Nobody is a Lost Cause
Hi folks.  This is one that I wrote last night.  It's a true story.  I am going to make it publicly available in hopes that it is helpful to someone in a small way considering the events of this past week.  Nobody is a lost cause.  I am glad that somebody reminded me of that during my darkest moments of despair.  I hope his words are useful to you too.

Here are the lyrics, in case you would like them:

Nobody is a Lost Cause

My buddy Jeff blew his brains out on the south shore of the lake;

A lifetime of whatever was more than he could take.

He helped me build my house.  He helped a lot of folks.

He gave his time and his money; he was perpetually broke.

A few months before he did it, I was deep inside a hole, shame-filled for the things I had done.  He was the only one that saw me lost in the abyss...Don't remember it exactly, but he said something like this:

"Everybody is broken, sad, and alone.  Everybody is drifting along without a home.  Everybody is shattered and burdened with flaws.  But nobody is a lost cause."

He had a tattoo on his arm of a stupid cartoon man poking out from behind a little wall.

If you asked him what it was, he'd say, "That's Murphy.  You know Murphy's Law?  Anything that can go wrong will go wrong."

And it did.  And it will.  Again and again.  For as long as we are all alive.  When a person is stuck in a terrifying pit, only thing you can do is try to help them out of it.

"Everybody is broken, sad, and alone.  Everybody is drifting along without a home.  Everybody is shattered and burdened with flaws.  But nobody is a lost cause."
