Song of the Day

There’s been a big upset in our national community since Robin William’s death.  It’s brought a lot of attention to the seriousness of mental health, and the tragedy that is suicide.  Depression, anxiety, and fear are all things we like to try to keep at bay, but no one escapes them completely.  The good news is that people overcome these issues every day, and sometimes darkness can be the very thing that forces us to find a brighter, happier path. We just have to know when to ask for help, because none of us has to go through this alone, and sometimes we need someone else to hold our hope, vitality, beauty, and purpose for us until we find it again.

 

You Are Here

by The Wailin’ Jennys

 

You wonder why you wonder when

You wonder how now and then

How you became who you’ve become

 

You are here

And yet you dream of being there

Of being where you think the good life has begun

 

Every darkened hallway

Every fallen dream

Every battle lost and

Every shadow in between

Will bring you to your knees and

Closer to the reason

 

And there’s no making cases

For getting out or trading places

And there’s no turning back

No you are here

 

Who can say who made the choice

In the matter of your birth

Who brought about that fateful day

Well you are here and born with fire and desire

You’re the only one can stand in your own way

 

And every broken arrow

Every hardened smile

Every foolish gamble and

Every lonely mile

Will bring you to your knees and

Closer to the reason

 

And there’s no making cases

For getting out or trading places

And there’s no turning back

No you are here

 

And every sign of love

Every seed that’s growing

Every sweet surrender

To that silent knowing

Will bring you to your knees and

Closer to the reason

 

And there’s no making cases

For getting out or trading places

And there’s no turning back

No you are here
