Be Mindful of the Disenchanted


Don’t give up on yourself

When you think all is lost

Giving up all hope

Is too great of a cost

Sometimes we are awake

Sometimes we are asleep

Never telling ourselves the truth

That we are consciously willing to speak

You might call it denial

Or a self-defense from pain

Self-medicate to escape reality

How far must we fall before we can reach for the sky again?

I’ve had some set-backs

I have also loved others if it’s all the same

Not unlike the Johnny Mandel song Suicide is Painless

There are many who will not refrain

If you are compassionate

Having a willing moral compass to share

Be mindful of the disenchanted

Heal a heart that is woefully bare
