Here, Alive

When the shadows overwhelm,

With the Inner Critic at the helm,

It’s hard to see the value I

Might have in someone else’s eye.

I assume the same is true for you,

When you don’t know just what to do

In the face of your own Self-Defeat,

The scripts you’re not sure you can beat.

When you at this steep cliff arrive,

Wondering if you ought to dive,

Know it’s not too late to thrive.

The world needs you here and alive.

A Void

The Sadness is a void within.

It numbs the heart, it mars the skin;

It breaks the spirit, it pains the soul;

It keeps its victims from the Whole.

Yet the Sadness is a lie,

It can be beaten if we try.

But not alone, for that is how

The Sadness beats upon our brow.

Make the call or say the word.

It doesn’t matter what you’ve heard.

‘Cause help is not for weak or small,

Community’s a need for all.

If you are struggling with depression, self-harm, or thoughts of suicide, it’s okay. Please call 1-800-273-8255 now.
