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."


There’s something deep inside me,
Keeping me awake.
Pulling, squeezing, tugging;
Giving me heartache.

I don’t know what it is.
I don’t know why it’s there.
It’s making me quite frightened,
It’s giving me a scare.

Maybe it’s the wind,
Maybe it’s the rain,
Or maybe it’s a veiled memory
That’s causing me this pain.

I’ll touch it with my fingers;
I’ll caress it with my cheek.
Perhaps if it thinks I want it,
It’ll let me take a peak.

If it is not fooled,
I’ll beat it with my fist.
I’ll strike it, pound it to the floor
Until it can no longer exist.

And if that does not work,
I’ll forget that it is there.
I’ll let my eyes close leisurely,
Pretending not to care.

i like this!! it gave me a lot to think about, and the reader can envision a lot of different things when reading this. i like it, because you let the reader decide what is going on or happening....yet you painted a vivid enough picture :) great job! check out some of my work if you can, id love your opinion! :) thanks, and keep writing!!! :) :)
