human kind be both

human kind - be both
There was another suicide

Gossip flew the other day

Heartaches created by pride

Lives are shattered this way

In a moment of desperation

Thoughts at last are selfish

Anguish turned to devastation

Leaving others to wish

They had or had not said

What could they have done?

Different now one is dead

Guilt falls down on one

The struggle to live

A new life begins

Learning to forgive

Only the blameless wins

Many people want to die

Or do not care if they do

The flesh is weak it will lie

The spirit calls to you

Trust will take a long time

Listen quietly to the still small voice

Then begin the awesome climb

From darkness to light we have a choice
