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.
