please stay...

Keep your head up, kiddo.

There's so much to discover.

Stop putting yourself down.

There's a lot to uncover.

Stop letting wealth define you.

Your clothes or your grades.

You're going to self- destruct.

pull the pin, grenade.

You don't need a gun, pills

blades, or rope.

You just need some love, and a smidge of hope.

We need you on this Earth

Because you truly matter.

Without you here to guide us,

Our hearts will truly shatter.

So stick it to the man.

We've got your back.

Don't be engulfed

By a mind so black.
