One less rejected phone call
One more answered text
One less roundabout to avoid face to face
One more recognition of a sad smile
One less second spent in self absorption
One more minute to look around and care
One less whining over inconsequential matters
One more listening ear
We’d have one less person giving up on life
One more person beginning to live again
One less person consumed by depression
One more person spreading joy
One less soul lost to oblivion
One more soul saved and cherished
One less suicide
One more rebirth
It was suicide prevention day, two days ago, and I was too numb too write. Somewhere I felt, would it even make a difference? But somewhere else I wondered what if. So here’s my tiny attempt to remind each one of my readers, that it only takes one. Look around, reach out, spread love, we’re all in this together.
