I SEE BEAUTY IN YOU #SuicidePreventionMonth #poetry

authenticitee speaks

And the reasons that you cry

I want to give you smiles

And air and hope and joy within

But every time I reach for you

The pain fills your eyes again

Please don’t disappear

Though selfish of me it may feel

Just know many can relate

And some have even been healed

Though internal my scars

are invisible

And my roots cling to laughter anew

Please don’t take your life today

Cause I see beauty in you

***If you or a loved one are suicidal or in crisis, PLEASE know that you matter and are not alone!…
