Saying you must open your eyes and relize

Darkness and Light

Day and Night.

Smiles and Laughter

That's well sought after.


That are so near

and in the clear.

Every one is slow

to relize that they know

some one who cries

and dies

inside their heart and soul.

So many have hearts of coal

and never notice the pain.

That some have lain

with death and life.

Some have even played with a knife.

But you may never know

because you are so slow.

So many die

because of lies.

You may look down

to those in your town

that have cut .

Quit being a nut

and see the pain.

They have lain

with death and life

and played with a knife.

They are asking for help

and not laying with the kelp.

They are reaching out

with a doubt

that help will find them.

Because the light of life is dim

to them.

Reach out

and show them they have no reason to doubt

that some is there

to care.
