Tomorrow Needs You

1-800-273-8255

I have friends with illnesses that range from bipolar disorder to depression, and friends that have attempted to commit suicide or have suicidal thoughts. With this piece I was really focused on highlighting nature- how we interact with it/our correlation to it. It attempts to show how easy it is to use nature as a reason to not get help, but really wanting help at the same time. I think it's hard to remember that nature needs you as much as you need it, and this is why it's so important to tell your friends how much you love them and keep trying to get them help. It is never the time to give up. In this day and age, we need to be kinder to each other and kinder to ourselves. "Rip tides might be choppy, you might be dragged under swallowed by your own darkness, but there is always the moon." If you or a friend need help, you can call the National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-800-273-8255. Reminder: Tomorrow Needs You 

"move," they say. "you are not a tree."

but it is because of the trees i breathe.

"brighten up," they say. "there is no reason to be blue."

but you cannot remove the ocean from man.

"i give up," they say. "i can't help the helpless."

but the moon never allowed waters to just be.
