Sadness, depression /
You cut b/c you care
About all the things they've done
Breaking down your heart
To have they're little funYour friends just look away
Your parents do not see
You want to tell them all
But you suffer silentlyI've seen the tears you cry
Blood drying on your cheeks
You push us all away
You've been dying here for weeksI reach my hand out to you
But you turn your back on me
I'd take your pain away
But you will not let me seeCuts are on your arms
Scars that barely fade
I know the things you do
And I hear the things you sayBut when I try to help
You hide inside your shell
I want to pull you out
But you suffer in your hellYour world is smothered in shame
From all the things you've done
You want to kill yourself
But you cannot find a gunYou're too frightened of a noose
And you're frightened of the pain
I'd love to take it all away
But this is how they gain!Don't you see what they all do?!
Can't you tell they do not care?!
The more you cut, the more they laugh!
The things they do aren't fair!They make you want to cut
And they make you want to bleed
But put away that blade!!!
For your pain there is no need!!Teachers say it's just a phase
And counselors step back
No one wants to listen
To your heart that slowly cracksBut when you want to cut
You reach for that damn blade
That's what they want you to do!
Don't let your feelings fadeStand up for yourself
because I'm sick of all your shit
Don't you understand!?
I don't want you just to quit!!I'm here for anyone
I'll offer you a smile
I want to make you laugh
And be better for a whileI'll listen to you talk
And I won't turn away
If you've got something in your head
Then just open up and sayIf you're scared that I won't care
If you think that I won't hear
I can promise you today
That I'll always hold you dearIf you're a stranger on this site
Or someone I know about
I'll be open to your thoughts
I won't even feel a doubtSo you cut b/c you care?
B/c of what they've done?
Don't you see I'm here for you
And you don't have to run?Reaching for that blade
Won't do you any good
Spilling all that blood
Won't ease it like it shouldAnd doing any drugs
Or drinking all that shit
Won't help you in the end
Those habits you must quitSo I urge you all today
In every little way
Keep that blade at bay
B/c things will be okI've been where you have been
I've cut the cuts you have
I've beaten myself bloody
And tried to stop and laughSo I know that it is hard
To ignore the pain inside
But cutting won't relieve it
And you don't have to dieWrite it out on paper
Or tell me when you can
I'll offer you a shoulder
And a helping handThe scars on my arms fade
Day by day, they leave
And I write the things I feel
And that it my releaseI hope I've taught you something
So your pain that you can bare
I know you want to live some days
So I'm showing that I care...

This is about me but i am trying to see it from a differnet view like if i was my bestest friend and stuff like that!
CHANGE, I would like you to know that your poem will surely touch those who are mutilating themselves for it did for me.
I hope you overcome all adversity in life and I wish you a merry christmas and a happy new year.
