Where Were You?

When I needed you, where were you?
Where were you at that time
When the world seemed big and scary
And nothing seemed sublime
And where were you in the moment
When I reached out for a hand
When my heart was sad and lonely
Depressed; in sinking sand

Where were you for those seconds
When your brightness would have brought
The sun back; warm and shiny
When I felt so damned; distraught
And where were you when I called out
So desperate for a word
For a hug or reassurance
For a chance just to be heard

For now as I lay dying
As I loose the will to live
I wonder if you even cared at all
That you failed to stop and give
A minute of your precious time
A second of your day
When desperation came a calling
Yet you chose to turn away

If you are ever in this position and need someone to talk to, the Samaritans are an organisation that will listen in your moment of need.  They say “We offer a safe place for you to talk any time you like, in your own way – about whatever’s getting to you. You don’t have to be suicidal.”   FMI go to https://www.samaritans.org

In Control

We wake – we take – we choose – we die
We live – we breathe – we might comply
But won’t succumb to other things
That hold our life in ransomed strings
Save have a creed that’s fair and free
A life that’s based on liberty
To make the choices we would make
To take from life what we would take
And out of that we’ll contribute
To all around; to walk in boot
Of those who need a helping hand
To live our life in our command
To be the one that owns our goal
For from that base we’ll have control
