What is it with you?
The person of just a year ago
is dead.
Is it because of your relationship with him?
I can't really say.
But you've turned your back
on your family,
on your friends,
and most importantly,
on God.

We've tried to help you,
but you act like
you don't want our help.

Sometimes the only way to climb back up
is to fall first.
If we have to,
we'll let you fall.

I, for one,
will be more than willing
to say
"I told you so."
Cruel, perhaps,
but just maybe
it's necessary.
