When?…#mentalillnessadvocate

IMG_1711.PNGWhen will people listen oh how hard I’ve tried!!!?
To share about this illness…yet another suicide
People are in pain it’s all closed up inside
They carry it around but oh they must have tried
Somehow did they show you the signs before they died
Did you reach for them to help them or did you pass them by
Were you in a hurry with distractions in your life
Or did you spew some words that had cut them like a knife
Did you judge them by appearance or their actions that you saw
Did you think that you were better and that you don’t have a flaw
Tormented minds, broken hearts everywhere they don’t need your preachin they need to know you care
Afraid to speak they have no voice they feel unworthy as if they have no choice
Why are these words falling on deaf ears
There’s no help for people with hidden tears
My heart is broken tonight and has cried
Because I’ve heard once again about another suicide
