Here is a sonf that I wrote for people going through depression/self harm/suisidal tendencies. I do not really have a tune for it, but the style would be more Flyleaf kr Skillet's style. Here goes!

I hate this.

I will break this

If this continues 

Any longer.

I am falling

To what feels like my death.

After years of this,

I'm still crying...

I'm still clinging

To what feels like the truth.

But I have learned

That life isn't what it seems.

What if even this falls;

The ground beneath us?

What shall we do, 

What shall we do if

This falls?

What if there is hope,

With some revival?

What if there is life,

And not survival?

What if there is light,

And not this darkness?

What if even Death 

Crawls away in fear?

What if this Cross was 

The truth that I need?

This Cross that I wear 

Around my neck; as a 

Tie, as a bind, for

Religion's sake.

Then I would be liberated, 

Set free from myself.

What if these blades

Are the effect of my pain

On myself?

What if these cuts

bring no real healing?

What if this fire

Can't purge my soul

And make me new?

What if these burns

Can't save me at all?

What if there is hope,

With some revival?

What if there is life,

And not survival?

What if there is light, 

And not this darkness?

What if even Death

Crawls away in fear?

What if the Cross was

The truth that I need?

This Cross that I wear

Around my neck; as a

Tie, as a bind, for

Religion's sake?

Then I would be liberated,

Set free from myself.

When the World 

Tells me what to think,

What to believe,

And what to strive for;

I will believe

In the Work of the Cross,

I will strive 

To loce myself.

Even when the World

Tries to hold me down!

These cuts will heal,

These scars will fade,

These burns will stay,

As a constant reminder.

But I won't add to the tally,

Racing across my legs.

And I won't  multiply the burns,

Crawling along my arms.

What if there is hope,

With some revival?

What if there is life,

And not survival?

What if there is light,

And not this darkness?

What if even Death

Crawls away in fear?

What if the Cross was

The truth that I need?

This Cross that I wear

Around my neck; as a

Tie, as a bind, for

Religion's sake.

Then I would be liberated,

Set free from myself.

This Love will heal me,

This Cross will purge my soul

And make me new.

I choose to believe 

In the Rising Hope.

I will soar

On wings-like-

The Dawn.

Wow! That sounds awesome!! :D Isn't it amazing how the Holy Spirit works?

I also have friends going through depression, and I pray for them everyday. I'm not much of a songwriter, but I am going to incorporate depression and healing from depression and that sort of thing in some of the stories I plan on writing.

Thanks, guys!  I just have friends going through depression, and it really saddens me.  It has been really cool at my youth group, though. There was a girl there one day, and the Holy Spirit was in the room. She started feeling a little weird, so she went  into the bathroom to wait for her stomach to settle down. While she was in there, she felt a still, small voice telling her to look at her leg, where she had been self-harming by cutting. So she looked at her leg, and all of the scars from her self-harming were gone! She shared her testimony, and two other girls got healed as well! It was awesome!!!
