A voice, a call, a life
Whispering wanting to be heard
Don’t deny it
Please don’t hide it
It’s been silent far too long
When troubles make you self-destructive
Raise your voice in a call for help
When you can’t see the light of day
Raise your voice and someone will be there
If you muffle or silence a voice calling out for help
Everything will remain the way it is
Your life will still be painful
Your words remain unspoken
Your life could near its end
Raise your voice if you want to be heard
Raise your voice if you wish for change
Raise your voice and you will be helped
Raise your voice and your life will change
From that first step towards the light
The first time you feel okay
The first day you don’t meet that darkness
Each time something changes it starts a chain reaction
Another situation solved
Another life saved
Another person facing what they’d rather leave behind
Raise your voice and you will be heard
