Liam Lubitz - Suicide Prevention Month Submission

The longer i sit alone in this darkness,

I realize nobody will be my rescue.

I need to get up.

I need to pull myself out.

I can’t keep waiting for someone

because there is no refuge.

I’ve got two good legs

so why not get up and use them?

I’m weak but not dead.

I’m a long shot but not a lost cause.

Every time I start to go

it's like someone is pressing pause.

As I get closer to the daylight,

I feel the warmth on my skin.

I feel it easier to fall back to darkness

but I know if I fight I'll win.
