Just Make It One More Night

teddy-bear[1]

Sometimes the darkness in your mind

Sometimes the piercing in your heart

Sometimes it’s just much too much

 

Daydreams of eternal peace

Eternal rest

Free from grief

Free to breathe

Heaven signifies

That God’s arms

Become my home

For evermore

 

Stop Stop Stop

 

Don’t listen to the lies!

 

The Sun is a promise

that never fails

The warmth of the morn

is not far away

 

Sit with your pain

holding tight

just till dawn

when the Earth brings light

 

Your pain comes from you

your child within

were you not loved?

were you not nurtured?

or maybe not enough?

 

Listen to your pain

she weeps from your soul

cradle her softly

 

tell her she’s not alone

 

 

Hum her sweet melodies

just don’t let go

fast asleep in your own arms

both have sweet dreams

 

Gently you awaken

feeling warmth from within

you blink at at the suns glow

no darkness in site

 

you made it one more night

 

Some of us have voids in our soul

Maybe as a child our needs went unmet

Will you also ignore that child that’s you?

Will you tell her you have others things to do?

She needs you as she has all through the years

be the one to mother and nurture lovingly

hold her in your arms as she weeps all night

Remind her she never has to be alone anymore

 

watch and see…

 

You made it again…one more night…

Depression Kills…Please Make This Viral

 

This is so hard to watch, many will turn it off immediately and think, how negative!  Consider it more negative if we continue to dismiss that suicide increases by leaps and bounds everyday.  Why is that when there are so many new pills out.  Shouldn’t these depressed people get over it by now.  Geez, aren’t we tired of their attention seeking Debbie Downer attitude.

And that my friend is the reason that that approximately 96 people take their own lives everyday.  This is especially from those who have suffered from depression for decades, like myself.  47 years of reaching out, takes its toll on those who have to listen, I know this. So the depressed, seeing people pull away from them, find themselves isolated and instead keep their dark thoughts to themselves. They have burdened every friend, family member and wow…they see they don’t feel better, in fact because of the isolation and loneliness… it is actually worse.

Medications are not the solution, trust me, they do not work for most of us. If one talks to those who survived depression they all answer the same thing. The medication doesn’t work but more so, there are so many loss of connection.

The stigma against people with any type of disease that is in our heads is making it so people stop reaching out. If you are like me and have suffered all your life, people get tired of hearing about it. Many times you hear, if you really wanted to do it, you would have done it. You are seen as an attention seeker and get to the point where you just stop reaching out and eventually you become so isolated that you begin the believe the lies your brain is telling you.

At the end of the video is a hotline if you or somebody you love suffers…please call. Suicide is not the solution and believe it or not there are people out there that care. Don’t let peoples ignorance or cruelty push you. Reach out…just never stop trying….

SUICIDE IS PREVENTABLE!

Special acknowledgement to Spoken Poet, Joyner Lucas in “I’m Sorry”. I never heard of him and not sure how I came across this, but wow! I was captivated. It is about time we have a person in the industry that isn’t just about Blow me ho! or Shake dat azz and such.  His music has a real message that we cannot continue to run from because it makes us uncomfortable.
