"The Silent Killer"
The silent killer to all I fear
Is one where no one is in the clear.
Pressing thoughts and pure emotion
Can put one’s life in slow motion.
Day by day with nothing to show
Nothing to disrupt the flow.
The past is filled with deep regrets,
The future seems like a creeping test.
Depression wears too many faces.
It has turned up in so many cases.
Impossible to pick these people from a crowd.
They cover up their feelings, like a shroud.
Will I make it through this day?
Is something they might say.
Sinking lower as time goes by.
Their minds telling them they should die.
Suicide is never the answer.
The mind is invaded like a cancer.
Sad thoughts flood the brain,
As one gets ready to pass the pain. ]
Suicide is very deceiving
It doesn’t stop the grieving
The people you love will suffer the pain
They will look at themselves to take the blame.
People with depression decide to hide
Their feelings and emotions inside.
A person carrying a heavy load,
Their minds so full, they could explode.
Seeking help before it’s too late
Can offer you a new, clean slate.
You never need to do it alone
It’s as easy as picking up the phone
This is an important thing to do
Because people have the same problems as you
Many people can relate
It’s not too late to change your fate
The least expected are the people affected.
They are the ones that are disconnected.
The silent killer to all I fear Is one
where no one is in the clear.
