Let that be a reminder

that people notice when you aren’t there

that people care more than you know

that you are braver than you believe

that you are stronger than you think

that you are twice as beautiful than you ever imagined


let that be a reminder

that you are in control

that’s in the past

that you are beyond it now

that it’s okay if you aren’t feeling okay


let that be a reminder

that you are loved

that you are strong

that you are missed

that you are worth the best

that you deserve to win

that you need to

Always keep fighting


Let that be a reminder

that bad days don’t last forever

    your poem is one of the most honest depictions of life and our need for motivation or our need to feel wanted. i can honestly relate to the feelings portrayed by both the picture and the poem. the feeling of lonesomeness and what has led us to that point but what we need to remember in the confusion.

    Bella, That you for reminding me that I am a person that is strong, loved and cared about. This is a message that all teens need with all the stress they have throughout their teen years. I loved this poem and it makes me see that I am important. Thank You! 🙂

    Thank you for sharing this. It’s really beautiful. I feel like there’s a weird stigma around mental illness and I believe we have to shed more light on this important issue that affects so many people. Thank you for shedding your light.

    Bella I really think this poem is something special. It has a really important message that I feel all high school students need to hear. It’s easy to feel irrelevant and unimportant, but the little reminders that we all matter can make a big difference.
