“The Bracelet Project.
Each disorder has a color that corresponds to it.
Anorexia is Red.
Bulimia is Purple.
EDNOS is Pink.
Depression is blue.
Self harm is Orange or Black.
Fasting at the time is Green.
Suicidal is Yellow.
Overweight/Obese is Turquoise.
Anxiety/Panic disorder/OCD is Teal.
Adding 1 white bead means you’re trying to recover.
If your bracelet is half of the color that your disease is and half white it means you’re in recovery.
You can also make the strand the main disorder you have then add beads to your lesser disorders, or if you have EDNOS, if you have more anorexic or bulimic tendencies then you can add a red or purple bead.
If you see a girl in public wearing one, you are supposed to make eye contact and point to your bracelet. If she nods then you know she is part of the bracelet project.
Spread awareness about the bracelet project.”

I step out into the road,
Hear a screech of tyres,
I'm told I'm lucky to be alive,
I tell them all they're liars.
Laying alone on a hospital bed,
They tell me the cancer hasn't spread,
They tell me I'm lucky to be alive,
I tell them I never want to survive.
I'm told they got here just in time,
But the overdose was a plan of mine,
They say one more hour and I'd be dead,
Couldn't they leave me alone instead?

You're fucked up
We're all fucked up
but that's okay
We are who we want to be
an everlasting war with society
Hanging by the noose
of poverty and misconception
laughing out suicide
our undead dreams
can never really die
Welcome to our lives
where self medication helps you smile
and forgotten sodomy
Filled in a cyonide world
a sick concoction
of synthetic drugs and
Crying out blasphemy
making truth out of propaganda
take the blade that raped your brother
and the pills that killed your lover
An inspiration made from sin
pain and mistakes
a passion in finding
more than just sorrows
out of these lost souls
Inosense lost as children
just wanting it back
a hopeless wish
made as delinquents
All we are
is what we've become
and losing drug addicts
shot down artists
and starving loners
We're whithered and unseen
but we keep on living
in this war with society

Before you die
Standing in your glass tears,
The shards that you cry.
They'll cut you all over,
And your heart will stop as you bleed.
So don't fall down, dear,
Because that's something you'll need.

To do all those things
That you could only dream of doing
Slicing open your wrists
To watch the life slowly bleed out of you
Hanging off that end of the rope
To feel the breath slowly squeezed out of you
Getting that gun, and taking the shot
To feel your brains blown out of your head
You want to do it
But you're a coward
Just do it already
And save the world
A whole lotta trouble.
Jeff NilsenI'm truthful when I write,Jeff Nilsen3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Maybe it's the only true moments I have in my life
When the writings get shared I know someone else knows the truth too.
The thoughts that linger in my head
Reverberating as I try to beat them down
Only flow neatly when I have a pen in my hand
And a hope in my heart.
I know that when someone reads my writing
They know ME, they know who I am without a covering
It feels good that my English teacher
Knows me, better than anyone in this school
Only because he has read a few of my better pieces
Telling me the poet we based our poetry on
Would be proud and under that an A+
I know I got to him with the story of a past that made me
Who I am as I sit in his class and fake smiles
He knows that I was beat
That I've attempted to take my life
And he smiles warmly at me
And tells me that it is an excellent piece
I think maybe this is the best I have ever felt about writing

Dear Diary .
They say leaves only fall during the fall. But that's the worst lie ever. I've seen leaves wither and fall before, at any times a year, it's not just happening during the winter, oh god how are people naïve to think so. During the whole summer, this leaf have blossomed, lived as happily as it could on the edge of that branch on the big and green oak tree. But the leaf suddenly became sick and brown, way too soon, and at last it was so brown and dry, that it let go from the branch, and parachuted slowly down to the ground in lazy spirals. My dad is that leaf. He used to be the most active man I could ever imagine in my messed up head, he biked to wok, even though it took him a half an hour on that rusty old bike. Every weekend, we went fishing, him my little brother and I. he always carried the heavy boxes of fish we had caught, and then we cooked dinner together. When we, Isaac and I, had relationship or friendship troubles, he bought ice cream, shared
