"Centipede" -- Jared RicardoMy body was a battleground
Scarred from the darkness
I couldn’t keep inside of myself the night before
When I decided the only thing I wanted was to not be here

Until I found the part of Bradley I never knew I was missing
Instantly finding home
In a small group of people who think like me
A safe place to be myself, honestly
Sharing in joy and pain

One year has changed everything
I have found friends in the most unlikely places
People who mean more to me than words could ever say
Who taught me how to express my pain
You have done the heaviest of things, my friends
You have changed my plans
