Say No to knives
When you take a life, it is much more than that
It is the plans, the dreams, and things we can't compact
The past that means so much and the future yet attained
The folks left to grieve and the many words unsaid
The child left behind and the gaps to be filled by friends.
A life is not in Silo, it is a Mass of Cells
So PAUSE, THINK, BREATHE AND AKS before you hate
What IF it was you on the other side of fate.
