To the girl I saw
With the sad, sad eyes.
To the boy I met
Who wasn't allowed to cry.
To the man I saw
Who was falsely accused.
To the woman I met
Who was badly abused.

This is my ode to you
For you live on despite it.
I'm so proud of you
For you can still fight it.
The world is against you,
But it's not your fault.
It's just the way 
This world was taught.

So live on, live on,
Don't you give up here.
It gets better later,
The light is near.
I believe in you,
I know you can make it.
I'll reach out my hand,
If you need it, just take it.

You're special, 
You're important,
You're not invisible,
You exist, 
And you'll be fine.
Just a poem to all of those who have come so far despite the hurt.

Oh, thank you for this! I'd say something about "things like this" keeping me going, but I can't really say I've ever seen anything quite like this... This is amazing. Great work, very encouraging to someone who's struggling.

What would you say in response to a stranger with their hand outstretched?

That's the beauty of the written word. Sometimes, conveyence of what must be said can achieved only through the power of the pen, and not the body.

Same. There's been times when I needed a helping hand and nobody was there. I hope I can be there when others need help, so they don't feel like I did.

Sometimes it hurts for someone invisible to be seen by a stranger, for having a light shine on one who has been in darkness for so long burns and blinds...but this is a soft light for which one can actually see.
Thank you for writing this.
