She said, “I’ve not been in a good mood for a while now”
He said, “man, I’m tired of life, I can’t take this anymore”
She runs to social media, where everything seems alright
But in reality, it’s never the same, it’s all lies
He tries to talk about it, but nobody understands him
You think it’s just another statement made out of frustration, they’ll get over it
Then, they stop talking to you, or anyone, and stick to silence, till it’s too late
Why should they speak up to you, when you can’t even listen
You turn to make everything about you
Eventually, their faith in humanity dwindles
The life that he holds dear, her smile that brings cheer,
Could one day disappear
Reach out to them, let’s find ways to rekindle
That faith they once had, that light that once sparked
All they probably needed was a listening ear, won’t hurt
Could be a text message or a call
Saying, “Hey”, “what’s up”, “how are you doing”
Take those little statements a little more serious
Maybe then, they could open up to you and you might be saving a life
All we have to do, is keep trying…
To you on the other side
Don’t shut us all out, your friends, your family, or peers
Don’t bottle everything up inside
There’s so much we could do, and there’s a limit to how much we could ask
It’s a little too hard for us to pry
Extend a hand for us to grab, you don’t have to feel ashamed
Ask for a shoulder when you wanna cry
Maybe the other person have been through the same
Ask for ears when you wanna share
All those feelings and thoughts that have become too much to bear
When you’re at cross-roads between giving up and giving in
Look around, and you might just find more reasons to live
All you have to do, is keep trying…
Even though I’m writing this, I can’t act like I’ve got it all figured out
So many voices screaming in my head, loud and loud
At times I yell and shout, but still can’t let it all out
So many questions, yet zero to little unsatisfactory answers
To, ‘why me’, ‘why now’, ‘why this, why that’?
To find solutions, where do I fvxking start
When everything seems to be falling apart
How much longer will this go on for?
How much more is gonna be at stake?
How much more is gonna go wrong?
How much more of this can I take?
Am I speaking your mind yet?
Am I the only one to go through this mess?, I think not
Will this be the end of me?, I hope not
It’s easy to put these words on paper, but to voice them out is much harder
I know it and that shouldn’t stop me either
Hence, I’m gonna speak out, so we can help each other
One step at a time, I know I’ll make it out alive
All I have to do, is keep trying…
