This is to the kidsThis is to the kids1 year ago in Spirit Day More Like This
This is to the kids that couldn't handle the pain
This is to the kids that got bullied for who they are
This is to the kids that got teased for loving the wrong sex.
This is to the kids that got called names in school
This is to the kids that went home with tears in their eyes and a new bruise to cover
so mom wouldn't ask.
This is to the kids that dread going to lunch
because they know what will come at them
because they can't handle the humiliation.
This is to the kids that don't have a sense of home
The kids that cry themselves to sleep
That are losing grip on what's real.
I know it is hard
I know it is painful
And honestly, I know you'd rather die
than stand with this shit one more day.
But you can do it
You have the strength to go on
Don't be afraid to move on.
You are beautiful
You are strong
You are precious to this world
Don't take your life
Don't create more scars
Just look up and smile
and keep fighting no matter what.
Things are hard,
Things are painful
But wouldn't you rathe
