you are 16 are you are so sad and there is so much pain
in your life and you don’t have anyone to talk to and
you feel like you have all these thoughts and they’re
just piling up and you are so scared that one day they’re
just going to explode. you hate yourself because you have
all this passion and all these ideas and you don’t know what
to do with them. you’re pissed off because this was not the way
things were supposed to be. teen years sounded a lot more like
parties and friends than APs and suicidal thoughts. you cry
because you don’t get excited about anything anymore and
everything feels like work. you miss having things to look forward to,
and you fear this is what the rest of your life will be like.
you are 16 and you cannot realize how young that is. realize how
many kisses there are to have, how many songs there are to sing
(out of tune in the shower), how many poems there are to write.
you are not a broken heart, you are a body filled with working organs.
you are alive, and you are beautiful. you are human, you were built
to heal. realize that you have years of pain to experience, but you have
an eternity of happiness to catch up on. life may not be rooting for you
right now, but until you keep going, the tables will never turn. you are
a walking miracle, the perfect constellation and the most breathtaking
you are 16 and you are going to make it.
