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?
