Gone in Less Than a Second


All of us have

known one or 

two that

have tried

some of us 

know so many

that when I 

heard I just sighed

it's worse when 

it's close; around

the bend

wishing you could

have done

something to mend

People will talk

gossip spread

around school

some are 

supportive; others

are cruel

I guess you just

don't get it when 

You've never known

knowing they're down

and your heart drops

hearing the phone

It's never ending

No - never goes away - 

so know it could have

been anyone here today

know that no

matter what

you've gone through

there are always

people willing to 

listen to you
