I Hate MyselfI don't like my body,I Hate Myself5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I think it's too fat.
So I painted over my pale skin,
now it's beautiful black.
I hate my hair,
so I cut it all off.
I look in the mirror,
and call myself a jerk.
I poured dye into my eyes,
and tried to cover the blue.
I don't want my body,
I want to be like you.
I hate my voice,
so I refuse to speak.
I hate my muscles,
so I act so weak.
My mouth is so small,
I stitched it shut.
I hate my heart,
so I don't love.
People say I'm changing,
they don't understand.
I don't need help,
I don't need a hand.
I'm perfectly fine!
I'm just like everyone else!
The only difference is,
I hate myself.

Len walked into our bedroom. "Hey, Rin," he said, stretching and yawning a little. "that one kid, what was his name? Olive? Or something, well, his first song was released today."
"Oh," I said, turning to face him. "Cool."
I paused and looked back at him. "And it's Oliver."
Len gave me a confused look. "Why do you care? I mean, he's nice and all, but really? What, do you have a crush on him or something?"
I quickly turned away from my brother. " No," I said, trying to stay calm.
He shrugged. "Whatever. Maybe we could become friends, kinda like having a younger brother instead of an annoying twin sister!"
I tossed an orange at him. "Len!"

A sigh escaped Alfred as he sat alone in the conference room. His cerulean eyes were slowly gathering tears at his waterlines, causing his vision to blur. When he attempted to blink back the tears, though, they only seemed to fall and stain his blemish free cheeks with their moist trails. His eyes squeezed shut as tightly as possible and his grip on the edge of the table tightened. Trying not to cry these days was taking a lot of his strength.
Alfred remembered a time when he was really happy, and his loud laughter was honestly joyful. Now, though, it only seemed forced. Hi

*Ludwig's Point of View*
I was wandering aimlessly, not really aware where my soul wandered. I was lost, but not exactly afraid. My pain and suffering were fading the longer I wandered. I wanted it to end: the pain, the suffering, the strife, the hatred, I wanted it all to end. I didn't want to return where I knew only ridicule and pain awaited me. I welcomed the numbness that was closing in around me, enjoying it, embracing it.
The whole of my wanderings had been in relative quiet, nothing really breaking through the silence that engulfed my mind. Until one day, I heard something. It was a voice. My feet, which had ambled slowly and without direction, stopped. I was still. I listened.

"Gilbird's gone missing!" he said, panicked.
"Oh, no! Do you want me to help you look for him?" If it were anyone else's pet, I wouldn't have bothered. But it was Gilbird, and he was just so cute that I had to find him-- and he was my boyfriend's bird, after all.

“Where the hell were you?”
One of your friends raced towards you and tightly embraced you. You were almost knocked down from the impact. The rest of your friends swarmed around you, bombarding you with ridiculous questions that you could barely make out.
Getting everyone to quiet down was a hassle, but you somehow managed to do it.
You closed your eyes and took a deep breath, concentrating on the quietness. Sweet quietness from your friends for once-
Your eyes shot open.
The quiet room that you were rejoicing in was replaced by one that was filled with whispering. It didn’t take long to figure out why. After all, it happened every day.
You glanced at Ivan. But that glance soon turned into a stare. The pleading expression on his face caught your attention. When Ivan was sure he got your attention, he glanced at your friends so quickly that you weren’t sure if you saw it. Then he shook

I walked cautiously into the curtained area today. I saw him lying there, his chest rising and falling beneath the white sheets, his strong arms placed at his sides, just as before.
"Guten Morgen, Ludwig," I greeted him as warmly as I could. I clutched the small brown bottle in my hand with trepidation. I had to clean his wounds today. I hated to cause Ludwig any undue pain, but this had to be done or his wounds could become infected.
I cut his blood-stained bandages as before, still growing a little warm as I looked at his mostly-bare chest, and propped him up to remove them. This time, he didn't wince quite as much. I was both relieved and worried. On one hand, it was good that he was no longer feeling as much pain, but on the other, it could mean that he was falling deeper into unconsciousness and closer to death. His wounds weren't bleeding as profusely as before, but they were still very tender and could easily be reopened.

There was Elsie, calling to me from across the hall for more bandages. There was me grabbing the linen strips and rushing to her side. Then there was the soldier. His right arm was completely severed and gushing blood through what were once layers and layers of clean, white bandages and onto Elsie and two others nurses hands and arms. There was Elsie moving my hands to put pressure on the stump at his shoulder while she started to put a tourniquet on him. There was the blood, so much blood. There was the man chanting prayers under his breath, begging for God's forgiveness and mercy. There was the sound of Elsie's voice, telling me he was gone. There was the blankness in his eyes.

This cleaning was just as bad for him as the last one; he'd gasped and groaned so much that I almost felt every jolt of his pain.

Taking gentle, slow strokes, I cleaned his forehead, his cheeks, his neck, careful as a mother cat cleaning her kits. I dipped the rag into the water again and proceeded to his chest.
I hesitated before I began to clean it. I knew this would hurt him. I pursed my lips as I looked at the near-fatal wounds I was about to touch. I gathered my courage and began to clean it. I lovingly wiped his upper chest first, above where his wounds began. I was amazed that, even with almost a week of disuse, it was still as firm as a drum head.

I had been on pins and needles all day, there were so many wounded that needed tending to.

Twelve years to the day since almost three thousand innocent people had perished in the same buildings that had fallen, along with the planes that had caused them to crash.
