I Thought of You | [POETRY]


With this month being Suicide Prevention/Awareness Month, I am reblogging my posts and poetry that deal specifically with suicide, as well as those things that often result in suicide such as (but NOT limited to) depression, bullying, etc.

This is a poem I wrote after I read a blogger’s post about wanting to die. Please share it with someone you are thinking of that is dealing with this RIGHT NOW.

Poetry_i_thought_of_you_001

I saw you THOUGHT of suicide,

I saw you wish you died.

Your loneliness and brokenness,

Were all you had inside.

The noose, the pills, the razors,

Sing songs OF sweet respite.

I know my friend, I’ve been there,

I tried too, to end my life.

So hope I send my warrior,

My majestic, fighting friend.

You will not give up that easily,

You’ll fight it to the end.

When life, and friends, and family,

Jeer and taunt YOU to the last.

Hang onto life you solid rock,

Someone needs you now, not in their past.

“Brother”, Need to Breathe [VIDEO]



If you’ve been following for awhile, you know that I’m a metal head and love bands like 5FDP, Bullet for My Valentine, Black Veil Brides, etc.

But this song is beautiful. It’s my new song of hope. I pray that it lifts someone up tonight.

🙂 Chris

“Brother”

Ramblers in the wilderness we can’t find what we need
Get a little restless from the searching
Get a little worn down in between
Like a bull chasing the matador is the man left to his own schemes
Everybody needs someone beside em’ shining like a lighthouse from the sea

Brother let me be your shelter
I’ll never leave you all alone
I can be the one you call
When you’re low
Brother let me be your fortress
When the night winds are driving on
Be the one to light the way
Bring you home

Face down in the desert now there’s a cage locked around my heart
I found a way to drop the keys where my failures were
Now my hands can’t reach that far
I ain’t made for a rivalry I could never take the world alone
I know that in my weakness I am strong, but
It’s your love that brings me home

Brother let me be your shelter
I’ll never leave you all alone
I can be the one you call
When you’re low
Brother let me be your fortress
When the night winds are driving on
Be the one to light the way
Bring you home

And when you call and need me near
Sayin’ where’d you go?
Brother I’m right here
And on those days when the sky begins to fall
You’re the blood of my blood
We can get through it all

Brother let me be your shelter
I’ll never leave you all alone
I can be the one you call
When you’re feelin’ low
Brother let me be your fortress
When the night winds are driving on
Be the one to light the way
Bring you home

Brother let me be your shelter
I’ll never leave you all alone
I can be the one you call
When you’re low
Brother let me be your fortress
When the night winds are driving on
Be the one to light the way
Bring you home
Be the one to light the way
Bring you home

“Duck and Run”, Three Doors Down [Video, Lyrics]



You’re feeling beat down.

Unimportant.

Trying but always failing.

Moving forward only to get kicked back down.

This is one of my favorite fighting songs to kick that feeling in the butt.

Rock on, my friend!

“Duck And Run”

To this world I’m unimportant
Just because I have nothing to give
So you call this your free country
Tell me why it cost so much to live
Tell me why
This world can turn me down
But I won’t turn away, oh no
I won’t turn around
All my work and endless measures
Never seem to get me very far
Walk a mile just to move an inch
Now even though I’m trying so damn hard
I’m trying so hard
This world can turn me down but I
Won’t turn away
And I won’t duck and run, cause
I’m not built that way
When everything is gone there is
Nothing there to fear
This world cannot bring me down
No cause I’m already here, oh no!
I am already here,
Down on my knees
I am already here, on no, I am
Already here
I must have told you a thousand times,
I am not running away
I won’t duck and run
I won’t duck and run
I won’t duck and run
No pass away
This world can turn me down but I
Won’t turn away
And I won’t duck and run, cause
I’m not built that way
When everything is gone
There is nothing there to fear
This world cannot bring me down
No cause I’m already here
This world can turn me down
But I won’t turn away
And I won’t duck and run
Cause I’m not built that way
When everything is gone there
Is nothing there to fear
This world cannot bring me down
No cause I’m already here

10 Things I’ll Try to Remember When I’m Overwhelmed. [List]



cropped-1076964_10200944215261212_612843535_o.jpg

  1. Love – I will not forget to offer love to those who are overwhelmed. I will remember my roots.
  2. Joy – I may not be feeling it now. But I will be thankful when this valley is over and I am able to experience happiness.
  3. Peace – I will rest during this time and try to be easy on my heart, soul, and mind.
  4. Patience – Somehow, this will make me stronger. With patience and perseverance I will take it upon myself to learn the lesson of my struggle.
  5. Kindness – I will help others when they are feeling overwhelmed. Just as I have been helped.
  6. Goodness – I will make an effort to act nicely even though I may have things hitting me from every direction.
  7. Faith – I will trust that the Lord has a purpose and a plan for this trial. No matter how crazy it seems.
  8. Gentleness – Just because I am overwhelmed does not mean I have to make others suffer. I will strive to be gentle throughout the tempest.
  9. Grace – I will accept it of myself. I’m perfectly imperfect, and that’s perfectly okay.
  10. Self-control – I will try to walk my talk. It is up to me to practice the previous nine promises.

Three Reasons Why You Should Put the Razor Blade and Pills Down NOW. [List]


you_are_special_001

1. Somewhere. Right now. Someone would be crushed to know that you were not in their life anymore.

2. You make someone happy in your life right now. They probably have not told you so or are on the verge of doing so. You have the power to not take their happiness away.

3.  I was in your shoes on 9/14/14. I believe you have the power to push through this. You are stronger than you know.

-Chris
