Aww. While you can find a variety of posts on Miiverse, finding one like this one in Super Mario 3D World—which was posted this weekend by Tiny Cartridge—makes you wish it's just a post where it is someone pulling your leg and not actually a kid throwing out a cry for help.

But if it is real? Ah, I hope they can find some solace in Mario. We tried finding the message, but without knowing the name of the person, it becomes rather difficult to track it down. Still, it's kind of heartbreaking to see this.

For context: Super Mario 3D World lets users draw messages to Miiverse, which then turn up at various points while in the game. It's cool, and it helps you feel connected to other players around the world. Most messages are kind of silly and fun—but not all of them.
