The REAL me.

by Melanie   Nov 10, 2005

I am the same person
That I've always been
Nothing has changed
Except for one small thing
I am no longer owned
By that shiny little blade
That my life revolved around
For so long, I was so ashamed
I feel that i have been set free
I have overcome my addiction
Now people can see the REAL me
My smiles are no longer fiction
For the scars, I no longer hide
I feel they show the strength
That I hold deep inside
My past, I do not regret
My blade, I will never forget
I Move on and look froward
With my blade in the past
I am no longer the outcast.

    That is a very well written poem. An inspiration to a lot of people I would hope. It's good to know that you stop, if you ever did do it. Keep stong, and keep writing. I enjoyed this poem.
