I’m the anorexic at the local gym whom everybody watches but nobody looks at.
I’m the bulimic at school whom everybody pretends not to know about.
I’m the girl in your gym class with too many scars to be telling the truth.
I’m the kid with her head down in the library who is always “fine.”
I’m the boy who 'fell down the stairs'...again.
I’m the child who doesn't show up for school lunch because it's too expensive.
I’m the teenager living a double life in front of your very eyes.

Catch me if you can.
It scares me how much people can pretend not to see.

I can really relate to this, it's touching. And people only see what they wish to see. They ignore everything else

It scares me too.. Okay so I know this sounds false but this made me get tears in my eyes. I can't stand people who just look away as if nothing is wrong when someone else so obviously needs help. And that last line.. at first glance it doesn't seem like much but when you think about it and understand the poem as a whole, it's just.. perfect. That's all I can say about that

I've been on both sides, and I'm not proud of it. There are so many people who are hurting and it just seems like no one cares enough to do anything, because it's not their problem. But it is our problem. It's our freaking problem that there is so much apathy out there.

I've been trying, since my stint as an object of sideways glances, to wake up and see what's really going on, and I've been amazed at what just a few words, a second glance, a written note can do for someone. I've been amazed at all the hurt that we just walk past. And I'm continually amazed by how unexpected people find the outreach. That's one of the saddest parts. Because we all deserve that kind of concern, and it breaks my heart that people think they're not worth it.

So. That's my little rant for the day. Gracias para feedback. :hug:
