Used, Abused, and Injured
Drink it all away until your words are slurred
Dig a blade into your skin
Until your blood starts to run thin
Shut every emotion off
When someone ask just scoff
Let every insecurity eat you alive
Until you have lost your will to survive
Overthink all little things
Until your chest hurts and stings
Black out in the shower
Pass out like a collapsing tower
Wake up weak and half dead
Where you can’t move like you’re full of lead
Wonder why no one wants you
Think about them as you turn blue
See your vision start to fade
Know your choice was just made
Leave behind the world that hates you
Its grey and white hue
Now you’re dead and there is no going back
All you see is black
Your funeral is held and people do go
People that love you start to show
Your friends from school
Your Family, people you barely knew
Because you thought you were alone
Like you just were sinking like stone
But you pushed people away
People never got you to sway
You never let them stay
Just shut them out of our day
They wanted to help you more than ever
But now they blame themselves.
When they found your body
Everyone bent over on one knee
Because they can’t breathe without you.
before you go and do something dumb
I know how it is just to feel numb.
take a moment to let me tell you people care
because maybe you want to share but you don't dare.
don't be afraid to tell somebody you need help
because no matter how small the yelp
they will be there to listen to you
so maybe this is your cue.
this world is better with you in it so don't quit
Please stop hiding that pit
speak out and seek attention
let's start the process of ascension
I know that you feel alone all by yourself
like you've been placed on a dusty shelf
cut off from a society that doesn't love you
but I'm telling you that isn't true.
just give a call to that hot line
let it be a light in the dark that shines
because they will answer and listen
the tears will fall and glisten
because you'll know that they care
you can let go of the tremendous weight you bare.
people love you and they always will
so before you take that pill
before that Blade touches you again
before you step off the end
put down that gun
and just call them so you live to see the morning sun
I love all of you with all of me
I just hope I reach you in time for you to see.
I beg and plead
before you start to bleed
just call them and talk
they want to help you they really do.
don't be afraid to take that first step
don't be like me and never speak out.
