A Brothers Suicide

He left you behind, I know
But he had to walk his path alone
Couldn't even say why or how
Cuz even to him it was unknown

When depression hits, it hits hard
It made him want to run and hide
So without giving you any regard
He crossed to the other side

You were his bother, you were his friend
But he didn't want to hurt you so he unloved himself instead
He couldn't see beyond the cloud of unhappiness
That the thought of it all being over he wasn't able to resist

When you start to unlove you
You get to wondering if everyone's love is true
Inside you're convinced it's fake
And start to think you're a big mistake

These were the thoughts that ran through his head all day
That caused him to fall and lose his way
He fell so deep into that dark slimy hole
That he couldn't even find his soul

It's hard to conquer a disease of the mind
When your very own thoughts are against you
No matter how hard he tried, his old self he couldn't find
So he thought death could be a redo
