If I Can Do It, So Can You

by BleedingAngel   Apr 15, 2007

I feel so restless
I need to sleep
But my life's a mess
And I want to bleed

But I made a promise
To stop self-harm
I won't break this
I won't cut my arm

I try hard to be strong
I try not to give in
Starting to move on
But I'm hurting within

Please come and safe me
Take this pain away
Come set me free
From living another day

I pull my hair and cry
I need to fight this
Otherwise I will die
Because I can't resist

I look at the blade
Hold it in my hand
Look at the scars I've made
No one will ever understand

I want to see my blood
I don't want to feel
Just one more cut
To make this pain real

One small cut on my arm
That would be okay
Still not self-harm
If I only do one today

So many voices in my head
Telling me what to do
If I could only forget
That I was once with you

My hand is shaking
And my inside is dying
My heart is breaking
With the tears I'm crying

I just need some one
To reach out for me
To make things undone
As they use to be

I dry my tears
And flush out my blade
All these painful years
And look what I made....

I was once addicted to self-harm, thought I would be like that for ever, but one day I just woke up, and promised myself never to cut again and I haven't....I flushed out my blade 8 month ago and I have not made ONE cut since.....I know that, if I can do it, so can you...You just have to be strong and have some one by your side for support.....I will be your support, believe in yourself!!!!

    Hey hunny,
    I chose this poem to win the club's poetry contest, for the self harm catagorie. I chose this poem because I felt it was a really great inspirational read. I know self harm is something that many feel you can never actually stop doing as it is a method of coping. Yet you have stopped and wrote an inspiring message for us all, I think it’ll help so many of us out there. I thought the overall poem, had an excellent flow and the rhyming was good. There was emotion in there that we all can relate to. So congratulations! :)
