    You wake up each morning, and go straight online, Scrolling through Facebook, Tumblr, Vine. And you feel quite productive, as you waste your time, snapping selfies all showing your “hip” peace sign. We are told by adults to slow down because, time passes quickly…but no one really does. ...

    To the Girls in My Science Class, None of you like me. After all, you all belong to the same clique: a clique I have no interest in joining. We tend to ignore each other. I hear your conversations, but no matter how derogatory, I never interject. Until now. “I’ve been bullied,” one of ...

    The question had been on my mind for awhile. Ever since I’d overheard the teachers talking about her, I’d wanted to know the truth. I don’t remember what spurred me to ask, but the moments that followed would change my life in ways I never fathomed. “Mom?” I whispered. My mother, who ha...

    “Kathryn, My friend called and said you were sitting alone at the field trip today,” My mom had said, as she mopped the kitchen floor. “Why weren’t you sitting with the other girls?” I nervously picked at my fingers. How was I supposed to tell my mom that the girls in my class didn’t li...

    To you, my teacher, who never tried to see my part, to hear my side. To you, math class bully, who made me say things, I didn't understand were so vulgar and mean. To you, Miss Popular, who never realized Your little shunning game, would make me cry. To you, cyber bully, who posted your h...

    I want to tell you a story, of the little girl who still weeps in the back of my mind. Her heart quietly pulsating in her chest, tears slipping through her closed eyes. She was ten when she was first called Ugly. And shortly thereafter, was labelled Freak. Weirdo. Loser. Stupid. The gi...

    Hey Beautiful Girl, standing alone. Breaking under weight of the sticks and the stones. Hey Beautiful Girl, who doesn't fit in. Because of past mistakes, your never forgotten sins. Beautiful girl, I can't dry your tears. I can't take out the hurt, I can't banish ...

    I know you think you're ugly. And that you're not enough. And when you look in the mirror, all you see is the half inch of fat lining your stomach. I know you don't feel beautiful. I know you wish your face wasn't so long. That you had better hair. That you hadn’t pulled...

    She’s short, skinny, young. Her blonde hair covers her eyes, her shirt hangs on her body like an empty sack. You see her arms, how they are intertwined with her brothers. He is evidently special needs. His walk is funny, his smile is off somehow. His white cane stretches in front of them. It rolls...

    Sitting in class, and my brothers seizing body flashes into my mind. And I silently cry. This is pain. Holding his head in my hands, as he thrashes on the ground. Nothing I can do to help. No way to make it stop. This is fear. My brother in the hospital. On our twelfth birthday. ...

    October is Down Syndrome Acceptance month. November is Breast Cancer Awareness month. April is Autism Acceptance month. For many diseases and disorders, there is much attention given, and a lot of public support. This is good. I had a cousin with breast cancer, I have friends with Autism, so don...

    It’s funny, how our mothers and fathers, teachers and friends, tell us to love our bodies. Love ourselves. And then thrust us into the frigid, bleak world of Not Good Enough. With no advance warning on how turbulent the waters are. Isn’t it ironic, how television commercials sa...

    Dressed down by the hawks that turn their eagle eyes, Sweets to the sweet is not in the casket. And the notes she had, have dissolved in the river. Forty thousand brothers, have no match on my heart. A long white gown, to cover her pain. With lilies braided in to turn back the clock. And ...

    Tracy Morgan. Kristen Stewart. Lady Gaga. Kris Allen. Madonna. Lebron James. Jennifer Aniston. These celebrities- though all household names- don’t seem to have that much in common. However, they do have a shared trait, and it’s not a very nice one. All of these celebrities, at one point or anot...

    Alone. In this dark place we call broken, where the winter girls weep for broken dreams, yet nobody hears them. Death. There is beauty in this shattered home, but they dare not look past their sadist demons to see- that even in their pit of longing- the silver stars shine, and the ...

    “So, Aytan.” I’m sitting in a beanbag chair, across from my newest....friend? Acquaintance? At the time I had absolutely no idea what my relationship with Aytan was going to be, and I’ll admit it: that scared me. He looks at me. I study his face, every feature he has is a light brown, ...

    I’m don’t like to play sports. It just isn’t my thing. Needless to say, I also am not a fan of sports stores. For one thing, that bitter smell of the equipment, and for another, the fact that I have nothing to do when I go. So I didn’t enter Sports Authority with a good attitude. Neither ...

    You told me to not wear any make-up. But, I put on some lipstick anyways. When I got downstairs, you asked if my lips were bleeding. Because you didn't want to believe, I'd betrayed your trust....
