When words are not enough...

Crying out my silent song
Listen to me please
It won’t take long

Why do you have to hide behind
What’s only seen on the outside
Superficial stuff dies
But the heart within forever thrives

Can’t you see that this is my pain?
Being a witness to you
Throwing your life away

When words are not enough,
How do I get through to you
When a letter is something you disregard
And words are something you don’t listen too.

When actions lead to consequences
Could I have done anything,
To stop this from happening

And I feel as if I’ve failed somehow
When I protect you
Against everything else
But I can’t protect you against yourself.

  it was a good poem and i liked it very much. it displays the truth behind not being able to save someone from them selves. in life you can protect people from falling, being bashed (random) and sometimes making a bad decision but in the end you cant save them from emotions. it made me think of people i know and how all i can do is pray for them becuase ulitmatly it is their own life and not mine to decide on.

  A person really has to be ready to see the good in themselves before anything someone else does or says makes a difference. A lot of the time there is guilt that won't let the person beleive that they deserve anything good to come their way, and nothing a friend can say changes that.
If you are really worried about this person, I'd like you consider getting help for him/her. It's a hard thing to do but sometimes the only thing. Your in a rough spot, but it would be worse if this freind hurt himself.
