I’ve noticed, there’s a human trend
when one hasn’t got a friend
and motivaton’s at an end
to emotionally descend.
Then, logically we cannot think
and into a depression sink,
until we feel all hope is gone
and there’s no point to carry on.
This is a dangerous downward slope
when someone has lost all their hope
and they can’t see anyway through
to change their course to something new.
They’re stuck in this abysmal state
with nothing left to celebrate,
surrounded by all negatives,
spellbound by lack of positives.
A slippery slide into a hell
which, as far as they can tell,
provides no chance of an escape
and puts them in an awful scrape.
They have descended far too low
for them to know which way to go
and so, in desperation, they
try to seek another way.
When life becomes impossible
then death becomes more viable,
it’s then these people sometimes find
that suicide is on their mind.
They have descended through the floor
and cannot take it anymore,
and they can’t think of reasons why
they should not choose this time to die.
At times like these the greatest gift
would be to give someone a lift.
