Dedication: This poem is for Hannah Baker and for all those like her. It is for those of us who struggle with our body image, and for those of us who struggle with mental illness. I have struggled with mental illness and continue to struggle--but I do have hope. My hope is that whoever watches Thirteen Reasons Why and feels moved by its message, will be kinder to one another, and more aware of the warning signs that someone is hurting. Watch what you say, because words pierce deeper than bullets at times. I will be releasing a book in August of 2019 called "Circle of Dysfunction" based loosely on my life and my struggles with mental illness. I hope all of you will read it, and I will be donating all proceeds from this poem, as well as from my new book, to NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness). Thank you, and know that you are not alone to walk in the shadows any longer. National Suicide Prevention Lifeline Phone Number : 1-800-273-8255When they say life is worth living, what do they mean? Is it something we read about, or just in our dreams?
