The right side of the moon. I look up at it every night. It seems to never notice me, either. It doesn’t wanna talk, or I need new glasses. I feel like running today, but I’m not going to. I’m too embarrassed of my body to actually do it. Isn’t it strange how we can be embarrassed of our own body? It's not like we can change our body like an outfit and choose another one.

My glow in the dark heart tells me I’m smart and beautiful. Now, I know what you’re wondering "Hey Bryce! What’s a glow in the dark heart?"

I’m glad you asked! A glow in the dark heart is a soul that spends way to much time in the dark, but for the life of them, they tell you they're FINE and not depressed. You’re not fooling anyone, we can see the problem.

The snow globe of depression you're in is breakable. Nothing is bullet proof. If you keep shooting words with the trigger in your pen, you'll make it out alive. You might come out with scars, but they are nothing but reminders that you can overcome anything thrown at you! So keep shooting light a candle with the matches under your pillow, put the knife hidden in your closet back in the kitchen. Tell your parents you love them your brother, your sister, your friends who are scared that their friend won't make it 'til the morning sunrise to see them graduate, get married… grow.

Either you're sad or you're addicted to being sad. You crave the attention you get when you show up to school with new cuts. I don’t blame you, though you don’t even know you're doing it. So, I guess all we can do is snap you out of it!

Your silent scream was louder than you think.
I love you. We love you. Please turn on the lights to see that we’re in the hall behind the door, waiting with open arms to hug our friend.
