658 (who?)
Take this kiss upon your hand,
For the ones who starved themselves,
Because "ugly" was written all over their mirrors,
Because "fat" was the only thing in their way.

Take this hug around your shoulders,
For the ones who cried themselves to sleep,
Because, unlike everyone else,
Their pillows kept their secrets.

Take this wish for your success,
For the ones with wounds blanketing their wrists,
Because physical pain gave feeling,
And feeling was so hard to find.

Take this whisper in your ear,
For the ones who live through pain,
Through sorrow, through regret,
Through loneliness in crowded rooms,
Through nightmares and judgement and hatred...

Take these words, darling,
These words I say to you.

Stay strong. Never give up. Keep breathing.
Continue inspiring.

Let's keep going,
For the ones who starved themselves,
For the ones who cried themselves to sleep,
For the ones with wounds blanketing their wrists,
For the ones who live through pain,
For the ones forced to survive...

And for the ones who never did.
I don't think this really needs a description.

However, here's a few words for you.

If you're feeling down, lost, hurt, confused, depressed, or even just a little bit upset... Note me. I'm here to help, and if i can't help, well.. I promise to listen.

You guys are the most wonderful people in the world to me. Okay? You guys have made me happier than anything. 

Please, stay strong. <3

There are many people in this world with potential to make this world a paradise but they have one thing in common: They rarely feel themselves or even others - not to speak of the impact they could have on others by sharing their feelings and creativity.

From the bottom of my heart: THANK YOU!

Thank you for writing this wonderful, entertaining, touching piece of poetry.
Thank you for sharing feelings and hope in words that impact many, not just few.
While your words are beautiful they also have meaning!
Something rare these days it seems.
Thank you for finding the right words to make people think, cause that's what art is for!
Not just to give hope and faith in sth. Good in the world, to those who need support,
but to make people think about the impact they leave on others in general.

So you've accomplished sth. stunning:
You helped twice!
You give those who need it hope AND you may (have) prevent(ed) some bad people from continuing on their path of destruction and made them maybe help on occasion...

I write this critique with the utmost joy because you seem to understand the concept of giving.
And that, I might add, in beautiful words!

As I've already mentioned, your technique is excellent but you still manage to transport a meaningful message without compromising between message & style.
And that's what really left me speechless.

What do you think?

This is absolutely beautiful.
This 100% that I've given is one that is from the bottom of my heart
Thank you so much for this
I've actually starved myself and cried myself to sleep, I've lived through pain.
And I can tell this will help me survive the future.

And if anyone gives you any hate for this, just ignore them.
If anyone hates on this it means that they don't know true pain, and don't understand it.

This is an amazing poem, and you're an amazing writer. I love your work.

Well, all I can say is stay amazing, dear.

This is amazing, it reminded me how I felt when I didn't have a shoulder to cry on or someone who cared how I felt during the nights I cried my self to sleep while the days were filled with bullies and judgemental people, nagging me for being too skinny, while I read my spare time away, my 'friends' slowly turning their back on me... 
I cried reading this, I hope anyone that's going through what I had to, has that one person...

I've felt this too... I cry a lot.... Some say too much, but it just.. Tears can say what I can't sometimes. Unfortunately, b/c I cry so much some people don't take them as seriously... So thank you for writing about it.
