Old old poem. Not great but thought I'd share.

For The Broken and The Beautiful

by HeroTheTurtle

To all the people that have attempted to commit suicide: I understand.

To all the people that have skated blades across their wrists in hope to feel something just because they haven't felt anything at all in years: I understand

To the people that starve themselves because the food in front of them can't satisfy the hole in their hearts: I understand.

To the ones that stay up all night crying into the open bottle of sleeping pills in their lap afraid to fall short of death and end up back in the nightmare they revisit each and every night:

I understand.

To the beautiful people who take pain meds all day to try to numb what's emotionally killing them knowing the pills do absolutely nothing: I understand.

To the kids that lie awake at night dreading the outcome of yesterday's math test because they don't want to disappoint the parents that never went to any of their high school basketball games:

I understand.

To the men that would rather kill themselves than to let anyone see them cry because of society's standards: I understand.

To those that have finished themselves because they believe nothing is left for them in this world: I understand.

To those that go crazy every day trying to gain approval from that person they love to the point where they tattoo sad stories across their arm daily: I understand.

Things will get better. Things will always get better. In this world, you were born to love yourself. Don't forget that. Please don't ever forget that.
