Billy Grates, age 16.

Billy's poem

when i think i cant go on
and i wish i could die
i shiver, shake and cry
there are others like me
they are hoping to see

some cut their wrists
some take extreme twists
i feel for them and i cope
theirs light at the end of all
tunnels filled with hope

a silver lining in a cloud
i am fighting and i am proud
some may view our lives with discretion
but we're the heros' who fight depression.
