***Disclaimer*** I AM NOT SUICIDAL!!! However, there are so many people are who are and we ignore them or point the finger like they want to be in that position. Mental health is truly an issue and I hope that I can help raise the awareness so we can start doing more interventions and less funerals and memorial services.

swing low, uninvited insanity,
comin' for to carry me home,
swing low, uninvited insanity,
comin' for to carry me home...

I looked over the river and
what did I see,
comin' for to carry me home,
a lifetime of pain and sorrow
chasin' after me,
comin' for to carry me home...

if you should be the one to find me,
comin' for to carry me home,
don't cry for me, just forget about me,
comin' for to carry me home.

swing low, uninvited insanity,
comin' for to carry me home,
my opportunity to be is up,
my time to be is winding down,
comin' for to carry me home.

I don't know if my soul is heaven bound.
I just hope when my body hits,
it doesn't make a sound....
it's not like anybody paid attention when
I was around...

swing low, uninvited insanity,
comin' for to carry me home...

If you know someone who may be suffering from a mental illness, please try to encourage them to seek professional help.

Oh this is so close to home. Although my illness isn't a mental one.. still the leading cause of death for those living with Chronic Pain Conditions is suicide.

good advice! mental health is nothing to make fun of, or it is not to be ignored. i know of those feelings; i once was having suicidal thoughts (but never carried them out; i was too scared to, plus jesus had a hand in it; i didn't want to hurt the ones i loved, so i never tried to kill myself--*THANK GOD*). thank you for writing this; i did a story about it myself. (fictional, of course.) love, your friend, karen lynn. ((HUGS))
