It’s Raining … Suicide©️

It’s raining young people off roofs

Suicide epidemic—the numbers are proof

A single gun shot aimed at the head

Appearing well but next day, dead

***

Don’t take it for granted you’ll see the signs

Till you read another tragedy in the headlines

Don’t judge by what you see on the outside

It’s not always a testimony of the turmoil inside

Life may be hard even when they make it seem easy

Smiling through tears, living life like it’s breezy

Emitting the brightest light while absorbing life’s darkest

Till it’s too much and they give up, do the hardest

You don’t know what someone may be going through

Laughing through pain, hiding feelings of blue

Be a kind human, mind the words you say

That word may be the one to save a life today

    This is deep and creatively conveys a lot of the sentiment that is being expressed in our world recently. The devil is a sly old fox and such a liar! People really need the love of Jesus, expressed through the church. ❤️💖💗🙏🏾

    1. People’s hearts are failing from fear and the result is this pandemic of canceling their lives. I couldn’t agree with you more —we, the church, must do more to show that Jesus loves and care.
