NOBODY SEEMS TO GET IT-A response to Suicide/Giving Up

They painted up your secrets
With the lies they told to you
And the least they ever gave you
Was the most you ever knew And I wonder where these dreams go
When the world gets in your way
What's the point in all this screaming
No one's listening anyway Your voice is small and fading
And you hide in here unknown
And your mother loves your father
'Cause she's got nowhere to go And she wonders where these dreams go
'Cause the world got in her way
What's the point in ever trying
Nothing changing anyway They press their lips against you
And you love the lies they say
And I tried so hard to reach you
But your falling anyway And you know I see right through you
'Cause the world gets in your way
What's the point in all the screaming
You're not listening anyway



I presume to know anything, know exactly what you're specific struggle, but it may be one where you feel as if you can't do it anymore, where life is meaningless, where Christianity is just a numbing agent, and your parents, friends, pastors and family just don't seem to get it. You're life inside is the only life you live, a lonely life, a hopeless life, but on Sunday morning you put the smile into place, and put the makeup on to hide the scars inside and read the bible, but only for the stage. When you go to your place of solitude, you wish for someone else's life, a life you wish you had, a family different than the one you have, a much stronger faith than the one that just gets you by. You wish for great things and are frustrated with the process, and are frustrated with your life and all the things that the facade of life seem to offer and Christianity is just a band-aid to you, it just doesn't seem to work anymore. We have all been there. Whoever you are, you can't do it alone. you mustn't, you weren't meant to. There is a carpenter who builds on your life more and more and day to day, must you believe, you must see beyond what you feel, what your circumstances are telling you is exactly what the Great Liar wants you to believe, he wants you to embrace your hopeless bedroom view that says you mean nothing and you have nothing to offer and this life is meaningless and God isn't answering your prayers because he has somebody better to deal with. Lies, all lies. Accept them and the battle is over, your strength and beauty is stripped from you lie by lie. Fight them through prayer, reading, and hanging out with other believer, and you win your strength back and your beauty for another day, you have every reason to live for, for things you will not understand until that day comes, curiosity is attractive, especially of the mysterious, so be curious, wait around, see what all the fuss is about. And by the way, you are not alone, you have people who care, who want to listen, and hold you. they're there, look for them.

In Love and Hope,
