I have a life threatening illness

Depression.

Severe and Major

It's threatened my life on more than
A few occasions
Dark nights it lingers over my shoulder
Whispering thoughts into my head

One tragic accident away from death
One slip, one night I feel too...

Sad
Angry
Lost
Hurt
Abandoned
Alone

One cut too deep, One slice too thick,
One pill too many, One jump too far,
One step off a curb, One shot in the dark,
One word too many hanging from your lips
One comment too far, One life lost,
One thin piece of rope, One chair kicked,
One river too deep, One knife too sharp,
One pool of blood too large, One bad day,
One teenager added to a growing statistic,
One family torn apart, One school shocked,
One neighborhood mourning a hidden struggle

It only really takes ONE

Open your eyes.
Reach out One hand,
Say One genuinely kind thing,
Keep One thing in your thoughts,
Tell One person what you've seen
Tell One person how you feel, what you suspect
Open your mouth Once

Save ONE life.
I was just thinking that there is so much that can be done
Tomorrow is To Write Love On Her Arms day
Do something, Do one thing.


Let me know if I should put a warning on it.
