She Didn't Mind Crying When the Sky Did

She walks alone
Eyes to the ground
Head hanging down
She feels so bound

Cold as ice,
Her heart aches
It didn't have to end like this
Slowly,she breaks

It starts to rain
In blows the wind
She didn't mind crying
When the sky did

No one to talk to
No one seems to care
She hides all alone
Caught in depression's snare

She thinks about death
She doesn't eat or drink
Will she do it?
She slowly starts to shrink

Can anybody hear her?
She cries out
No one listens
How loud must she shout?

The sun sets
On her sad life
No one thought it would come to this
They found a bloody knife

They all prayed
For her sad soul
Hoping she'd choose life
Instead of death's toll

How can we help girls like her?
They can't come into harms way
We need to help
So many every day

Prevent teen suicide
Write love on her arms!
We can't deal
With so many alarms

Give hugs
Spread the love
With God's blessing
Sent from above.
