Flash 55

Want to join in 55 Flash Friday? Write a story in 55 words, no more, no less and then let the G-man know @

You wouldn’t know by looking at her
How overwhelmed she felt
broken, lost, alone.
She had been out with friends the night before.
Had a good time, laughed, enjoyed.
But Monday morning she didn’t show up for work.
She had taken her life. None of us saw her desperation - Guilt. Heartbroken. A Christian lost.

I pray you gives us your eyes to see the "desperation" around us.

Thanks for sharing, Sarah.

Sometimes it is easy to hide behind a smile.

Laughing on the outside...crying on the inside...It is sad when people think that suicide is the only way out. Not true...God bless.

That's a tough one. I've been there watching others hide behind a facade, unable to expose that they need help. Then taking the wrong life.
My 55 is HERE.

I feel your pain in this one particular dear one. So very sorry.

I thought that was really very good! I feel at a cross-road in my life just at the minute. I am burdened down with things that I cannot do anything about and I'm thinking of taking a break for a couple of weeks. Mainly because of things that happened to me over this past year and my blog going really down-hill at break-neck speed. Time to re-charge batteries for a while, while I think about which direction I want to go.
Many thanks for this post! It was very much appreciated.
