Standing on a Thread by Ashwin

So your life isn’t perfect.
Whose is anyway?
But just cause you hit a rough patch,
Don’t throw it all away.

You’ve got a lot to live for,
You have a lot to do,
What about your family?
They aren’t ready to say adieu.

Rip yourself out of this funk,
Come on calm down,
Don’t be a punk,
Trust me, you don’t want to do this.

Why would you want to throw it away?
Please dear friend, I want you to stay.
Remember when we were kids and used to play?
You were so pure then, when did you go astray?

NO! Come back!
Oh why? Damn it! Why?
So young, so young,
And I can do nothing now,
Too grief-stricken to cry…
