Just Be

It's everywhere
All around us in the broad open
Yet the blind can't see
What's under their nose

Hard to hear the silent screams
Hard to see invisible tears
Reach out a hand and be a friend
And relieve someone of their fears

Pain isn't easy
People suffer it every day
More than we would like
Then they take their lives away

You can make a difference
You can save a life
Let someone know you care
Let them know
The Hell will pass

All it takes is a listening ear
All it takes, an open mind
An open heart
To stop a suicide from happening
