Many of us shed silent tears

Many times hidden inside

Unseen tears that should have been shared

Yet in todays world it is not accepted

You are seen as weak

Even children in this day and age

Are many times taunted

Ridiculed and  teased

Many  resort to drugs and alcohol

Our Children our Men and Women serving

Just everyday people  struggling

In a chaotic world

I wonder

When  the  world will become aware

Become a little kinder

More understanding

And reach out with  helping hands and hearts

I refuse to hide my  tears

When I cry for the child

Found  dead from drugs or alcohol

or that  Soldier or Veteran

who has  given up

The common man  who  can no longer face

losing everything and everyone

leaving him to suffer alone.

They all tried to cope

Tough it out

Drugs, alcohol and last resort


Struggling in this world

To end the  ignoring of the suffering

of so many

As again I read the words

Death by

Self inflicted wounds
