Zoe Cochran - Suicide Prevention Month Submission

These sunflowers reach for light like hands

stretching towards the sky

in search for the help they seek.

Petals flare open like wide eyes

Stems curl proudly like a smile

forever absorbing the happiness

I watch as they follow the light

and I reach up to the sky

arms wailing around in search

but there is a dark cloud hovering

and I can't find the light

will there ever be a ray to grasp on to?
