Gerard Way: "Hey, girls, you're beautiful. Don't look at those stupid magazines with sticklike models. Eat healthy and exercise. That's all. Don't let anyone tell you you're not good enough. You're good enough, you are too good. Love your family with all your heart and listen to it. You are gorgeous, whether you're a size 4 or 14. It doesn't matter what you look like on the outside, as long as you're a good person, as long as you respect others. I know it's been told hundreds of times before, but it's true. Hey, girls, you are beautiful."

Out of the brambles,
Out of death itself,
Out of lifeless stems and thorns,
Spurts a vigor rebel.

A solitary rose,
Miniature in my eyes,
But with none to compare,
I cannon claim.

The rest have gone and perished,
Vanished in the wind
That caresses its lingering petals,
Whispers through its soul.

Curious how the weak,
The small, the faint, the sick,
May rise above contenders,
Bearing their own burden.
