I love this poem, I heard it probably about half a year ago, and every time I would watch it I would cry. Its hard to put it into just one forum, you know? It hits bullying and depression and substance use, lots of things! Its such a beautiful piece of work, its something that you don't come across so often, its perfect

Wow, thanks for sharing. This was my first time hearing the poem. It was so beautiful and encouraging.

Out of the ashes I'm burning like a fire. You can save your apologies, you're nothing but a liar. I've got shame, I've got scars that I will never show. I'm a survivor in more ways than you know. 'Cause all the pain and the truth, I wear like a battle wound. So ashamed, so confused, I was broken and bruised. Now I'm a warrior.

I love this poem. <3 Thanks for posting it, actually. I had a pretty rough day at school today, and it helped to hear these encouraging words again.

Yeah I saw this poem a few months ago on youtube. I always thought it was titled correctly as the poem shows how even after leaving school and getting away from the bullying it can and still does like haunt people somehow. I know for me this is true, bullying has practically destroyed the person I used to be amongst other things to. There's also this song : (it might be kinda triggering in some parts) if you're listening to it with headphones in you'll need to have both in etc as it like fades between ear phone and earphone in some parts, but heres the link : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bC70arytpjw

Yes, it always makes me cry as well (every time) but sometimes watching somthing beuatiful and haunting and just letting yourself cry for a while can be good, I think
