Lend a Hand
Looking in the mirror I can’t believe what I see
A complete stranger is looking back at me
She won’t smile and her eyes are sad,
I can’t believe I’ve gotten this bad.
Her body is weak and her skin is scarred and she is ashamed of every mark,
Her mind is dark, her soul is scared but she’s all alone, nobody cares.
In this war with herself
She’s lost all hope of doing well
She sits alone thoughts are racing around
Feeling like she is going to drown.
She needs a friend to lend a hand
To stop her leaving for another land
Just one person could save her life
To give her hope, to show her light before it’s too late and she gives up the fight.
