    Based on something that has actually happened:


    I was so moved, I had to make something. I'm probably going to draw too.

    Yellow Balloon


    Drove to the Golden Bridge
    My life's already on the ridge

    Got out of my car
    Didn't have to walk far

    I saw someone I didn't know
    Holding a yellow balloon

    The stranger had a marker in hand
    I didn't think about it then

    Today it will be all over

    I didn't belong anywhere
    Never thought anyone would care

    Stepped to the edge
    I couldn't believe it's come to this

    I stopped mid-step
    I just couldn't believe it

    Riding on the cold wind
    Was a yellow balloon

    It read:



    So, what did you think? There's another part I was going to add, but is it better to leave it short?

    What happened in real life was even greater. Over 2000 people made posts begging this man/woman not to jump.

    Thank you for the comment. :)

    Maybe everyone does...even if it's someone they never met.

    I mean, most users here don't know each other and we still try to help. <3
