Rest in Peace, all of you
Who couldn't take the fight
Who felt life's pressure was too hard
And who died in a war that we shouldn't have to fight.
I'm sorry that none of us could be there for you.
But to all the rest
Always remember that, no matter how lonely you get
And no matter how hurtful the words get
And no matter how discouraged you get
You are never alone.
Because there will always be someone, just as lonely as you
Who's thinking the same thing
Who would give anything to have you, or anyone, as a friend.
Because you are not a freak.
You are not sick.
You are not retarded.
You are unique.
And you are brave enough to admit that
And strong enough to reach out
And that is why
The world is a better place
Because you are alive.
Something I wrote for my school's Spirit Day. We all left notes, poems, bears, flowers, or something at the library memorial(Which is one of the main things in my area that supports Spirit Day) I wrote this down, and left it. It started to rain, and we were all wearing something purple. Even a lot of the annoting, loud kids were quiet. It was melancholy and bittersweet.

For those of you who don't know, Spirit Day remembers everyone who killed themselves after being bullied, especially for being gay or lesbian. One of my best friends is a lesbian, and I would be heartbroken if she killed herself. Luckily, no one in my school really does that, although other schools have kids who do. It also works to prevent bullying.
