… for the bullied and beautiful

“But I want to tell them that

all of this

is just debris

left over when we finally decide

to smash all the things we thought we used to be,

and if you can’t see anything beautiful about yourself,

get a better mirror,

look a little closer,

stare a little longer,

cos there’s something inside you that made you keep trying

despite everyone who told you to quit.

You built a cast around your broken heart

and signed it yourself,

you signed it, “They were wrong.”
