give one more try
calledKids Help Phone late one night
realized she needn’t die
Gave life a chance, seeing the light.
Sure am glad she called that night.
Don’t give up when times are bleak
Talk to someone who you trust
if you’re scared, then just call us
6868, it’s not too late
we’re always open, day and night
we never close…so call, alright?
