There They Go

There she goes

What does her life show

She is happy and she smiles

But when she goes home, it only lasts for a while

Does anyone see her cry

Does anyone know she wants to die

Does anyone know that she thinks now is the end

That her hope has gone around the bend

It seems no one cares

For the sorrow it seems no one shares

For at this moment her life is at stake

Drastic measures she will take

There she goes

 

He seems happy and fine

But there isn’t much time

For he is shoved around a lot

For he had no father to be taught

So he puts to his head his gun

For he will no longer be the hated son

His love for himself has disappeared so fast

The little love shown doesn’t last

For people judge and can’t forget the past

For at this moment his life is at stake

Drastic measures he will take

There he goes

 

There she goes, seems happy with life

But at night she cuts herself with a knife

She is beaten so much

It isn’t just

She cries and cries and cries and cries

But when people ask, she just lies

For her life is horrid and sad

And she now believes she is bad

For at this moment her life is at stake

Drastic measures she will take

There she goes

 

He is always helping others

Orphan children and widowed mothers

But at home he is called selfish and dumb

But his horrible drunk mom

No one thinks anything is wrong

But his life won’t last very long

For he is looking into the river

To his watery grave, he shivers

He seems to forget all he has done

For in a few seconds all of it is gone

For at this moment his life is at stake

Drastic measures he will take

There he goes

 

Does anyone see them go?

Does anyone help them heal and grow?

Are we too wrapped up in our own sorrows

Because a life or more will be gone tomorrow
