Treasure Island

Flying Lemming


Never Alone.

Whenever life starts to beat you down.
And stress floods over 'til you think you'll drown.
You are not alone.

When lies and misdirection make you feel lost.
And hurt has turned your emotions to frost.
You are not alone.

When over thinking fills you with pain.
With dark thoughts creeping through your brain.
And you have no energy to try again.
You are not alone.

When addiction's clawing at your back.
And you only can see what you lack.
You are not alone.

Money draining faster than you can count.
And debts adding up to a frightening amount.
You are not alone.

When hope is crushed and your dream shatters.
Leaving your whole self image in tatters.
And you think what you feel never matters.
You are not alone.

Not everyone has a heart of stone.
Ways of reaching out have grown.
Connect with touch or text or phone.
You are not alone.

    Wonderful job on this! It's so easy to forget in the stresses of everyday life that not only are there people out there who care but that we are not alone with our worries and fears. There are many fighting through the same ordeals and worries as we are. Thanks for the encouraging reminder! (Report) Reply

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
