Counselling A Friend
Counseling a Friend

Why do your thoughts turn to suicide?
Why is your anger and rage unrestrained?
Why do you mutter these uncontrollable outbursts?
Do you want attention from despair?
Why has life gotten you so down?
Why can you not see beyond?
Worries, sorrows and woes,
Why is your mind consumed?
By all these negative thoughts?
Are there no answers that bring happiness?
Why are you consumed by this image of death?
Can you not see the silver lining?
Through all of this despair,
Look for some happiness,
Look for some joy,
Life was not always this bad,
Look around you for others do care for you,
Don’t let negative thoughts ruin your life,
This all encompassing negativeness,
This is not who you are inside,
See yourself as better then this turmoil.
You must face all your uncertainties as all of us do,
Never let them consume you,
For there is much beauty within.
