Sydney, Age 13, Vernon, BC

Every day they walk to school.
Panicking about the day ahead of them.
Some days the emptiness ringing inside of them, just gets so hard to bear.
Wishing to tell of this terrible feeling but not knowing how to describe.
Feeling so alone and deserted.
So the feelings are ignored, shoved away.
Until one day the pain gets so intense that even breathing seems too much.
Holding on is their biggest battle.
Wanting to cry but having no real reason to cry.
This pain consumes them and drives them insane.
There must be something more.
But what?
Those who know the answers keep quiet.
They continue their lives forgetting the hollowness as if they had never
experienced it.
Holding the key to life in silence.
