WHY PEOPLE COMMIT SUICIDE


The thoughts roll on in circles in your mind
There's things you can do to block the wheels
One moment your're feeling angry and being unkind
Because you've to get the pain out before it kills

There's been much suffering too long and you're old
Children are all grown up, husband gone ten years
Grandbabies give you a glimmer of God's gold
So you go on another day living with your fears

Then those young ones with not another moment
Shooting, hanging, dying, successfully committing suicide
Not realizing death is dormant
It's the final, total, lasting end of this life's ride

You think there is nothing to live for, so die
People don't love you and it's got to go
Really, ready at that second to say goodbye
I've been there, I understand, I know...
