Come Out of the Darkness

Location

I see you


With the razor


And you


With the lighter


I notice your scratches


And I hear your silent cries


While you grip that rope


That gun, like a lifeline


Please stop, it hurts


________


 


My heart aches


I cannot control you


I cannot stop you


I cannot heal you


________


 


But, I will do all I can to help you


To guide you to a better life


Just hear me


Please hear me


 


 ________


My pleads


My cries


My gasps


My begging


My voice


________


STOP!


________


You're better than this


Start acting like it


Stop doubting yourself


 


________


What are you doing to yourself?!


Drop that razor


Put down the lighter


Throw away that vile rope


Toss that ugly gun


Flush those horrible pills


________


Stop this, right now!


Dry your eyes


Touch the beautiful skin you were about marr


Pick up your textbook


Say goodbye to the darkness


Step into the light


________


 


Yes, it's okay to cry


Just stop crying into your pillow


And use my shoulder instead


Just listen to me


You are needed


You are wanted


________


Take a hold of your future


It's not too late It's never too late


I will show you


Just come with me


I promise I will show you
