Seventeen

#suicideprevention </3

You’re just 17
You ain’t grown
But not so young
Wanna join
The cool kids
Be bold

And the others like to brag
Say that they got it bad
But you’re keeping it in
Afraid of unwanted attention

And sometimes for a little while
Any fool can see bright lights as the dawn of a new dayDarling, maybe you just need a little hope to light the way.

Feels like you’ve felt
Everything you can feel.
But as you stand on the tracks
Let me remind you to look back
Just as much as you
Search in front of you
For all the answers

Cause honey you’re just seventeen
Don’t forget Allah is Al-Wadud, Al-Jabbar
Don’t forget, you have his love
No matter what, you can always go back to Him

You belong with the living
Until it’s truthfully your time
My love
Don’t let go
Wear your emotions on your sleeve.
But if you’re hurt
You need to reach out to Allah

He has your real home

Seems like help

Never came when you were begging
Never came when you were screaming, not even

When you were leaning
On the floor
But honey you’re just seventeen
Maybe it feels like you’ve felt
Everything you can feel
But don’t forget the ones you love
Don’t forget, you have their love

Use these pretty words
Let it go
Let it flow
Let it slowly glow into a sunrise
Don’t be selfish with those beautiful eyes
You see things, you realize
So don’t forget mi amor
Don’t pass by and pass on, my love

Too soon

Don’t forget mi amor

Don’t forget my love

Habeebatee, young one

Just too young to die

If you’re hurt, don’t make it worse

And let your heart burst
You need to reach out to Allah

He has your real home,

He has your real hope.
