What Adice Would You Give

suicide

What would you say
To a man on a ledge
Ready to jump because
He’s pushed to the edge

What would you say
To a woman with a knife
Who can’t help feeling
She’s failed as a wife

What would you say
To a boy with a rope
Hung around his head
When he just can’t cope

What would you say
To the girl with the pills
Ready to swallow because
She’s drowning in bills

What would you say
To the knife and the gun
To the rope and the pills
Could you save even one?

What would you say
To change how they feel
Would you tell them their wounds
Will eventually heal?

What words would you say
What advice would you give
To make someone broken
Decide to live
