Peace

Where do the peaceful waters flow
  in the valley of the shadow there is only confusion
Sorrow grown from self blame 
  lost in the streams of why, how, forgiveness
Not found on these muddy banks
  so hard, so young, taken by their own hand
Choices made in their lives
  run before them, lost like the ripples in the current
Pulled down and on further and we 
  the rock who can't move with it all swirling
How long, how many more before
  we talk, of loss, of guilt and shame, of hurt
Open the door for healing words
  to rain down and carry us onward in the stream of life
Knowing our love forgives
  hoping our words might heal another so the grief 
Doesn't continue onto another
   life, another home, another family, let's name suicide
