Freshman year I watched a girl I knew
Fall apart after a boy in her class
Had made fun of her scars.
Flash forward three years and
Now, I can easily list more people
Than i can count on my fingers who
Deal with self harm, self hate, self destruction.
But it’s still a joke right?
It’s funny and you were kidding?
Is it funny that one in five teens lives with a mental illness?
Is it funny that suicide is the second leading killer of teens only after accidents?
Making fun of real problems isn’t funny.
Telling someone to kill themself isn’t funny.
